This is a recipe that chef Filippa made for us at her restaurant in Messina. Her daughter came up with the idea to wrap the king prawns in spaghetti, they loved how it tasted and have been making it ever since. Of course she lives right on the coast of Sicily and has the best of the fresh catch to cook everyday.
Chef Filippa says in the video that Extra Virgin Olive Oil is the oil that can heat to the highest temperature without becoming toxic and that's why Papa Vince Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO) is perfect for this recipe. We checked out her claims with the OliveOil Times, you can read it here for yourself.
This is a traditional recipe with many of the flavors of Sicily. It makes a tasty & healthy pesto sauce that's ready in less than 30 minutes and can be served with Papa Vince Busiate Pasta.
You can use any nuts in this recipe but Chef Federico likes to use walnuts for their nutritional profile. Walnuts have a higher level of both anti-oxidants and omega 3 fatty acids than any other nut and can help to lower the risk of certain diseases as well as support heart and brain health and healthy aging.
You may think that olive oil is reserved for appetizers and entrees and maybe even drinking that single shot in the morning to boost your health. Who says that Extra Virgin Olive Oil doesn't also make a delicious dessert?
You know the Italians, they put their Extra Virgin Olive Oil on everything and ice cream is no exception. Top Italian Chefs inspired this idea and it's being served at Italian coffee shops and trendy restaurants, it's a must try for all adventurous foodies, so of course we had to give it the taste test!
