Originating in Calabria, Italy, N’Duja is a spicy, spreadable salami.
This simple supper or light lunch dish is the perfect 20 minute meal; creamy, spicy, cheesy – it’s comfort food at its best!
280g dried Spaghetti, cooked to your liking

2 small shallots finely diced
1 tsp dried parsley or fresh chopped parsley
130ml double cream
seasoning to taste

Fry the N’Duja, shallots and parsley in the garlic oil for a couple of minute until beginning to soften, use a wooden spoon to break down the N’Duja, allowing it release all its delicious, spicy oils.
Once it has melted down add the tomatoes, cover and simmer for five minutes
Pour in the cream and allow to gently bubble and thicken slightly
