Recipe By: Marco G (https://cookbuzz.com/kitchen/413)
Serves 2 Prep: 5 min Cook: 12 min

Ingredients

Tinned herrings (in tomato sauce) 1
Tinned tomatoes (small) 1
Celery 2
Onion 1/2
Capers 2 tbsp
Black olives 20
Pepper as required
Garlic 2 cloves
Dried chilli 1
Olive oil 2 tbsp
Spaghetti 200g
Salt as required

Method

1
Start boiling the pasta. As the pasta water will be part of the sauce, use 1-1.5% salt to the amount of hot water (such as 10-15g salt in 1 litre water).
2
The celery is optional, but if you use it, cut it diagonally. Chop the onion and crush the garlic. Chop up the olives.
3
Put the olive oil in a large frying pan and add the garlic. Then add the onions and celery and fry for 2 minutes on high heat.
4
Add the de-seeded chilli and stir fry. Add 3 ladles of pasta water and shake the pan to emulsify.
5
Add the tomatoes, herrings, capers and olives and cook without stirring to reduce the sauce.
6
When the pasta is ready, add to the frying pan and stir for 1 minute.
7
Sprinkle with some grated parmigiano reggiano cheese and finely chopped parsley if you like.

Osso Buco, which translates as “hole of bone” is pure meaty awesomeness. Placing on a bed of risotto or polenta pays tribute to Osso Buco’s roots and takes this Italian comfort food to another level. Traditionally, Osso Buco is made with veal but see how I make Beef Osso Buco, a carnivorous wreath.

Risotto doesn't always have to be the star of a dinner menu, it can also serve as a great bed for another dish which it does in episode 106 of POV Italian Cooking where I make a simple Beef Tomato Risotto.

It can be difficult to make a perfect hard-boiled egg that has a creamy yolk and a tender white. Overcooking a hard-boiled egg, which is easy to do, results in a chalky and sometimes greenish yolk, a rubbery egg white and a slightly sulfuric taste. In this video I demonstrate how I use my sous vide to get the perfect hard-boiled egg.
