Potenza, the regional capital of Basilicata, is famous for having the most extreme temperatures in Italy. When the weather is icy, a one-pot dish like this one is ideal. The sauce is cooked with a large piece of flattened pork or beef in it to impart a rich flavour. In Potenza, the pasta and the sauce would be served as a substantial, nourishing first course and the meat then served as a flavoursome second course, or it can even be cooled and reserved for a separate meal.
