I just got off the phone with Donald Trump. He told me that this recipe is going to be Yuge. Incredible. All others are losers by comparison. He has a lot of respect for this recipe.
And he’d better, because it hails from Sicily and not even the Donald messes with Palermo.
In Sicily, La Bella Sicilia, these ingredients are used in hundreds of ways. Broccoli shows up often (though not nearly as often as melanzana (eggplant)). Pine nuts and raisins harken back to the days of Roman agrodolce — bittersweet. (I’ve never liked raisins, so I skipped them.)
Yuge, I tell you. Awesome. I promise you. Let’s make pasta great again!
