Are you ready to go back to the Isola di Capri for a new pasta adventure? Please find the second dish you will see almost everywhere in good restaurants : the Aumm-aumm. Ironically, it means hidden in Napoli. Made with Provolone cheese from Campanie (an aged hard cheese), it has a distinctive flavor sweetened by the aubergines. As usual when you fry them, always put the aubergines to sweat for 30 minutes before. Believe me, it won't be oily in the pan and it won't stick to the pasta, a gem in cooking! The best I have tasted was at the ristorante Villa Brunella in front of the magnificent Marina Piccoli adorned by a beautiful sunset, a night to remember... 

Wine pairing : Alcamo Bianco (White) from Sicily.

A quick glance in your kitchen…
