This recipe is the dish of all the houses from the south to the north of Italy, and vice versa. Its goodness depends on the very fresh ricotta that becomes a cream, which only in the encounter with the Pecorino finds the sapidity to wrap pasta with softness and flavour together. To finish it off, crumbled speck so that it is present in every bite to make everyone happy until the last forkful.
