Pasta Poverra

These pasta dishes are rustic and simple and all are delicious. The key is simplicity itself. A pasta, olive oil and a couple of garlic cloves and an ounce of Parmigiano Reggiano or Pecorino Romano, Dry Asiago (the actual cheeses not something pre-grated in a box!) grated into a sauce like concoction makes the day! Additions can be a few leaves of basil or Italian parsley or 1/2 cup of Ricotta cheese thinned with a 1/2 cup of the pasta water after the pasta is cooked. Any type of pasta will do. Boiled al dente and the sauce ingredients folded in gently.
Good Luck and Good Eating to you!

Poverra, translated in English, is poor. This is why the pasta is such a basic recipe, with few ingredients.

sometimes more is indeed less, just as poor can be rich
