Is there a problem a big beautiful plate of pasta can't fix? Pasta is a joy to cook and eat. Pasta is love on a plate! For this recipe, I confit-ed juicy grape tomatoes in extra virgin olive oil with garlic, chili, and basil until the tomatoes are gorgeously bursting. I mashed the garlic and tomato confit, I cooked Spaghetti, I tossed all the goodness together with the confit oil, fresh basil, and grated Parmesan. Simple, delicious, irresistible. Here's the recipe!
The other day I found the most perfect pumpkin. I spent a lot of time wondering what to do with it, then I decided that perfect produce should be paired with pasta! This dish is pure comfort on a plate. The sauce is creamy and it coats the pasta beautifully. I gently fried wild sage leaves in butter until crispy which made a wonderful finishing touch, along with crumbled goat cheese or grated Parmesan and chili flakes. So good!
Fresh Peas are popping everywhere this time of the year. They are tender and super sweet, I can snack on a pile by myself! I love to pair them with olive oil, spring onions, lemon, mint, fennel, and chili for a little kick. And there is nothing like pasta to bring all this goodness together. It's such a light and delicious dish. Check out the recipe!
This pasta dish smells and tastes like Spring. The salsa verde is simply made of parsley, basil, garlic, capers, lemon juice, lemon zest, and extra virgin olive oil.

Cheesy garlicky stuffed chicken, with mushrooms, and Spaghetti twirls swimming in a light creamy sauce. Come on, everyone loves it! I stuffed the chicken with garlic confit from Jar Thuraya, sundried tomatoes, lemon zest, and Emmental cheese. The garlic confit cloves are so sweet, they take the dish to a new level. And when you cut a piece of chicken, and that sauce seeps into the filling. SO GOOD!
Summer happiness on a plate? let me tell you what that is; nests of al dente spaghetti, with homemade pesto, lots of lemon zest, summer peas, crispy spicy chorizo, sweet tomatoes, creamy fresh mozzarella, all drizzled with extra virgin olive oil. Perfection!
