Buona Domenica con la spaghetatta alla Anita Ekberg

Dear readers and fellow bloggers:

Good afternoon and Happy Sunday. Slowly we are recuperating our battered appetite and our desire to prepare some rich pasta dishes for our family. Today we decided to prepare Teriyaki-style tagliarini in a meaty Dottta suce. First we prepared the San Marzano tomato sauce with onions, peppers, walnuts, garlic and seasoning with a pinch of salt, some black pepper and plenty of orégano. Then we added the sautée ground beef and the previously grilled chorizos thickly sliced (to arouse our lust for la carne even more) Finally we added the grilled round sausage. Voilà!

This dish that we just invented came out so lusciously meaty that it reminded us of the strong sexual arousal that we felt as a child when we saw the provocatively curvaceous Anita Ekberg cavorting with Marcello Mastroianni in the Fontana di Trevi of Rome, a great scene of the 1960 masterpiece of Federico Fellini’s La Dolve Vita. Remember?

In honor of this great filmmaker and these two actors that have made us dream for decades, we dedicate this dish.

Perhaps we should have added a little bit more meat, no? Anyway, dinner is served and we are awaiting your arrival.

Gioia Carnale (carnal pleasure)

Buon appetito!

Stay distant Stay safe. Stay beautiful.
