This pasta is quite simple to prepare. First, boil your pasta. For your sauce, saute garlic in olive oil and add speck (or prosciutto), melt your butter in the same pan and cook your apples until fragrant, pour in red wine, season, and toss with the cooked pasta!
This pasta is different than what you’re used to. It’s a truly authentic Italian pasta dish. If you’re looking for something more original and creative than your typical noodles and sauce, this recipe is it.
