Gnocchi alla Sorrentina (v)
This gnocchi recipe hails from Sorrento and champions some of Campania’s most famous ingredients ? flavourful tomatoes and creamy mozzarella. As the cheese melts into the sauce, it binds everything together with gooey strings of indulgence ? a perfect combination of hearty comfort food and the flavours of Italian summertime. Suitable for vegetarians.
Arrabbiata in Italian means “angry,” and this classic pasta dish, originating in the Lazio region around Rome, gets its name from the spicy tomato sauce with a lovely kick given by the nduja. Very quick and easy to make.
