Strozzapreti alla salsiccia at Sotto Sotto

Available at Sotto Sotto Restaurant !
Modern society generally frowns on choking spiritual advisors, but don’t hold that against Sotto Sotto chef/owner Ricardo Ullio’s “priest strangler” pasta. Named after greedy priests who allegedly gobbled this dish so indiscriminately they choked to death, the Northern Italian specialty comes bathed in a bold-looking tomato and meat sauce fortified with garlic, white wine, sage, and a touch of cream. Bits of ground sausage that cling to each scroll-like twist of hand-rolled pasta add a subtle sweetness that lingers on the palate after each bite. $17.
