  • Mountain Macaroni

    I've seen Nigella tweet yummy looking pictures of something she calls Mountain Macaroni, but I can't seem to find the recipe on the website. Is it under a different name?

    From the nigella team:

    Mountain Macaroni is a delicious combination of pancetta, pasta, potatoes and cheese with a creamy wine sauce. It is one of the recipes from Nigella's new book Nigellissima which is published in the UK on Thursday 13th  September. There is also a TV series to accompany the book which will be shown on BBC2 this Autumn.

    Offering Instant Italian Inspiration - Nigellissima was inspired by Nigella's love of Italy and Italian food which goes back to her university days, when she studied modern languages and worked in the country for a year as a chambermaid! The book is full of dishes with Nigella's unique take on Italian food and includes fast "express" recipes, relaxed weekend dishes and fabulous party food.

    The book is published in the UK by Chatto & Windus. The US edition of Nigellissima is due to be published in January 2013 by Crown Publishing Group.
