La Molisana’s “Carbonara” of sea food

For those who love the sea and want to savor the flavors and scents, La Molisana presents the perfect recipe for summer evenings. The chefs “Chef in Camicia” have reworked the classic carbonara creating a first course with a marine flavor, fun and colorful: the “Carbonara” of the sea.

Long pasta and egg base are here enriched with seafood ingredients, for a creamy and tasty dish starring the Spaghetto Quadrato La Molisana: the workhorse of the Campobasso pasta factory, the Spaghetto Quadrato® La Molisana was born from the careful study of the Abruzzo-Molise regional tradition of homemade pasta. Believing deeply in the potential of spaghetto alla chitarra, produced with a special tool that looks almost like a guitar or a zither, La Molisana decided to promote it beyond regional borders by creating Spaghetto Quadrato®, today one of the most popular pasta shapes among Italians. Rough, full-bodied, tenacious, it practically never shakes and captures the sauce on all four sides. In this dish it is combined with the excellence of the sea: from Swordfish to Salmon, from Tuna to Bottarga and Caviar.
