Notes about this recipe

  • Breadcrumbs on February 24, 2013

    p. 246 The Italian name for this dish is Maccheroni all’Agro and Agro means “sour” – indeed this dish makes you pucker with delight! The bite of the wine, lemon juice and zest is nicely countered by the richness of the butter and cream. The egg-based Maccheroni alla Chiatarra also adds a richness that works beautifully with the zesty lemon infused cream. This is an unusual and special dish that I look forward to enjoying again. I think it would be wonderful with some fresh basil as well.
