Mediterranean Breakfast

Too much eating last days…. It is time to purify from toxins. Therefore… Mediterranean breakfast: espresso coffe, fruits, yougurt, fresh tomatoes and finally dry frisa bread with antioxidant olive oil (produced by my family in Calabria).

Orecchiette with Tomato Sauce

Last Weekend I have been lucky! 3 super girls from Puglia visited me… Then I got chance to eat homemade “Orecchiette” pasta with meat tomato sauce and Parmigiano cheese. It’s amazing how they made the Orecchiette!!! Ps – a perfect Italian Dolcetto Wine from Piemonte to support the Orecchiette;)

Yes, after two weeks of continuous running, meetings, travels, seminars…. I go back to kitchen.
After fry onions in extra virgin olive oil I add fresh tomatoes cut in pieces. After few minutes the peas and then the bacon cut in small cubes. Cook everything slowly, then add half glass of Dolcetto red wine at the end.

In the meantime… Cook De Cecco bucatini noodles in boiling water for 8 minutes.

Finally mix noodles and peas&bacon sauce keeping a little of hot water. Cook together for other 4 minutes mixing continuously. At the end… Eat!
