"Years ago I had an Antonio Carluccio recipe for cart-drivers' spaghetti," writes Ann James from Walsham le Willows, Suffolk. "It became a favourite when I had really hungry people to feed, but now I have mislaid it. Please help!" The recipe is from Antonio's Complete Mushroom Book (Quadrille; £25) and he was happy to pass it on to us. This is said to have been devised by Italian cart drivers transporting goods from the provinces to Rome. They wanted to cook something simple and delicious using only dried or preserved ingredients that were easy for them to carry on their long journey. This version of the recipe includes fresh tomatoes but most of the other ingredients are store-cupboard or fridge staples.
This recipe was first published in September 2004.
