11 Of The Most Common Italian Sauces

11 Of The Most Common Italian Sauces ...

Every Italian Region has signature dishes steeped in history and special venues that serve them. At family inns on farms, intimate trattorias and fine ristorantes ... There is no single Italian cuisine, as there is no single American cuisine ... However, here are eleven of the most common sauces and their most commonly exported and known paired perfectly pasta shapes ...

1. Fruti di Mare: Shellfish and mixed seafood pair with Capelli d“Angelo and / or Angel Hair ...

2. Aglio e Olivo: Extra virgin olive oil and garlic marry perfectly with long pasta such as Linguini ...

3. All“ Amatriciana: This tomato, chili pepper and panceta sauce couple famously with Bucatini.

4. Burro e Savia: Butter and Sage are absolutely stunning with stuffed pasta varieties, for example: crescent shaped agnoletti or ravioli ...

5. Pesto di Genovese: Fresh Basil herb, Reggiano Parmesano, Garlic, Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Pinenuts and Salt and Freshly Grinded Black Pepper is a terrific pair with ribbon pasta and / or stuffed pasta ...

6. Salsa di Noci: Noci are walnuts and this sauce is a wonderful match for Ribbon shaped pasta.

7. Sugo di Pesce: Pesce is fish in English, thus the perfect pair with home made egg ribbon pasta or Penne Rigate.

8. Norma di Catania: This Sicilian Sauce from Catania, is made with roasted eggplant, basil, tomato and garlic, and is commonly served with Rigatoni and / or Ribbon Pasta.

9. Alla Napoletana: This classic tomato sauce easily adopts to all types of pasta.

10. Allo Spezzatino: This is a type of Ragł, with a beef stew consistency. Its best match up is Ribbon Pasta.

11. Carbonara: This pancetta or bacon, Reggiano Parmesano and Egg sauce couples with fine ribbon pasta.

Have nice Tuesday,
Ciao.

Could you elaborate a little on #s 1 and 7? As written, they don't describe a sauce, just seafood.

Buon Giorno,

I had wanted to further mention some details about the Fruitti di Mare, which means Fruits of the Sea and Sugo di Pesce:

Fruitti di Mare: this is a red tomato based sauce and served with a variety of shellfish for E.G.: squid, clams, mussels and shrimps.

Sugo di Pesce: this is a white sauce created from fish stock, parsley, a variety of white fish varieties, onion, herbs, and white wine.

Have a nice wkend,
Margi.
