CAPELLINI WITH AROMATIC HERBS – “suddenly picked up from somewhere”

Often, the things we despise most often give us great surprises. I never appreciated the “instant noodles” formulas on the packaging of foods but today was another story.

Holding the capellini in my hand as I reflected on what I’d eaten at lunchtime, the words “Capellini alle erbe aromatiche” (In Italian meaning Capellini with aromatic herbs) on the casket hit the line of thought. It reminds me of the spaghetti al sugo basilico that I once enjoyed in Rome, about the simplicity of being perfect in a dish.

Sometimes when we are constantly chasing after the perfect and trying to paint, trying to complicate the problem while forgetting that, it does not have to be fussy, what style – the simplicity itself with just a little The delicate process is just that we have the perfect.

The formula that I “picked up” on the box probably came to that threshold, not raw materials, not technical trouble but the taste it brings also never make it bad manners tiger

The basis of this pasta is still the aglio olio sauce – a mild sauce, so also, it is more suitable for capellini than ever. What is special about capellini alle erbe aromatiche is that it combines the flavors of the five typical Mediterranean herbs, along with the freshness of the tomatoes and the fatty aroma of the garlic oil. Very mild fever, very mouthful. Enjoy a piece with the smell of fresh squid, cool sweet of fresh tomatoes, fatty leek of wheat pasta sauce, then suddenly see the sweet basil, see the rosemary, see the rosemary The thyme, see the little spicy warm sage and a little bit of wild parsley. Harmony and freshness, not to mention beautiful, that is what can be said about capellini alle erbe aromatiche.
