This is a super elegant and effortless dish. My children squeal with delight when they see it on the dining table. What more can you ask for?
To stage this meal, ideally boil the water in a pentola. If a pentola is not available, boil the pasta for the first serving (90 grams of pasta per person) and use a slotted spoon to remove the pasta from the water. Keep the pasta water heated in a covered pan until the next serving and repeat.
