Pasta

The Pasta is probably the most important speciality you’ll find in Italy. It’s an important part of our Lifestyle, since ever.   There are very many ways of cooking pasta ( it’s impossible to list here all of them ), with many different dressings. Pasta can be seasoned with different vegetables, with  tomatoes, with cheese’s creams, with different meats ragouts, with fishes and crustaceans, with mushrooms, with olive oil and garlic, with tomatoes and hot chilly pepper, and also with different mixes of these aforementioned elements.     Take  a  look at this fantastic video where a great cook prepares a traditional italian Pasta dish: Spaghetti with cheese ( cacio ) and black pepper:   We’d like to remind you some famous Pasta dishes;  expression of our Country:

Cappelletti with meat broth ( meat broth made with beef, hen, chicken and some     vegetables as carrots, onions and celery ) to be seasoned with Parmigiano cheese

Penne all’arrabiata ( penne with spicy tomatoes )

Lasagne emiliane ( with various layers of green pasta interspersed by meat’s ragù with bechamel)

Orecchiette alle cime di rapa (with turnips)

Spaghetti al pomodoro ( spaghetti with tomatoes ) to be seasoned

Spaghetti ai frutti di mare ( spaghetti with various sea shellfishes as clams, mussels, octopuses, shrimpes, etc…)

Tortelli e Tortelloni ( tortelli and big tortelli with various fillings as: pumpkin, chicory and ricotta,mushrooms, and many others ) to be seasoned with the same cheese above

Mushroom Risotto with porcini mushrooms

The typical Italian lunch or dinner would contemplate a starter, a first course of pasta, a main course of meat with a side dish, a cake, a good espresso coffe and a shot of grappa; everything with a good bottle of wine and mineral water. Now, however, this is changed a bit: except for events and for the holydays, where the meal is still big, italians generally prefer a starter with a sole dish after ( first or main course ).
