Have I already told you? We are addicted to pasta! We could eat some every single day. There are so many ways to cook them and so many different kinds and shapes of pasta that it’s impossible to get bored with it.
I chose Mafaldine pasta to make this recipe because I find them so chic! They are like little ribbons and I thought that it would go perfectly with a thick cream sauce! Those lovely pasta were named in honour of Princess Mafalda De Savoie from Italy. When you have a princess name, it comes with some kind of pressure…. Don’t you think? HAHAHA I hope that you will love this recipe and find that the Malfadine pasta are as good as they are beautiful!
Let me introduce you to the best Japanese fish-shaped waffles!!!
How can we not fall for those lovely little fish-shaped waffles? Almost impossible. They make me feel like a child again and I love it! Of course, you can have ordinary waffles and top them with whatever you want, but taking a bite in a Taiyaki filled with melted chocolate beats everything! Yep! I’m a baby girl! HAHAHA!!! And you know what’s the best news here? You don’t have to stop at chocolate, you can fill your little Taiyakis with anything you want. How great is this!!!
What I prefer about Italian food is the simplicity. Fresh ingredients, love and wine (Oh! and amaro for Jean-Felix’s digestif). That’s all you need! When we were there, every time we were in a grocery store, we were feeling like kids in a toy store. All the products you can find in there, it’s unbelievable. I could have spent my entire day shopping for food. They have this amazing way to put some love everywhere and make you feel like you need to buy everything. Them beautiful packaging and all the diversity… OHHH GOD I want to go back now!
Oh … and have you ever tried to translate the name of these Italian pasta in French??? HÉHÉHÉ You will see!
