It’s quite a performance. This recipe traditionally considered the poor man’s spaghetti, is the big hit of high-end dinners in Paris. And it just happens that, Roberta, the chicest of all the mammas, is unveiling her secret recipe for us. This recipe is excerpted from the book L’Italie de Roberta, by Roberta Nacmias and Sébastien Cauchon, published by Editions Brigitte Eveno, €19.90.
PREPARATION : 10 min
CUISSON : 15 min
First prepare the sauce. Pan fry the garlic and the pimento (whole !) in a little bit of olive oil. As soon as they have taken some colour, add the anchovies, previously chopped up finely, the coulis of tomatoes and the glazed tomatoes. Allow to cook on a low flame until you obtain an unctuous sauce.
Season if need be. Away from the flame, add the olives.
Cook the pasta in a large pot of salty boiling water then drain coarsely. Pour the pasta in a pan containing the sauce and quickly pan fry on high flame. Serve immediately and sprinkle with grated pecorino.
