Polpettine di Paolo

What I love also about blogging is meeting other bloggers as we share and break bread with recipes! My new blogger cumara is Adri Barr Crocetti. She purchased Breaking Bread in L’Aquila and loved my meatball recipe. Check out Adri’s blog.

Adri writes her lovely commentary about this tasty dish!:

What do you think? Would love to hear from you!

Pasta alla Chitarra con Polpettine di Paolo/(Pasta alla Chitarra with Paul’s Meatballs)

Paul’s meatballs were famous-not only for their flavor, but also for their size: he liked them small! Though, he was a fabulous cook, once he let me in the kitchen (and taught me how to make his favorites), he didn’t come back in. As queen of the kitchen, I began making his favorites, like this one. We would sometimes serve these meatballs on top of pasta alla chitarra, Abruzzo’s famous pasta. This is made with a pasta guitar (it looks like a harp) to produce squarish-shaped spaghetti. You can also use spaghetti or your favorite pasta. Growing up, my mother would serve it with our favorite rigatoni or penne pasta.

a presto,
