In Italy, pasta is quite often a kind of “ritual” used to share a great time with friends. It’s surely the case with spaghetti sciue`-sciue`(pronounced shoowae-shoowae) from the Naples-Caserta area, which is where I grew-up.
Let’s pretend that suddenly you show up at my home unannounced, I’ll surelyprepare spaghetti sciue`-sciue`. The name means “quickly-quickly” in the dialect from Naples. This recipe is so fast to prepare that everybody loves it.
Just start with tomatoes (red-any kind), garlic, basil (do not use the mint-basil used for Asian recipes), and extra virgin olive oil. You’ll use spaghetti (or linguine) for this dish.
