ABOUT  I was born in Florence, Italy, and grew up in Lecce, a beautiful town in the South of Italy. I found my love in America, I married him and moved to Denver-CO 18 years ago. We have now 5 beautiful children. I love food and cooking, I share this passion with my husband, who is a pizzaiolo of authentic Italian pizzas. I like to share my recipes on the internet, that’s how my little blog was born. Enjoy!

  • Hello everyone! Today's recipe is a pasta dish that I rarely make because of some "picky-eaters" in my family {my husband can eat almost anything…but don't give him peas!!! :)}. Pasta with peas.
