 Recipe: Tagliolini with the Bomb of Gradara

The "Tagliolini con la Bomba" are the first typical dish of the Marche village of Gradara, the village of Paolo and Francesca, in province of Pesaro e Urbino. The name of effect can be misleading because, if the term "bomb" makes one think of the war and the turbulent past of Gradara and its fortress, witness of a hundred battles distriubite in different ages, the Tagliolini with the Bomb represent instead a "peaceful" dish, still prepared today with simple and "poor" ingredients by the skilled hands of grandmothers and great-grandmothers of Gradara. Tagliolini with Bomba, simple tagliolini cooked in water and salt and seasoned with lard and onion sautéed with a pinch of pepper, are also described in Delio Bischi's book, La cultura Contadina in the three valleys. Conca, Foglia and Metaturo. A specialty of the peasant tradition of the Marche, whose curious name derives from the preparation method. That's how...

Ingredients

  • q.s. pepper
  • 100 grams of lard
  • 50 gr pecorino
  • q.s. parsley
  • 5 sheets of basil
  • 1 dl of meat broth
  • q.s. extravirgin olive oil
  • q.s. salt
  • 1 onion
  • 320 gr egg pasta

Method

Stir-fry with a little oil, onion and lard or fatty bacon. Meanwhile, cook the tagliolini in water and salt, then drain the excess water, leaving the dish a bit brothy. Pour the fried lard and onion into the pan, adding some pepper. The effect of the hot oil poured into the water causes a large quantity of steam, for this reason they are called "Tagliolini con la Bomba"!
