Todays' recipe is one of my grandmother's favourite as well as the tastiest pasta ever: Bucatini al forno. It is basically a baked pasta cooked directly into the tomato sauce which thickens and reduce so much that the surface of the pasta gets soaked with it....delicious.
Among the several recipes I wanted to make once home I picked one which originated in the area of Palermo, although nowadays you find it everywhere in Sicily. It's called Pasta con le Sarde.
The Italian Cusine is extraordinaire. Based on local products, each region and even each city or village has its own traditional recipe thus making the so-called “Mediterranean diet” listed among the UNESCO intangible world Heritage.
