What’s Burning Tonight: Bigoli al Ragù d’Anatra

I’ve mentioned this before, but it’s worth repeating. You’ve not truly experienced Vicenza, Italy until you’ve sat down at the table and savored a traditional pasta dish of BIGOLI (BEE-goh-lee) in some fashion.

The City of Palladio’s preferred pasta is topped with a variety of different ragù (sauce), but the one most requested is a white sauce of minced l’anatra (duck meat). When ordering off the menu, just ask for Bigoli al ragù d’anatra. It’s what’s burning tonight in my kitchen.
