GUITAR SAUCE

GUITAR PASTA SAUCE

HOME > PASTA
Maccheroni alla chitarra
Abruzzi
Preparation - Medium
Serves 4

A famous fresh-egg-pasta dish from the Abruzzi region of Italy. The 'guitar' is a wooden frame strung with innumerable wires close together - for cutting the pasta in thin strips by laying the pasta on the 'strings' and passing a roller over it.

You can make fresh pasta and roll it slightly thicker than for fettucine (about a tenth of an inch) then cut it into narrow strips (again, about a tenth of an inch) for a rough approximation of the original - or any fresh pasta from the refrigerator section of your local store will do. Remember that fresh pasta cooks very quickly: 3 - 4 minutes on average.

Best with fresh tomatoes.

INGREDIENTS:
  • 6 oz. pancetta or unsmoked bacon
  • 3 1/2 oz. butter
  • 1 1/2 pounds peeled, diced fresh tomatoes, or use small (16oz) tinned tomatoes
  • 3 1/2 oz. pecorino and or Parmesan cheese, grated.
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 lb pasta - fresh if possible
OO Frying pan, pasta pot.

METHOD:
  1. DICE the bacon and sauté in the butter until golden.
  2. ADD the cut tomato pieces and pepper and cook for a few more minutes, until soft.
  3. ADD the salt carefully, as the bacon is already salty.
  4. COOK the pasta.
  5. SERVE with grated cheese.
