Polenta con Funghi Porcini

I’ve always loved polenta since the first time I tried it in a rifugio after a long hike in the Dolomites, and make it semi-regularly as a very cheap, delicious, and quick meal. And… Continue reading

Penne alla Vodka

Every time I ask one of my friends if they want vodka pasta for the first time they think I’m joking, and are extremely surprised when I tell them I’m being serious. However,… Continue reading

Homemade Fettuccine (al Sugo)

Ever since I was a kid I remember watching in awe as my dad would take a seemingly boring piece of dough and, using an incredible machine, magically transform it into the delicious pasta my… Continue reading

Supplí allo Zafferano

Although these aren’t the classic supplí, they were, surprisingly, the first ones I ever tried. I’ve wanted to make them for a while, but now that I came back from Egypt with tons… Continue reading

Pasta e Fagioli

I know today was supposed to be another International recipe, but I’ve left on a trip to Rome and then Paris to bring my cat back to London (long story) and haven’t had… Continue reading

Aubergine and Pine Nut Pasta

This is an extremely tasty pasta, which also happens to be quite nutritious. I came up with this pretty much by just picking random ingredients that I felt like eating and combining it… Continue reading

Pepper and Tomato Pasta

My mom had always told me that peppers and pasta don’t go well together, except for a few very specific mixes with blue cheese and cream. Since she was never wrong about anything… Continue reading

Blue Hokkaido Pumpkin Ravioli

Spicy Mushroom and Sausage Pasta

I know, I know, I make way too much stuff with mushroom and sausages. But since it’s so easy, cheap, and tasty, after I made this for myself I thought I might as… Continue reading

Pizza

Finally, after way too long, I have made myself some vegan pizza! I don’t know why it took me so long to actually get around to making it, since I love pizza, but… Continue reading

Caribbean Sugo

An old trick I always used back when I wasn’t vegan and I had to feed a lot of my hungry friends was to make a regular sugo and then make it twice… Continue reading

Pesto di Olive

This pasta is pretty simple to make, doesn’t take too long, and tastes absolutely insane. The color might look a bit weird, but don’t worry, I assure you that the taste more than… Continue reading

Bread Pizzas

Here is perhaps one of the best ‘lazy’ foods there is: the bread pizza. It tastes kind of like pizza, but while it is clearly a completely different thing, it still tastes great.… Continue reading

Umbricelli al Sugo

In most Italian households, sugo al pomodoro, or just sugo, is the standard sauce for pasta. When the cook has had a bad day, or a lazy day, it’s always pasta al sugo… Continue reading

Mushroom, Cherry Tomato, and Coconut Milk Pasta

Of all the pastas I’ve been experimenting with, this one I was particularly satisfied with. I picked up the ingredients in about 30 seconds and paid close to nothing, and then started making… Continue reading
