Mastroianni and his favorite: Pasta and Bean dish

Pasta e fagioli is one of the typical dishes of Italian cuisine, and we can enjoy regional and even local variations. Because of this popularity, you can not say with certainty what is the origin of the dish. The Veneto and Tuscany are two regions more than others have made a pasta and bean dish.

I Soliti Ignoti

I Soliti Ignoti

The dish has starred in several films, such as when Marcello Mastroianni, lover of pasta and beans, in movie “I soliti ignoti” with Vittorio Gassman, Toto’ and Claudia Cardinale stop at Capannelle, while it’s going on the robbery of the century,to taste a plate of pasta and beans.

Someone argue that the recipe for pasta and beans was born in the taverns of ancient Rome, cheap dish, tasty and nutritious, and therefore suitable to feed the guests. Others argue that pasta and beans was the dish of the farmers who provide only products of their own backyard, perhaps enriching the flavor with pork rinds.



The pasta and beans is excellent enjoyed with red wines of good body and good acidity, in particular, are recommended Rosso di Montepulciano, Chianti Rufinaor a Cabernet Franc of Grave del Friuli.



Mastroianni e la sua preferita: Pasta e Fagioli

Pasta e fagioli è uno dei piatti tipici della cucina italiana, e ne possiamo gustare diverse varianti regionali e anche locali. A causa di questa popolarità, non è possibile dire con certezza quale sia l’origine del piatto. Il Veneto e Toscana sono due regioni che più delle altre hanno fatto della pasta e fagioli un piatto tipico.

I Soliti Ignoti

Il piatto è protagonista in alcuni film, come quando Marcello Mastroianni, amante della pasta e fagioli, nel film “I soliti ignoti” con Vittorio Gassman, Toto’ e Claudia Cardinale si ferma alle Capannelle, mentre e’ in atto la rapina del secolo, per poter assaggiare un piatto di pasta e fagioli.

C’è chi sostiene che la ricetta della pasta e fagioli nasce nelle locande dell’antica Roma, piatto economico, gustoso e nutriente, e quindi adatto a sfamare i clienti delle locande. Altri invece sostengono che la pasta e fagioli è stato il piatto tipico dei contadini che avevano a disposizione solo i prodotti del proprio orticello, magari arricchendo il sapore con cotiche di maiale.



La pasta e fagioli si accompagna molto bene con i vini rossi di buon corpo e buona acidità, in particolare sono consigliati il Rosso di Montepulciano, il Chianti Rufina o un Cabernet Franc delle Grave del Friuli.
