Spaghetti Napolitana. Traditional recipes of pasta in Napoli. What do you think? Yeap. The list is extensive. Pasta Napolitana is probably the most famous outside Italy. An omnipresent and easy dish that never fails with kids. Based on tomato sauce and fresh herbs, olives, and (occasionally) mushrooms this pasta dish was first mentioned in a Neapolitan cookbook of the 17th century but it was probably a part of everyday diet before its first written record. There’s one way to enjoy this in a proper manner. With a mountain of grated cheese on top. Ask any kid in the world.
