Step by Step Instructions
  • Step 1: Prepare the rooster. Heat the olive oil and butter in a saucepan and add the rooster, cut in portions. Sauté very well until golden brown all over. Remove the rooster from the saucepan and set aside.
  • Step 2: Put the onions, carrots and garlic in the same saucepan and sauté for 6-7 minutes, until they soften. Put the rooster back into the saucepan, adding the brown sugar, clove and cinnamon powder. Sauté for 2-3 minutes, pour in the wine and wait 1-2 minutes for the alcohol to evaporate.
  • Step 3: Cover the rooster with the tomato sauce and a little water. Cook it with the salt, pepper and bay leaves at low temperature for about 2 hours, until the meat is really tender and separates from its bones, and the sauce thickens.
  • Step 4: Prepare the macaroni. Place the macaroni in boiling, salted water and let it boil for about 10 minutes, until soft. Drain the macaroni, pour some olive oil over it to prevent it from sticking together and keep it hot until served.
  • Step 5: Serve the rooster immediately, together with the boiled macaroni.
