Fettuccine Pasta with Speck and Radicchio Sauce

Today, we will prepare together a pasta recipe using two flavourful ingredients that are typical of the Winter season: Radicchio and Speck.

Radicchio is a type of chicory, a flavorful and versatile fall vegetable. The leaves are a little bitter with a crisp crunch. Speck is a pork-product very similar to prosciutto but the meat is smoked as a final step in the curing process.

The combination of “radicchio and speck” is a classic Italian winter recipe. It has a delicious bitter aftertaste and the crunchy speck strips give an intense boost of taste to the sauce. For my recipe, I used Fettucina pasta because is a perfect cradle for the sauce and is one of my favourite shapes for a Sunday Meal!
