Pasta with swordfish sauce sicilian style. The pasta with glutton sauce is a typical Sicilian dish, indeed right in Messina, my city. What I have revisited in 'fast’ but without losing the taste and scents. Who is of Messina you can not not know the swordfish greedy (just to say, mentions in a book by Alain Ducasse also recipes that Messina is not). A riot of simple ingredients that, put together, become a sauce from the amazing flavor, linked by the thread of the flavor. Even without the fish would be a delicious sauce, but with swordfish or sword fish (Another cornerstone of traditional Sicilian cuisine), the flavor is complemented becoming heavenly.
Differences with the traditional greedy sauce
Now we come to the differences between the rigatoni with swordfish Messina style and the traditional recipe SWORD FISH AT A greedy MESSINESE, are first cooked in the sauce swordfish touches very tall and big. If you want to try it, look at the VIDEO RECIPE and you'll see how simple it is to do. Wanting to make a quick recipe, I used the slices of swordfish that I cut into chunks. For the sauce I proceeded according to the traditional recipe. Once cooked with vegetables, I added swordfish. After a net minutes, I extinguished the fire and covered, to do to remain soft fish but make sure it's sent to the sauce its flavor.
This is a dish of my children ', I really love. I find that this fast version, perfect for those on a budget (let's face it, swordfish is not a cheap fish) and wants to prepare a first course of elegant and fast fish. A perfect combination of tradition and modern tastes, because it's easy, light and tasty. That being said, if every time you want to eat swordfish, have a look at all my RECIPES WITH SWORDFISH for inspiration, all my RECIPES WITH BLUE FISH and my SICILIAN RECIPES. Have a good day!

In Messina the traditionally used pulp for swordfish are greedy Spaccatelle, I hate them cordially and rarely found outside Sicily. I much prefer short pasta or even spaghetti. Another format used, but even that hard to find outside Sicily, are the daisies.
