Orecchiette alle Cime di Rapa

Bike TripOn the 11th of November, in Italy, San Martino day is celebrated. In commemoration of the holiday, many families hold a big party to officially welcome the fall season. The festivities are accompanied by traditional dishes and samples of vino novello, the new wine of the year. The following orecchiette alle cime di rapa recipe is a classic main course on San Martino day and it comes strait to us from Puglia. For those of you who have been on one of our Puglia Biking Tours, it might seem familiar. It’s the recipe that VBT Trip Leader, Debra’s Grandmother uses. Buon appetito!
