In times gone by, cheese was expensive in Sicily and so the people found a very creative way to replace the cheese in their pasta, by using natural bread crumbs.

This may be a new concept for us who are used to cheese but give the recipe a try, it's absolutely delicious!

This Recipe is also super simple and it will make you a star in the kitchen.

I am going to show you step-by-step how to make your own natural bread crumbs from scratch, it's the Sicilian way!
