Is there anything more romantic than sharing a sumptuous string of spaghetti over a candlelit dinner? You too can create the iconic 'spaghetti scene' from Lady and the Tramp Day with spaghetti from us.
Spaghetti alla chitarra is a traditional dish hailing from Abruzzo, Italy and is made using a tool resembling a guitar, or chitarra. The chitarra is a wooden frame with parallel wires that the pasta dough is pushed through to give the individual strands their shape.
Spaghetti Bolognese is not Italian!
In Italy, the notion of spaghetti with bolognese… ragù is not only shocking but culinarily criminal. Indeed, the Italian nation, unlike in so many other areas, is resoundingly unified in its rejection of what non-Italians fondly know as spag bol. The Mayor of Bologna, Virginio Merola, even decried spaghetti Bolognese as “fake news”, calling tourist trap Bologna restaurants serving the dish “shameless”.
And although we’d promised – sworn, even – that we would never feature this dish on our website, it seems our devilish side has, as it so often does, gotten the better of us. Check out our Gourmet Spaghetti Bolognese which is only available certain times of the year.
Cooking Spaghetti with us?
Cooking Time = 5mins
Bring a large saucepan of salted water to the boil.
Cook the spaghetti in the boiling water for 3-4 minutes until ‘al dente’ (check a strand before removing from the pan). Stir often to avoid the strands sticking together.
Whilst the pasta cooks, put the polpettine and sauce in a large pan, add 1-2 tbsp (20ml) of the boiling cooking water, cover with a lid and heat until each polpettine is piping hot throughout.
Transfer the pasta to the polpettine. Scatter with the Parmesan. Buon appetito.
