« And yes... | Main | Insalata estiva di pasta ai gamberetti (Summer pasta salad with shrimp) »



This is the kind of dish that is perfect to eat on a lazy summer night on the back patio. Thanks for the recipe!


It's absolutely one of the laziest - and yummiest - recipes I know, Karen. Thanks for the thanks and for your comment! :)


Loved all your recipes, Italian is by far my favorite cuisine. Love the fresh approach, specially now that we finally have a good sunny weather in NY.

This sounds like my kind of dish--quick, easy and tasty! I've always been intrigued by Puglian cooking--my grandfather was from Puglia but he married a gal (my grandmother...) from Campania, so my knowledge of cucina pugliese is limited to orecchiette con broccoletti and a few other dishes. Glad I found your site!


@Anna: thank you for the feedback and enjoy beautiful NY! I'd love to come back soon. :)
@Frank: thank to you too, I appreciate your site a lot too!!! And I'll be glad to share some more of my Apulian recipes with you. :)


Hello Nicoletta. Here is an italian living since quite a lot in Amsterdam, the Netherlands :)
I am from Bologna thus my family sets its origins from Puglia, I really love this recipe and actually I am cooking it right now !!!!
Even is It is really problematic to find the ricotta salata here cause, unfortunately, dutch people dont have any taste for food at all and the supermarket are full of food that never saw the sun not even once :(
Luckily there are some specialized italian shops where you can find these products at a rather expensive price.
We are italians and we absolutely need it, so you open a bit more your money bag and dream of a nice plate of pasta crudarola :P


Ciao Francesco, nice to read you! :)
The ricotta salata is now available in Amsterdam at the wholesalers (groothandels) and so, I guess, also in good Italian shops as you said. Otherwise I'll be glad to get you half a big ricotta, vacuumed, from the Kweker and sell it to you for the buying price! :)


P.S.: Check out my Italian-English blog too, http://cimedirapa.wordpress.com/! :)
