This pasta dish is perfect for the holidays – delicious, fancy, indulgent and perfect for New Year's Eve. Our very own Chef Lorenzo Boni selected Barilla® Al Bronzo pasta because of its beautifully rough texture allowing the pasta to cling perfectly to the sauce.
Lorenzo suggests to keep the creamy sauce fairly “runny” in the pan, so that when you are ready to transfer it to your plate, you can spoon the sauce over the pasta. Finely chopped chives are added last minute to enhance their fragrant aroma.
Don’t forget to share a glass of prosecco with your loved ones while preparing this decadent sauce. Buone Feste and Buon Appetito!
