Italian Pastas - New Recipes with Francesca Giarraffa
Mention Italy and most people think of pasta. These pasta recipes go well beyond your basic pasta and tomato sauce. Francesca starts with Pappardelle con Gamberi, egg pasta tossed with sauteed shrimp and asparagus in a white cream sauce. Rigatoni con Salsiccia features homemade sausage meat sautéed in white wine and herbs, then tossed with pasta and ricotta cheese. Fusilli con Prosciutto is a helix shaped pasta tossed in a rich tomato sauce simmered with a dry sparkling wine and prosciutto, then topped with pecorino romano cheese.
