Tutto Calabria Rigatoni Alla Silana Spice Kit, 2.11 oz

Tutto Calabria

$5.95

If you ever felt you needed a lesson in umami, this packet of seasoning is your ticket.  With earthy dried mushrooms, eggplant, onions, garlic and parsley, this blend will transport you straight to Calabria’s historic mountainous region of La Sila. You’d be hard pressed to find a menu not offering pasta “alla silana” there- a longstanding traditional dish. Simply toss the spices into a pan of simmering water to wake up the rich flavors, add olive oil, your favorite tomato sauce and any short ridged pasta for a simple, delicious meal.

Instructions: (Serves 6 people with 1 pound of pasta) For a serving of 6, add half of the spice kit to a large shallow pan. Add 1 cup of water and cook on medium-high heat, stirring occasionally for 5 minutes or until the water has evaporated. Once the water has completely evaporated, add about 1/3 cup of olive oil and stir frequently until the spices are very fragrant and lightly toasted, but not burnt. Set the heat to medium-low and add a 14.5 ounce can of tomatoes – either pureed, crushed, or whole and lightly crushed in the pan. Allow to simmer on low heat for 15 to 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add cooked pasta, and toss to coat. Top with Parmesan if desired.
