Magic and Pasta

Most Italians sure know how to enjoy life, and since good food is, what seems to weave it all together  - the treasures of the earth, the ocean and the human heart - good food is absolutely vital to celebrate and make each day special. It's not just about nurturing the body, but all the more about having part in the dance of life.
 Me and my family adore Italian food and can't get enough of pasta in all variations. Along the Ligurian coast you get heavenly seafood pasta dishes, easy, fresh and scrumptious.  If you'd like to make some at home,  try this yummy recipe by "the little kitchen! an amazing food blog i have just discovered. 
Have a fabulous start into august and see you soon!

  1. And summer is the best time to try to cook this way!

  2. GOOD MORNING Martina! HELLO! You are talking about one of my favorite all-time foods. And while in Italy, what better dish can you order? The fish, the pasta, the fresh fruits for dessert....all by the sea! I remember. I remember ordering a lovely dish and with my French and the server's Italian, I ended up with a delicious fish dinner. Let's never forget these moments?

  3. Hello Martina! I just saw your comment as I am on my computer trying to put a new blog post together! Oh yes my friend, August is my last attempt to take in all the flavors, perfumes and sensations of summer! We shall do this TOGETHER, always. HUGS!

  4. Hi Martina,
    oh, this looks great! A lovely Summermeal!
    Wishing you a wonderful new week,
    sending Love and hugs and blessings,

  5. Looks really great my dear!! Hello...glad you popped back, but it's great to get out and enjoy doing things too!! I hope you've been well!! Wish you a marvellous week my dear xx


    It sure was great to find your comment on my new post this evening! And yes, can you tell, I have been working on my poetry AND photos! What a fun summer it has been to read poetry with my husband, to write it, and to have the free time to go and wander and take pictures. Thank you for noticing and yet, my private poetry writings are completely different; writing a blog post to make it at least somewhat approachable is a different way to write than poetry for my writing group, but I love all the exercises and work it takes to make at least one good LINE.

    I hope you are enjoying the summer in memory, in taste, sound and texture. Much love to you dear Martina! Anita
