Salty, sweet, aromatic, and fresh, <em>pasta con le sarde</em> offers a peek into Sicily's rich cultural heritage. While sardines and anchovies tell the story of the islands maritime significance, bucatini, wild fennel and toasted breadcrumbs not to its agrarian roots, and pine nuts and raisins speak to its trade history with North Africa.
Eat Like an Italian
Found on menus globally, Bucatini is a favorite throughout Italy. Though perfect for saucy dishes such as carbonara and bolognese, one dish that is synonymous with this pasta is bucatini all’Amatriciana. Boasting deeply flavorful guanciale and rich tomatoes, this simple dish will have you eating like an Italian every chance you get.
