Today we offer you a delicious recipe created for us by the restaurant “Botero” in Crema: the “Scialatielli with red mullet sauce, mussels, pumpkin flowers and saffron”, in combination with our Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore DOCG Extra Dry Drusian.
Let’s see together the ingredients and steps necessary for the creation of this first course.
