When it comes to pasta… I’m not picky! I could even eat them just with salt and pepper! I think pasta is about 80% of our meal HA-HA-HA oui, oui, not joking! We are pasta lovers, pasta fans, pasta addicts! Hello, my name is Sefra and I’m a pasta addict! HA-HA-HA This recipe is probably the simplest one and also one of the best. 15 minutes maximum and you’re ready to eat the best pasta you could imagine! Every real and good Italian restaurants have these pasta on their menu. You cannot be a pasta lover and not fall for this recipe.
When Sefra and I announced our friends and family that we would start a blog about food and cocktails, many asked us if we would do cocktail and food pairing. Even if I think that sometimes cocktails can be great friends with food, I honestly think that wine is so much better. Bottom line, my answer to this question was “no” unless I really feel for it and guess what? Today I feel for it.
A couple of months ago, Jean-Félix and I were in Italy. It was amazing! Italy is, for food and drinks, the most exceptional place I’ve ever visited. For people like us, it’s like being in paradise. You can’t ask for more. Everything there is made to make you enjoy your time off and fill up your belly. Which we did, of course! This destination was very influential for us. In my life, almost all my memories are connected to smell or taste and Italy is all about that. So I let you imagine how great it was for me, for us! How many new memories we brought back.
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!
