Lockdown and Cavatelli

Apex Office Centers and other small things can make a difference

One of the side effects of this virus situation is that many people are discovering new things. My major one has been Cavatelli.

From Wikipedia:

Many varieties and local names of Cavatelli exist, including orecchie di prete (priest’s ears).[5] In Apulia a number of varieties of Cavatelli have specific names including pizzicarieddi.[5] A particular variety of Cavatelli is typical of the area of Teggiano in Campania, where they are referred to as Parmatieddi (or Palmatielli). Parmatieddi are larger than Cavatelli and flat-shaped. They are obtained by rolling a stick dough with three fingers of one hand, instead of with a single finger as done for the common Cavatelli. Parmatieddi are usually served as first course on Palm Sunday and their shape similar to that of a tree leaf, would like to recall that of palm branches the crowd scattered in front of Jesus when he entered into Jerusalem.’

The Cavatelli I have been getting has ricotta cheese added to the pasta dough and then cooked with littleneck clams, italian sausage, crushed tomatoes, calabrian chile, garlic and basil. I am presently in New Mexico and the nearest restaurant, Arroyo Vino, makes this dish every week.

Tonight is the night I get it. Its the best night of the week!
