  • About

This member of the pasta fagioli family is essentially Roman in character, and is rather more enterprisingly spiced than most Italian dishes. Northern Italians refer to Romans as Arabs and not politely, seeing themselves as essentially North European, and the Romans as belonging to the sensuous exotic south, to the Mediterranean. The Romans should be proud of the Arab connection shown so clearly in this dish.
