Tagliatelle Fruits of Adriatic Preparation
Clean the cuttlefish and cut it on annulet-like pieces. Take a larger frying pan and fill its bottom with olive oil. Put on slight flame and add cuttlefish with shrimp tails. Wait for a few minutes for the ingredients to soften.
After the first part of preparing tagliatelle fruits of Adriatic is finished, add thoroughly minced garlic. Insert tomato juice and leave for a few minutes to simmer. Once a portion of juice evaporates and thickens, add thyme, salt and pepper.
The pasta should be cooked separately in the pot of boiling water, slightly salted and having a few drops of olive oil. Once they receive “al dente” thickness, mix them with ingredients from the frying pan. Once served on a plate, grate some cheese on top for the final touch.
If possible, use cuttlefish which descends from Adriatic Sea, as it is a special species, highly regarded by chefs of the world. Also note that this recipe can go well with oysters and shellfish.
