Casareccia Pollo Piccante Pasta Recipe



Casareccia is a traditional short pasta, loosely rolled lengthways and slightly twisted. The twisted shape makes them great for holding sauce, whether it’s simple pesto or chunky sauce. Here we have our spicy harissa chicken that is a Zizzi customer favourite in our restaurants!
