Pasta with cod, sun-dried tomatoes and black olives

To prepare the dough with the cod in white, put the cod in a saucepan and cover it with milk or water, Blanch for 10 minutes, then remove the skin, any bones and get it into pieces not too small. Chop dried tomatoes strips, chop the olives by removing the stone.

Put the oil and garlic in a pan, FRY without Browning and unite the cod: Sauté over high heat and deglaze with wine. Evaporate and add capers, Sun-dried tomatoes, the olives, Remove garlic, season with salt and pepper.

Toast the breadcrumbs in a pan with a teaspoon of extra virgin olive oil until golden.

Boil the pasta in plenty of salted water and drain it al dente by setting aside some cooking water. Sauté the pasta with the sauce by combining a little cooking water if necessary to keep better and possibly a drizzle of evo oil. Add the grated lemon zest.

Serve and sprinkle spaghetti with bread crumbs toasted. Bon appétit!


MATCHING: The strong boost in flavor and tastes of this first course lead us to match a drink that can create an overall balanced taste. We did not choose a wine, but a beer. Mielika, pale Lager, reflections, produced with heather honey from piedmontese birricifio Baladin: It smells like honey and orange, soft, dense foam, and slightly bitter finale.
