It is in fact a very tasty recipe, perfect both for Sundays with the family and for evenings with friends. In fact, we know how important it is to have tasty first courses in the repertoire, but at the same simple to show off on the most disparate occasions.

How to prepare the recipe for pasta alla finanziera

  1. First, soak the dried mushrooms in warm water.
  2. Then clean the chicken livers and gizzards (on the market they are usually already clean), and chop them coarsely with a knife.
  3. Chop the onion and carrot not too finely and brown them in a pan with the butter.
  4. Add the offal and after two minutes deglaze with the white wine.
  5. Cook for 30 minutes, adding a ladle of chicken broth if necessary. If you want you can prepare this dressing in red by adding two peeled tomatoes crushed with a fork. Season with salt and keep warm.
  6. Cook the pasta in abundant salted water for the time indicated on the package. You can use both fresh and dried tagliatelle.
  7. Drain and toss in a pan over high heat with the sauce, then spread over the plates, completing with a sprinkling of grated Parmesan cheese.
