Here we are at the 4th episode of #RicetteExcelsior : our section dedicated to the dishes and recipes of our chef Fabrizio Reffo.
Today the chef offers us one of the most loved dishes by Italians … the tagliatelle !
Are you ready? Let’s start!

 

INGREDIENTS:

  • Fresh tagliatelle (We used 1 kg. of re-milled durum wheat semolina flour, 10 eggs and chopped basil)
  • Fresh scampi
  • Cognac or Brandy
  • Fresh cream
  • Poached garlic
  • Chopped parsley
  • Sweet curry
  • Courgettes
  • Coarse salt
  • Salt & pepper
  • Black pepper

 

RECIPE:

In a non-stick pan we put olive oil, garlic and courgettes cut in sticks.
The fire must be lively to leave crispy our courgettes.
When they are ready, leave them warm for few minutes.

In another pan, put olive oil, garlic and let it warm up well.
Remove the garlic and put the prawn tails that have already been shelled (leaving only the tail), go up and flambé.
