Sagne 'ncannulate al sugo - Curled tagliatelle from Salento from her cooking repertoire
Thank you for always keeping alive the memory of my loved ones ❤️
I love this so much; thank you for sharing.
I love this kind of toothsome pasta (and that last photo, I can taste it through the screen). But it's especially meaningful hearing you tell it through the eyes of Tommaso and Bianca, to see him with the baby pink skin against his Nonna's browned body, I see and feel so much about this part of the world. And it makes me miss raising my babies in this way, in the old world, near their grandmother's cookings and soft arms and lore. Thank you for this.
Oh, this was a special entry! Thank you for sharing and for sparking an involuntary Madeleine moment!! 💭
Memories are flooding back... Both my parents were pharmacists. Dad was a curry man and if you visited the pharmacy at lunch time there would often be an inviting tang of curry in the air. Mum was a fantastic cook and was a particularly good baker. Amongst many dishes, she made a wonderful moist minced beef & corn pie with a sour cream topping and a firm pastry base. I’ve not been bold enough to cook it myself — perhaps it’s time...
My grandma also made a rough pasta dough. She used only her rolling pin and a knife and her ravioli were thick and chewy and they were the best ravioli I’ve ever eaten. I’m sorry Bianca never got to meet Livia but my faith tells me she is watching over her from above❤️
