Who am I?

My name's Matt and I’m a pastaholic Brit who has been lucky enough to marry into a family of Italian kitchen maestros.

With the help of my wife Laura, her super-patient Mamma Marisa and almost every other member of 'da family', I've gained the inside-track on how to cook delectable, mouth-watering Italian pasta.

And now I'm delighted to share what I've learned with you.

This site brings our family's combined pasta knowledge into one place, written in English for the first time. So rather than being stored solely in Mamma Marisa's brain or scribbled - in Neapolitan dialect - in old sauce-stained notebooks, these recipes are easy for you and I to look up and cook up.

As they say in Italy, buon appetito! I hope you enjoy this food as much as I do...


PS: Not quite convinced? Thinking ‘You know, I think I’ll just buy a ready-meal instead’? Then I urge you to click through to my very easiest section - where ZERO brain power is required, I promise!
