If you've noticed, Rachael has been using 'nduja to add spice to her pasta recipes lately — like her Pumpkin Spice Pasta.
No idea what 'nduja is? No worries. Rach explains & even reveals which types she buys.
What is 'nduja?
'Nduja, or Italian sausage paste, is "Calabrian in origin, from the southern part of Italy," Rachael explains. "It's literally a thick paste and it is made of pork product." (And it's spicy!) "You can use domestic or imported 'nduja — it's more and more readily available."
What 'nduja does Rachael use?
Is there a vegetarian substitute for 'nduja?
Rach says vegetarians can substitute Calabrian chili paste for the same effect. "Use a couple of tablespoons, tops."
