Macaroni with sardines, sweet grass and fennel
Maccheroni al Torchio is a very ancient shape of pasta. It takes the name from a specific machine: Torchio, indeed, where you put the dough. It is a wire drawing machine that creates the shape directly from the dough. The machine has been invented at the half of ‘500 and the first shape of pasta has been the one of Maccheroni. The first evidence of this machine comes from Cristofaro di Messisbugo, an ancient chef born in 1549, who talked first about this new machine for making fresh pasta. Maccheroni is a pasta very popular in center and south of Italy, especially in Abruzzo, Molise, Campania, Puglia, Basilicata and Calabria. In this recipe, you can find Maccheroni with a traditional sauce made by sardines and dill. When you eat it, you can taste and smell the genuine mediterranean flavours. The origin of this recipe is very controversial as some authors say it was born in Calabria, while others in Sicily. For sure, you can find it in both regions, and in particular way in villages on the seaside.
