    What Makes It Awesome

    Did you know one of Stanley Tucci's favourite pasta dishes is Spaghetti Alla Nerano? Well, here's how you can make it at home and plate it in a fancy bowl that you can buy on LBB. Oh yes, we're cool that way. In the video above, the bowl used in from this Delhi-based potter, A Clay Story. Check out the brand here

    Here's the recipe that's based on Stanley Tucci's show Searching For Italy: 

    - Zucchini (one whole zucchini sliced thin)
    - Spaghetti (for one person)
    - Provolone cheese/Parmesan
    - Olive oil (50 ml)
    - Butter (I used salted)
    - Pasta water 
    - Basil leaves
    - Pepper
    - Salt

    - In the show, the zucchini slices are fried in sunflower oil but I fried mine in olive oil. Fry them till they are brown and then keep them aside preferably on a paper towel to soak up any excess oil. 

    - In a pan heat some olive oil and toss in the fried zucchini and toss it around for a bit before adding the cooked spaghetti.

    - Toss it around before adding grated provolone or parmesan ( I think I added around 30g) and some of that pasta water. Keep tossing so that it doesn’t stick on the bottom of the pan.

    - When you get that nice cheesy aroma, add in some butter, another 30g of the cheese and some pasta water. Toss it well.

    - You need to serve it hot to get that creaminess intact. Top it off with some freshly ground pepper, torn basil leaves, and some provolone cheese. Enjoy it hot.
