Pasta Spezzatino is a classic Italian recipe, named after the small cubes of beef. That's what 'spezzatino' means, 'little cubes of meat'. The meat is gently cooked in a rich tomato sauce and served on top of pasta. Traditional recipes add in mushrooms & carrots but my mom & I love garden peas so that's what we use in our family and it's called 'Pasta Spezzatino e piselli'. My mom loves this recipe and she's already looking forward to sharing her 'Spezzatino con Patate' recipe with you. It's definitely cooking season in the Papa Vince kitchen.
We love this recipe because it contains our favorite pasta with a healthy, seasonal vegetable that is perfect for Fall. We add in lots of raw garlic which certainly adds to the flavor of the dish but it also boosts your immune system which is so important during the change of seasons.
