Carciuga Artichoke & Anchovy Pasta Sauce

Carciuga Artichoke & Anchovy Pasta Sauce

Spread the artichoke.

Located between Milan and Torino in northern Italy, Il Mongetto specializes in the simple, direct flavors of the region. This artichoke sauce is the perfect example. Made with hand-trimmed artichokes, anchovies for a briny, umami kick, and a smidge of extra virgin olive oil, vinegar, and pepper, the flavors marry perfectly with pasta. 

Mix some spoonfuls of carciuga—pronounced car-CHOO-gah, with car- for carciofo (Italian for artichoke) and -ciuga for acciuga (Italian for anchovy)—with a drizzle of good olive oil to turn ordinary pasta night into a culinary trek through the Italian countryside. This sauce is just like that.

"Carciuga is my favorite product of yours, I get it every chance I can. Great on just about anything or even just with a spoon right out of the jar. I've added it to deviled eggs, put it in my salad dressing, added it to guacamole, baked potato/potato salad. It is also a great stocking stuffer (which I've been hinted to get more of). I love it!"
