Fettuccine alla papalina recipe by of 11-02-2011 [Updated on 25-09-2017]
The fettuccine alla papalina are a typical Lazio first course that was born in the 1930s as a variant of the more famous carbonara pasta. In this version the pancetta was replaced with ham and the pecorino with parmesan, the peas instead were added only later to the recipe. The fettuccine alla papalina are ideal to prepare as a first course on Sunday, in my house they were appreciated by everyone :)
Happy Friday everyone and the next recipe
