Pasta con Sugo di Peposo – Pasta with “Peposo” sauce (made with “leftovers”)

Rather than a recipe this is again another very good and easy re-use of the “leftovers“, while the main recipe for the “Peposo” you can find it in the previous post 🙂 (and sincerely these are not leftovers, when I prepare this kind of recipes I often cook something more to be able to prepare also this kind of delicious pasta 😀 )

All you need to do is to take the remaining Peposo, break the meat into small pieces (it’s very easy and you don’t need a knife to do it if your Peposo was well done and very tender, it will fall apart) and heat it up gently in a pan, adding just a tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil on the bottom and if the remaining Peposo sauce is not enough you can add a little bit of tomato sauce. I suggest also to remove most of the peppercorns in the Peposo, they are ok in the main dish but in the pasta personally I prefer to remove them.

Look at this sauce, it’s just so inviting! You can also deep some bread while the pasta is boiling 😛peposo_pasta_1

Then when the pasta is cooked drain it and put it in the pan with the sauce, mix well together, then serve it and sprinkle some freshly grated Parmigiano Reggiano on it (I used Pecorino since I had it, that’s also good).

Easy, fast and veeery tasty! 🙂

PS: for the pasta I suggest to choose types like rigatoni, mezzi paccheri, candele, ziti, penne or other similar types.

    1. Thank you and welcome here 🙂 You mean an easy Italian recipe to do? Well, I think that many Italian recipes are not too complicated but often they require patience and time, and attention to details 🙂 So I don’t know what could be a first suggestion, it depends also what you like.
      If you click on my menu above you can select the recipe between appetizers, first courses (pasta or risotto recipes, mainly) and second courses (about what in most of countries are called “main courses”).
      If you have questions just ask! 🙂

      2. I didn’t make yet any post about pizza, sure I’ll do in the future, but to make a really good pizza it’s not the easiest thing and there are many details to take care.
        For sure some basic pasta recipes are easier to begin with Italian food 🙂
