Pasta with Bottarga simple and quick recipe for a different first course

Pasta with bottarga: bottarga is a food consisting of tuna and mullet roe (mullet). It is mainly produced in Sardinia (that of mullet) and in Sicily that of tuna. In this recipe I prepared it in the most classic way: on pasta, with a crunchy panure and with lemon strips that enhance its particular flavor. A quick and summery first course.
