Fettuccine with chicken livers

Method

  • Heat a little oil in a heavy-bottomed pot and gently sauté the pancetta, red capsicum and garlic until tender, stirring now and again.
  • Add the chilli paste and briefly toss to toast.
  • Then add the chicken livers and toss well to seal.
  • Add a little more oil if needed, together with the tomatoes and seasonings. Briefly cook, being careful not to overcook the livers.
  • At the same time, cook the pasta in a pot of lightly salted, boiling water until al dente. Drain well.
  • Then toss the pasta with the sauce and parsley until well combined.
  • To serve, mound the pasta in individual bowls and top with some grated Pecorino.
