Pappare means “to gobble up,” in Italian, which is the destiny of this dish (particularly in Tara’s house, where her husband, Chris, makes it most Sunday nights). I like it spicy, but the quantity of harissa can easily be reduced. Make 3 days ahead if you like and keep in the fridge until needed

I have made this recipe 2 times. First time with the pappardelle, as the recipe suggests; but the second time, I used a short tubular pasta and we enjoyed it more. It is a fantastic sauce, and I look forward to making use of the rest of the jar of harissa I got just to try it.
I made this recipe last week for a group of friends, and we all loved it! I did not find rose harissa at our local grocery store, so I used harissa paste instead. Since I wasn't sure if rose harissa would have been less spicy than the regular paste, I used less than half of amount. The result turned out great! The sauce was spicy and flavorful!
