Maccheroni, Alla Cacciatore Infruttuoso

Well, I guess it’s hard to call this dish just “alla Cacciatore”,

which translates to “Hunter style”  -if there is no meat in the dish?

So we’re calling it Cacciatore Infruttuoso -the Unsuccessful hunter style.

Because even if you came back empty handed from a game hunting trip….

Cacciatore infruttuoso

you deserve a belly full of satisfying Maccheroni, with nicoise olives, mushrooms, tomato, oregano and a pinch of spice.
