Pasta with bell cream is an easy dish. Most of the outcome depends on the quality of the pepper.Regarding the cheese, one can add ricotta. Two to three spoons. This enhances the creaminess.The chili pepper is better served at the table. Use short pasta. The cream should coat your pasta. We advice a nice Sicilian wine for this dish. Finimondo by Cantine Carlo Pelligrino. A blend that matches the creaminess and pepper in general.
