Slide 3 of 5

Pappardelle with Smoked Butter and Herbs

In his gorgeous In.gredienti cookbook, Massimiliano Alajmo includes a dish called "pasta butter and smoke," made with smoked pasta and smoked butter and served with smoked hen broth. In this much-simplified version, the smoky flavor is all in the butter; it's mixed with cheese and chopped fresh herbs to make a rich sauce for silky pappardelle.

Pairing: Floral, medium-bodied Italian white: 2009 Santadi Villa Solais Vermentino.
