Spaghetti Alla Carrettiera (Thin Spaghetti With Breadcrumbs)

“Apparently this dish is named in honour of a carters wife, who travelled everyday to Rome from the countryside with her donkey laden with fruit, vegetables and wine. I don't know how true that is, but it's a good simple dish made with humble ingredients, and it's delicious.”
