Today we are traveling to the Campania region, in Southern Italy, precisely to the village of Nerano - a small fishing harbor on the Amalfi Coast.
According to the story, the recipe for “Pasta alla Nerano” was created during the 1950s in a restaurant in the village to accommodate the night cravings of a prince who had suddenly shown up, Pupetto di Sirignano.
The owner of the restaurant had almost nothing left in the cupboard apart from some zucchini, oil, salt and pepper, fresh basil and some leftover cheese.
These few simple ingredients turned out to be perfect for a delicious pasta sauce that is now famous all over the world.
Let me show you how to prepare our Spaghetti alla Nerano.
