    Noo's Note:

    Apparently this dish is named in honour of a carters wife, who travelled everyday to Rome from the countryside with her donkey laden with fruit, vegetables and wine. I don't know how true that is, but it's a good simple dish made with humble ingredients, and it's delicious.

      Very good! I weighed the pasta (spaghetti rigati) and parsley...the parsley ended up being one bunch without stems. I made this as directed with double the garlic and 6 tbsp total olive oil. I tossed everything together. This tasted really good but was a bit Hubby added extra oil and parmesan to his serving. I served it with chicken strips tossed in Greek seasoning on top.

      This dish is just amazingly good, and one would never suspect it by just reading the ingredients. I can usually tell if a recipe will appeal to my family, but this one surpassed my expectations. I used high fiber spaghettini and twice the amount of rough torn breadcrumbs from a quality nine-grain loaf. My vegetarian daughter sprinkled some parmesan cheese on hers, and my carnivore husband topped his with spaghetti sauce...each declared their meal delicious. Interestingly, my husband asked if there were bacon bits in the sauce because he liked the crunchy bits....the toasted breadcrumbs....and it made me think that next time I might try frying the breadcrumbs in bacon fat if I have any.
