CNN has listed 30 Italian dishes that anyone should try at least once in their life. The listing has photos and a description of the dish as a title.
It is an authentic journey through the boot through its most famous dishes. From the pizza to the timbale, passing through the culurgiones and the trofie with pesto. 4 dishes are strictly Neapolitan. Others such as ice cream, lasagna and parmesan, despite having become the prerogative of the entire South, claim their Roman origin in the case of lasagna and Sicilian in that of parmesan.
CNN, among the 30 dishes 4 are Neapolitan:
– Pizza. CNN invites you to try the real Italian pizza in Naples, his hometown. Remember that the traditional ingredients are tomato, extra virgin olive oil, basil and mozzarella.
– Caprese salad. A simple dish made from slices of tomato and mozzarella, seasoned with a tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil, salt, pepper and fresh basil leaves. The birthplace of this recipe is the island of Capri.
– Linguini allo Scoglio. “Linguine entwined with squid, clams, mussels, king prawns and prawns and seasoned with chilli, parsley, tomatoes and a splash of white wine“. As CNN explains, “the original recipe is Neapolitan but it has spread to most southern cities. In Rome it is also served wrapped in aluminum foil.“
– Sfogliatella. Typical sweet of Naples, CNN explains that there are two versions: the “curly” sfogliatella stuffed with sweet ricotta and with crispy layers of puff pastry; and the “shortcrust pastry”, round and wrapped in shortcrust pastry.
