2 Fantastic Firsts, Chef Alfonso Caputo, Taverna del Capitano, Marina del Cantone (Na)



My love affair  with pasta lunga is not a secret.  I confessed it years ago.  So that is why my heart skipped a beat or two when I got a chance to try these two dishes recently at Taverna del Capitano.  Chef Alfonso Caputo sent out this dish first -


an assaggino/ taste of spaghetti with zucchini and fresh shrimp.



Then a surprise.  A dry pasta that the chef made himself using coffee!


He placed it gingerly on top of a flavorful tomato sauce with black olives and capers.  A swirl of ricotta cheese on top...




Fantastic.
