Spaghetti Alla Nerano

From Chef Rosario:

“Spring is right here and summer time is simply across the nook. A real signal of the season is that farmers’ markets are again! This month I’ll take you to a area that completely embodies summery climate: Campania. This area is residence to lovely locations just like the Amalfi coast, the Gulf of Naples, and the island of Capri. However Campania (and extra particularly Gragnano, close to Naples) can also be the (alleged) birthplace of extruded pasta akin to spaghetti, rigatoni, and many others.

Why not purchase some high quality spaghetti and make the native staple “Spaghetti alla Nerano?”

Nerano is the title of a dreamy small city on the Sorrento peninsula. This recipe is claimed to have originated in an area restaurant. The cheese used within the unique recipe is known as “Provolone del Monaco” however I discovered {that a} good caciocavallo was excellent with its buttery texture and gentle aroma.”
