I sampled a taste of these simple pasta dishes on my journey in Italy. At that point in the trip, I was traveling alone, so I dined at the local eateries, sitting at the long communal tables with other diners. The only question I was asked was “rosso or bianco”. Truly some of the best food I have every tasted were at the most humble establishments – dare I say the food was cooked with love.
You will love this capellini with garlic, oil and chile pepper. It will be come a default dish when you are tired, did not shop or just want the comfort of a bowl of simple pasta, a little jewel from my kitchen to yours.
As always, enjoy. B
