Pasta With Broccolini...

Healthy mediterranean at it's best.  Greens and pasta,  olive oil , garlic and ( don't be afraid), Anchovy's.  Use broccolini, or other seasonal  greens that you like,  and as usual "Q B" Quanto Basta" meaning as much as is needed with regards to salt, herbs and EVOO, which, in Italy is free flowing.

Landscape Salads

I think that fresh produce is amazing and  I believe in beautiful presentation, after all,  some say we eat with our eyes first.  In this case I thought of my garden and how things grow and  all of the beautiful colors . Some of the vegetables are raw, others I either roasted, grilled or steamed,  then arranged them as if I were looking at a landscape. Dressed lightly with EVOO and either citrus juice or a vinegar these salads are different than a beautiful bowl of greens, just as delicious and healthy, and a delight for the eyes.
