Snapshot of the Day- Il Mio Aglio, Olio, e Peperoncino, Chef Francesco Russo, Il Golfo Ristorante, (Sa)

There are some pasta dishes that are simply classics. One is spaghetti aglio, olio e peponcino, spaghetti with garlic extra virgin olive oil, and red chili pepper.  There are some twists on this plate of spaghetti madness and I recently had the chance to try Chef Francesco Russo's version .  Russo, executive chef of Il Golfo Restaurant located in  Hotel Raito, a 5 star luxury hotel located at the doorstep of the Amalfi Coast.  This dish  has been a staple on his menu for a few seasons. Pretty obvious as to why.  Russo, a chef who embraces the products of the territory,  decided to add a star to this dish. And that star is an anchovy- in two versions- the precious anchovy fish sauce and fresh anchovies as well.  A light sprinkling of taralli crumbs complete the dish.
His Aglio, Olio, e Peperoncino.
Spaghetti madness.

Chef Russo's recipe for this dish and others can be found here on his blog,.
