Linguine with escarole, black olives and bread crumbs

Today's recipe is the linguine with escarole and black olives, capers from Pantelleria IGP and bread crumbs. A recipe for Sicilian inspiration, destined to save countless lunches or dinners with taste and speed. This first plate, that is prepared in 10 real minutes, practically in the cooking time of the pasta, it is vegan, like most Sicilian cuisine of peasant origin. I always like to remember as the basis of Sicilian cuisine, especially inland, is a poor basis, composed mainly of vegetables, extra virgin olive oil and cereals: the meat, fish and even cheese ingredients were not used every day.

I would not change the recipe and not add grated cheese to replace the 'dough atturrata', fried bread. Parmesan or pecorino would change the balance of a good pot just as it is, with the bitter note of the olives, the tangy capers and the crisp and refreshing of escarole. If you love the Sicilian cuisine, remember that you can find this and many other of the island in my SICILIAN RECIPES.

The linguine with escarole and olives are one of the dishes I make most often when I'm tired, I half-empty the refrigerator or simply want to cook something quick and light enough. Obviously I abound with chilli and chilli oil, but you do as you like. I recommend, used an excellent extra virgin olive oil, because along with escarole it is the real star of the dish. Try and tell me if I have no reason. Is, since you purchased the escarole, Also try the delicious PIE AND ANCHOVIES SCAROLA SICILIAN, as second or as a starter. Have a good day!

Then, you can use curly endive, turnips, Black Cabbage… same procedure but in the case of turnip tops and black cabbage must first blanch for 3-4 minutes in boiling salted water. Let me know, ADA

If you have a look on the site you will also find a paste made precisely with the cabbage, a risotto and some other recipe. If a vegetable that is easy to find perhaps you might be interested. Appearance news. ADA
