by Anna Del Conte (Square Peg, 2012)
I make no secret of the fact that I am a lifelong fan of Anna del Conte, and feel that any cook's library that doesn't include her books misses indispensible volumes. And whether you have all of her books or none of them, this is a cosy-must have, delivering unfussy Italian home cooking at its best. But then, Anna is the best!
I really could have chosen any of the recipes from this book but I am just craving her penne with onion sauce right now. Anna herself claims it to be her "standby sauce for pasta during the winter when I find tomato sauce too summery and cool, and comforting enough on a dark cold day."
I have a bit of a thing for spelt spaghetti at the moment and can heartily recommend it with that!
Penne with Onion Sauce
Penne in Salsa de Cipolle
This is my standby sauce for pasta during the winter when I find tomato sauce too summery and cool, and comforting enough on a dark cold day.
Serves 4 as a starter or 3 as a main course
