ITALIAN PASTA RECIPE

Mimmo di Raffele’s Linguine alla Colatura di Alici

This quick, zesty dish perfectly captures the salty summer breeze we enjoy on the terrace at Caruso, A Belmond Hotel, Amalfi Coast. A modern take on a traditional recipe, Chef Mimmo di Raffele's version uses Colatura di alici, a unique fish sauce from nearby Cetara. Tossed with fresh anchovies and lemon zest, this Italian pasta recipe is an absolute must for bright, fragrant summer lunches.
