Tony Soprano's Own Neapolitan Ragų (page 2 of 2) Home
How my friend Pasquale came to eat my Maccheroni al ragų 'like in Napoli' and fix my media room so that I could watch the Sopranos.
Fry in a saucepan until the onion has lost its water and the bacon rendered its fat.
You will obtain a beige fatty puddle with the most delicate porky smell.
Add your ragų with a ladle. Only use ragų you will eat tonight.
Add some of the pasta cooking water to the ragų to thin it down a bit and mix
Spoon the ragų lardiato ('baconed meat sauce') over the hot pasta...
... sprinkle with grated Parmesan or Caciocavallo and decorate with a basil leaf.
Pascuale was happy and I managed to have my media room fixed in 2 days instead of 2 weeks, thanks to the timeless ragų napoletano.
The Sopranos is a mafia fiction invented by psycholanalyed screenwriters with jewish mothers to project their fantasies. But they did a fair amount of gastronomic research into the Neapolitan origins of their characters who would very much enjoy this ragų napoletano. But who would have them for dinner?.
