Stanley Tucci has given us a lot over the years, but today we can find him on Searching for Italy, poking his perfectly bald head into restaurants and diving into his Italian culture, one region at a time.
During his travels, the man eats a lot of pasta. An enviable amount of pasta. And while watching him eat and say things like "oh that's good" is satisfying, it would be a lot more satisfying if you could actually taste what's on his plate.
To make that happen, Tucci partnered with S. Pellegrino and World Chef, the meal kit service and culinary content hub, to help you create one of his favorite holiday meals—Gnocchetti con Salsiccia e Broccolini. It's available now, so pick up a few kits for holiday dinners, or give one to everyone on your gift list. Pasta makes a great stocking stuffer.
The kit includes everything you need to make the dish, with products sourced from Italy and fresh, seasonal ingredients. We're talking gnocchetti sardi (Sardinian pasta), crumbled salsiccia (Italian pork sausage), fresh broccolini and fennel, Pecorino Romano, extra virgin olive oil, vino bianco chicken stock and Calabrian chili flakes.
All the prep work has been done for you, so you can plate this meal in about 20 minutes. You can also visit the World Chef website to watch chef and pasta wizard Liz Hong of Osteria Mozza whip up this same dish.
"We have a saying in my family that there is always room for pasta, and the holidays are no exception," said Tucci. He calls Gnocchetti con Salsiccia e Broccolini the perfect dish to share with loved ones this holiday season.
On that note, the kit serves four to six people, so feel free to invite some friends and family over for dinner. Otherwise, you'll have to eat all four to six servings by yourself.
Either way, you've got an enjoyable evening ahead.
