Spaghetti alla chitarra with fresh tomatoes, garlic, chilli and rocket
When Gino was in Pescara – the main city in the Abruzzo region – he spent the morning with Giovanni Minicucci, the founder of the pasta shop Chitarra Antica, making spaghetti alla chitarra in the traditional way. He then rustled up a quick fresh tomato and chilli pasta sauce – the type that every Italian makes at home. So simple, yet so delicious. If you can’t find spaghetti alla chitarra, use any good-quality spaghetti for this dish.
VEGETARIAN CARBONARA with zucchini and fresh parsley - Vegetarian Carbonara! I love traditional Carbonara, but sometimes I opt for a more light and healthy version. Zucchini pair greatly with eggs and Pecorino Romano cheese. Zucchini have to be chopped big enough to be cooked until golden brown but not mushy. The main question is: creamy or not creamy? For Italian people there is an only question: creamy. If the yolks coagulate, for us sounds like a disaster! - healthy recipes dinner recipe
