Making of #2014 #NewYear’s #Eve homemade #Pasta Orecchiette

Hosted by a Puglia’s family. Decided to document how to prepare the traditional local pasta noodles: orecchiette pugliesi.

Of course made only with semolina (no soft wheat flour) and tap water. First, preparation of the dough, then homemade work out of orecchiette, one by one.
Dressing: Napoli’s tomato sauce: ragù alla napoletana…
Meat cooked for hours to better with tomato sauce….









“Pasta e fagioli” @Sunday lunch. (Noodles with white beans, Italian Style)

Today we decided to have one of easiest dishes of Italian cuisine, yet one of the tastiest!
In a pan we fried low temperature a can of white beans and italian fresh sausage minced with olive oil. Then we cook Barilla’s noodles. As soon as noodles were “al dente”, we mixed them into the with beans pot… Let it rest for 5 minutes… And the magic was done! Enjoy!


Curry Shrimps Linguini

Ok tonight experiment:
– seasonig made cooking shrimps with fresh tomatoes, zucchini, algae and curry in olive oil
– some shrimps have been mixed and then added to the seasonig as a cream
– used Himalaya salt to give delicate taste to the seasoning itself
– De Cecco linguini cooked in boiling water for 8 minutes, then added to the pan containing the seasonig to cook on high flame for other 3 minutes.

Ok maybe I eat too much this time!
