  • About

This is a classic Roman dish. If you order it in a restaurant in Rome you may find that when the waiter brings the dish to your table he covers it with a plate and goes away. You will wonder what has gotten into him since covering a dish of pasta is probably the worst thing you can do to it. Actually he knows exactly what he’s doing: trapping the steam from the hot pasta infuses it with the spiciness of the hot red pepper.
