Steps of preparation

  1. At low heat, toast the breadcrumbs in extra virgin olive oil until golden brown, adding some fresh parsley to enhance the flavour of your mixture, and set aside.
  2. Bring a pot of salted water to a boil and add your gorgeous bucatini until cooked al dente, about 9 minutes.
  3. Drain the pasta and add it in a bowl together with the pesto, tapenade, hot chili purée and some pasta water. Whisk all ingredients together vigorously to create a creamy sauce, thanks to the starch found in the pasta and in its cooking water. Note: pesto should always be added off the heat! 
  4. Serve your delicious pasta, and garnish it with your toasted breadcrumbs and a little more parsley.
  5. Enjoy it with a drizzle of olive oil for a decadent finish (optional).
