Fuss Free Sauce – Spaghetti alla Carrettiera

A good pasta sauce is not always the result of slaving over a hot stove. Spaghetti alla Carrettiera uses a few basic, raw ingredients which result in a juicy and flavoursome meal.

This quick, no fuss dish is the sort of thing you’d find at road stops, hence the name ‘Carrettiera’ – Cart-Driver.

My father makes a version called Crudaiolo where cubed mozzarella and thin slices of celery are used instead of anchovy fillets.

About NazarBlue

Growing up with Southern Italian roots, Turkish best friends and Arabic and Greek speaking neighbours, life was lived around abundant tables in warm kitchens. A love for food and feeding was inevitable. It showed me how all people are the same regardless of language and borders – Una Faccia Una Razza! When I became engaged to a Saracen from Istanbul, his relatives not only welcomed me into their family but welcomed me into their kitchen. For me, food is love. Food personifies the people who you hold dearest and speaks of origins and affections. To cook is to create edible offerings of love. NazarBlue embraces food, culture & photography. But by no means the regular stuff you'll find littering the Mediterranean tourist trail. No, no! I cook food with stories behind each dish. I photograph simple things, but try to emphasis natural beauty in a moment or in a scene. And when I travel I live with the locals for an authentic experience. I adore the pockets of culture from the Mediterranean and beyond in this great city, London, and write about the authentic eateries and events I stumble upon, often by chance. I have also uploaded some flash fiction, for no particular reason other than I love a good story.
