Time for pizza?

Standard

Hi,

I love Italian cuisine and I do like pizza. If I recall correct in 2012 there were three times that I ate pizza.

May 2012- when I bought pizza for dinner…

October 2012- when I moved to my new house and I had no kitchen running…

November 2012- at my friends’ place…

I am normally very enthusiastic about cooking dinners but sometimes you just can’t avoid eating pre-packaged food. When I choose on my own, I try to buy as healthy food as possible. I must say, the pizza I present here is was really good- with mozzarella, salami, dried tomatoes, spinach and walnuts… Nutrition and ingredients were very acceptable. The taste was really great! Not mentioning aesthetic aspect…

How often do you eat pizza? Is it homemade, from a supermarket or pizza in a restaurant? What are your favourite ingredients?

Best greetings,

Tagliolini with vegetable strings and walnuts

Standard

Hello,

Make your pasta colourful and rouse! This time I decided for tagliolini which is a variation of tagliatelle (an Italian pasta). Tagliolini has long and cylindrical shape in contrast to flat shape of tagliatelle. I thought matching flat and round structures will be a nice differentiating detail that will make my pasta more exciting. Both tagliatelle and tagliolini are great for thick sauces but also for less rich ones. To enrich taste and give it a luxury tint I decided to add walnuts.

Ingredients (for 2 people):

– 250g tagliolini

– 1 garlic clove

– 1 zucchini

– 3 carrots

– Pesto

– Parmigiano

– Walnuts, 4 per person

– Olive oil

– Salt to taste

Know-how:

  1. Peel off carrots and cut lengthwise into thin slices.
  2. Slice in the same way zucchini (with skin).
  3. Cook vegetables without salt.
  4. At the same time cook tagliolini.
  5. Press garlic and fry until start gets brown.
  6. Cooked and drained tagliolini mix with fried garlic.
  7. Drain vegetables and lay down on tagliolini.
  8. Top with a tablespoon of pesto.
  9. Decorate with walnuts and sprinkle with olive oil and Parmigiano.
  10. Salt to taste if needed.

Let me know what you think of this recipe:)
