  6. The only thing you need to make a decent meal is some pasta...preferably fresh but dried is okay. Are you up to making your own tagliatelle?? ;-)

  11. The beauty of Italian cuisine is in its simplicity. All you need is a few fresh, good quality ingredients to make a fantastic meal. And if you can't get enough of real Italian food, that means that you have to visit again!

  20. Dear Anne,
    Does life get any better?
    My motto:
    Just add Pasta

  21. I clicked on the Conca d'Oro link. Have you tried lemon granita? (It would be a great dessert after you've made something with the oil, tomatoes and Rowena's pasta.)
