Tuna pasta is one of the most famous Italian comfort food! There are several version of this recipe. Today I prepared it with tomato sauce, capers and black olives. The most important think to prepare a tasty tuna pasta is add the canned fish just 5 minutes before toss and serve. Even if the sauce is perfect just cooked, the day after will be even more tasty! Just prepare the sauce one day in advance and toss with the pasta just before eating.
Rosemary flatbread is a Tuscan specialty! In Italy it is called “focaccia” or “schiacciata”. Coarse salt is essential to obtain the characteristic taste and texture. The Italian tradition requires adbundant olive oil. For this reason the quality of the oil is essential to obtain a great “schiacciata”. I love load my rosemary flatbread with cheese, baked vegetables or cured meats, but it is delicious simply plain as well!
Sauteed artichokes with bacon is a quick and tasty appetizer! They are perfect combined with mint and pork meat, just remember to choose very tender artichokes!
