Spaghetti all’assassina ( killer spaghetti ), is a signature dish from Bari, Puglia.Flavia SpaghettiABC
It becomes à la mode during the 70s.
This dish is so popular that in Bari even exists a “Spaghetti all’assassina Accademy”, with members that respect religiously the way this pasta is made.
The technique behind is called “risottatura“, so the pasta is not boiled but is cooked directly in the pan, like a risotto, adding the liquid (in this case the tomato sauce) little by little, until it is absorbed and the pasta is cooked.
The pasta cooks high heat, until it caramelizes and scorches: spaghetti must be crunchy but not burnt! And they are really spicy to, with a lot of peperoncino.
So try the recipe that follows here and become an honorary barese.
Enjoy this Spaghetti dish with a glass of Nero di Troia Masseria Supreno Red Wine. You will be conquered by the intense ruby red color, the intense berry fruit aroma and the well balanced structure.
