Violet spaghetti! (-50 weeks)


Recipe 103: This is my favorite dish ever!!!!! It’s a bit long but it’s really the most special recipe you can find! you need to try it!… and of course the special dish needs a special occasion, and my birthday was the right one!

So are you ready with the blueberries for some violet spaghetti???

Here are the ingredients for 10 people: 300gr of speck (you can find it in Carluccio’s), 1kg spaghetti, 350ml. single cream, 500gr blueberries, 100gr. Parmesan, 1 onion, 150gr butter, 1 full glass of white wine (or even a bit more) and salt.

Cut the onion in little pieces and cook it in a sauce pan with some water. The onion needs to become almost creamy. At that point you can add the butter and the speck cut in really little squares… i used a pair of scissors for this. Now you just need to wait and keep on mixing everything on a low fire.

Then add some of the wine and cover the saucepan until the wine is all evaporated. Repeat the same until the end of all the wine. At this point you can add the blueberries exactly as they are and you will just need to mix a bit and wait again. Use always a very low fire.

Little  by little the berries will loose their water and they will dissolve creating a nice violet sauce. You won’t need to add anything else except some salt if you think is necessary, you will just need to wait and mix to don’t make the sauce stick to the pan.

When the sauce will be ready add half of the single cream and mix again, always on a low fire.

In the same time you can put the spaghetti in hot salty water and you can wait for them to be cooked. Be careful to don’t leave them to cook to much or your pasta will be plastic.

When the spaghetti are almost ready put the rest of the cream in the sauce, mix and then add the same spaghetti. Could be better to do all this is a pan directly on the fire, but if teh quantity of spaghetti and sauce is too much, just do it in teh same saucepan. It will be easier.

You can now serve the violet spaghetti with a good spoon of Parmesan!

Buon appetito!
