This is going to be hard to believe, but I
was talking to an Italian guy about pasta last week. He sat next to me on an airplane. He's from Milano; his name is Marco. He asked about my favorite pasta. "Hmm, hard to say," I said. And he replied, "Right, you need to give a top five. One is impossible." His favorites: Carbonara, Amatriciana, Pesto Genovese, Ragu Bolognese, and Spaghetti Vongole. That's all I know about Marco. But really, what else is there to know? He’s my new BFF. When we discussed this week's Sunday Pasta
options, he suggested his own creation: Fusilli al pesto con pomodorini. In a hurry this week, I used Rossi Pesto Genovese
(made with DOP Basil, Parmigiano, and Pecorino) and Faella Fusilli. 15 minutes e pronto! Marco, where ever and whoever you are, grazie! Buon Appetito! Ed Garrubbo P.s Check out our wine pairings
