Bowtie Pasta with Mushroom Sauce
Cicatelli is a southern dialect word for cavatelli, little caves. This shaped pasta is perfect for capturing thick sauces. When I watched Antonietta Furgone make it in Italy, I knew I was in the presence of a true artist in the kitchen.
I was so delighted to see this recipe for cicatelli! It has been a traditional family favorite for generations. AND my grandmother’s name was Antonietta! My Mom told her mother when I was baptized “Annette” that my name was the “Medicana” version of Antonietta. My grandmother was satisfied that at least one grandchild would bear her name. (Actually, I was named after one of the Dion quintuplets from Canada.) Thanks for this recipe and the joy you bring through the Italian heritage in your cooking.
