Have you been to the opera? Did they have surtitles? Have you read the story line of an opera? Or the libretto? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then answer the next question. Did the words strike you as silly?

They did for me - in many operas at least. Sublime music, glorious singing - but singing about something inane in an improbable story.

Well the name of this dish reminds me of opera. Spaghetti al pangrattato sounds so much sexier than wheat strands with fried breadcrumbs.

Like a lot of Italian pasta dishes, this is really simple, but delicious. Basically breadcrumbs (home made from sour dough) shallow fried until golden, then mixed with cooked spaghetti, extra virgin olive, a little chilli, saltand garlic. That's it.
