Spaghetti with peppers

A simple and colorful pasta, that brings joy and flavor. Spaghetti with peppers and sautéed onions, with a pinch, but just a pinch of Saffron that enhances the natural yellow pasta, topped with chopped capers and ' cucunci '. The cucunci are the fruit of the caper plant, whose Capers are gems and, as the capers, you consume under oil, sotto aceto o sotto sale. Per finire, a nice sprinkling of baked ricotta, But even a simple Parmesan will look good… If you like try the peppers Mediterranean spaghetti with peppers and cheese or the mezzemaniche creamy with Bacon.

Ingredients for 4 people:

  • 2 red bell peppers and 2 yellow peppers
  • a golden onion
  • 400 g spaghetti
  • 6 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • half a glass of dry white wine
  • 15 grams of chopped capers
  • 8 cucunci
  • No saffron
  • salt and pepper
  • a handful of chopped parsley
  • 60 grams of grated ricotta infornata
  • 30 grams of grated Parmesan cheese

First wash and clean the peppers, remove the seeds and the white members of the vegetable. Get them apart and then into thin strips (about 10 cm in length and half a centimeter thick). Clean and slice very thinly the onion.

In a pan put oil, allow to warm up, Add the onion and sauté over low heat for 5 minutes, being careful not to burn it. Add the peppers and stir well to brush them with oil, Once you have taken heat, Add the dry white wine, the chopped capers and cucunci and salt.

Make it cook on medium heat for approximately 10-15 minutes. Boil the pasta in salted water in which you will put the pinch of Saffron: drain putting aside a little of the cooking water. Combine the pasta with peppers and blows it all in the pan for a minute, by adding a few tablespoons of the cooking water if needed. Stir in the parmesan and serve.

Sprinkle with finely chopped fresh parsley and baked ricotta.

THE PAIRING: With this simple dish of Mediterranean flavors and decided, We suggest a white wine of Sicily, a Ab ofWineries Cusumano: a autochthonous white, with floral, medium bodied and tangy which goes well with the sweetness from the peppers and the salty capers and cucunci, serve cool at a temperature of 8-10 degrees.
