Classic situation with your favorite Italian: Which pasta should it be? Pasta amatriciana, cacio e pepe or spaghetti carbonara? If you can't decide, we offer help: Pasta alla zozzona. It combines all three classics - with salsiccia on top. Dirty noodles, as they are translated, came about at a time when the Catholic Church called for fasting several times a year. When eating was allowed again, the chefs no longer bothered about recipes. Actually a sin for Italians, but when the stomach growls, they just cook what the stomach demands.
