C'mon... you must have a favorite pasta dish you like to whip up for guests! Or maybe an easy pasta staple that you turn to when the cupboard's bare or you're out of inspiration?
This stupidly easy vegetable pasta recipe comes courtesy of my mamma-in-law's good buddy Nuccia Pelliccia. (What a cracking Italian name!). Called ‘penne zucchine pomodoro’ in Italian, it combines molten zucchini (AKA courgette) with fresh chopped tomatoes, basil and a seriously fiery chili kick.
This pasta recipe was sent to me by a very kind Belgian lady named Heidi. To luscious spinach tagliatelle it adds a leek and onion crunch, fresh salmon strips, and subtle mix of herbs and spices. It's just amazing to me that a recipe as simple as this can result in such a tasty meal.
I received this traditional ‘Pugliese’ recipe from an Italian mamma named Rosetta Chirico. It offers a lovely contrast - rolled beef, the 'kick' of celery leaf and tomato and cheese-smothered little ears (orecchiette).
Perfect for using up leftover turkey after Christmas or thanksgiving, this baked tagliatelle recipe is a real creamy meat treat. (Don't have leftovers? Just fry up turkey from scratch - I explain how.)
Quick Recommendation: Italians have pasta and Germans have their noodles. And Southern Germany in particular just loves 'em! Check out my German friend Gerhild's German noodles page to learn more and explore some tasty traditional treats.
