Spicy pasta kit
Casarecce Pasta Bundle Kit
Serves 4 +
800g x Fresh casarecce pasta
500g x Tomato sauce
1 x N’duja salami
1 x Salted ricotta
In the kit we’ve added plenty of extra N’duja and ricotta salata for you to get creative with and to do some of your own experiments.
N’duja salami is a typical artisan product of Calabria, prepared with cuts of pork shoulder, belly and cheek, it’s then lightly smoked and cured with the addition of salt and a plentiful of hot chillies from Monteporo.
N’duja is great when spread directly on to a bruschetta, melted into a tomato sauce or popped onto a pizza.
Fresh pasta cooks in just a few minutes. Allow 1 litre of water per 100g of pasta and bring to a boil. Add 1 generous tablespoon of coarse sea salt per litre to the boiling water, then add the pasta and stir gently and occasionally.
Our fresh pasta and sauces will keep for 2/3 days in the fridge and up to 1 month in the freezer.
If you are cooking frozen pasta, place it directly from the freezer into boiling water and allow 1-2 extra minutes depending on the size and shape.
Add a spoonful of cooking water per serving to the sauce, it will help “loosen” and make your meal creamy, this is because you’ll be adding the lost starch back to the pasta.
