Natural Bread Crumb Topping ... Grandma's Style!

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!

We met Teresa in Messina who invited us into her beautiful Italian home & showed us how to make some of her favorite family recipes.  This Linguine recipe is one that she started making just to get creative in the kitchen.  The combination of the anchovies and the omega 9 fatty acids in the Extra Virgin Olive Oil make this a health boosting recipe.  If you're concerned about the linguine and want a more nutritious option, why not use Papa Vince Tumminia Pasta which is made with ancient grain and contains 6 times more fiber than regular pasta.
