Sometimes we all need a break from the usual rotation. If you love spice it is easy to change-up your normal pasta. Spice up your pasta!
Like most salamis and sausages, the flavorings in soppressata depend on the recipe used to produce it. Some versions are slightly sweet and savory, with the inclusion of cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves, along with black pepper and coriander. Spicier types are seasoned with garlic, hot pepper such as cayenne and various Italian spices such as fennel, oregano and basil. The spicier blend is more like the popular salami known as pepperoni. The spicier style is what I used to spice up our pasta one night.
Hopefully this idea will give you a little something special for your next pasta dinner. Who knows it may even become tradition…
