Storm of giant meatballs on the set of “Tous en cuisine”! Live on M6, chef Lignac prepared one of the iconic dishes from across the Atlantic. Immediate boarding.
Spaghetti with meatballs, or “meatball spaghetti”, are among the dishes that are traditionally found in American series. If we love them, we always dread eating them in a restaurant for fear of staining our clothes … With this chef’s recipe, there is no question of sacrificing gluttony for practicality. For this complete, gourmet and tasty dish, Cyril Lignac uses good butcher’s chipolatas, fresh basil and real Parmigiano Reggiano. So many flavors can only create a wonderful dish, which will delight young and old alike. For cooking pasta, we can never say it enough: plenty of water, 1 teaspoon of salt per liter of water, never oil and above all, cooking al dente to finish cooking the pasta in the sauce . As with its carbonara pasta (without cream like the Italians do), this final step allows you to serve hot spaghetti, generously soaked in sauce and not sticky. Don’t skimp on the parmesan, freshly grated on the pan, for even more indulgence.
