Garibaldi style pasta

In honor of Giuseppe Garibaldi here is the pasta alla garibaldina: a rich and tasty first course with cream, tomato, prawns and chilli pepper.

Pasta alla garibaldina is a traditional Italian dish that takes its name from Giuseppe Garibaldi, a leading figure of the Italian Risorgimento, a national hero known for his role in the struggle for the unification of Italy.

The recipe for this first course was created in honor of Garibaldi, who died on June 2 , 1882, many years before the establishment of the Italian Republic. The dish combines ingredients such as pasta (usually penne is used), tomato puree, shrimp and chilli pepper to create a tasty and creamy sauce, reminiscent of Italian flavours .
