alla carrettiera

/ahl-lah kahr-reht-TYEH-rah/

"In the style of the cart driver or trucker." This must depend on the trucker or cart driver as I have seen several different descriptions of what this might be. These seem to come from Lazio and include 1) a sauce of tuna, mushrooms, pancetta and tomato served with pasta, 2) pasta with hot peppers and pork or 3) spaghetti with a sauce of anchovies, capers, fried parsley, garlic and onions. In Basilicata apparently this sauce is referred to as "alla trainiera" and has ginger added.
