Gluten free spaghetti with breadcrumbs

Written by Veronica Lavenia

Gluten free spaghetti with breadcrumbs is a tribute to Sicilian food.

Breadcrumbs are one of the main ingredient of Sicilian cuisine. A poor cuisine born from the imagination of people able to make special recipes with few but ingredients. The Sicilian farmers were brilliant enough to create a dish so rich in flavor that they did not fear comparisons with more elaborate dishes. Pasta with anchovies, breadcrumbs and capers is part of the Sicilian tradition. My  gluten free vegan version is a delicious alternative.
