    Recipe of Calabria. We are in southern Italy. A recipe that my mother gave me and that I have taken over the tradition. Calabria is known for its natural beauty, but also for the use of chili peppers, very spicy in the area. This recipe is therefore a little spicy. Warning to those who do not like. The recipe is simple.


    • 320 grams of pasta such as "penne"
    • 500 grams of cauliflower,
    • 150 grams of cured bacon (bacon cured type)
    • 100 grams of cherry tomatoes,
    • 1 tablespoon salt to cook pasta,
    • a little hot pepper,
    • 6 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil,
    • 1 clove garlic, chopped
    • 100 grams of real cheese "pecorino" crumbs.


    1. Take a large frying pan and put the extra virgin olive oil, chopped garlic, chili pepper and the bacon cheese cut into small pieces.
    2. Cook over low heat for about 5 minutes.
    3. Cut cherry tomatoes into pieces and put it in a pan.
    4. We cook for another 10 minutes over low heat.
    5. We have the fire, a large pot with water, add a tablespoon of salt.
    6. As soon as the water boils, put the cauliflower cut into large pieces.
    7. Cook for 15 minutes.
    8. In the same pan add the pasta and cook for minutes written on the packaging.
    9. We remove all the water and put the pasta and cauliflower pieces in the pan.
    10. Season well, using low heat and stirring constantly, for 2 minutes.
