Pasta, pasta and more pasta.

You walk to the center of Rome and came peckish?

I can say that this suggestion is just right: Il Pastificio in  Via della Croce.

Pasta, pasta and more pasta.

Two or three sauces to try on a dish of fresh pasta, made precisely the same day, by the Pastificio.
It ‘s a small shop, which is equipped for the lunch hour, and prepare tasty meals to eat quickly.
There you will have to adapt to eating often standing, because there are no tables, but only a few stools, and you will find a large number of young people doing the lunch break!

Instead of the usual sandwich…

Gnocchi, fettuccine, trenette, depends on the day!

Il Pastificio
Via della Croce 8, Roma
From 4 to 6 euros a portion 

Luxury meal? Pasta with sea bass, arugula and ginger

The Luxury is for the few?

The luxury is knowledge!  
The luxury is to appreciate something special, unique, as the taste of certain dishes…

Here we are…

4 sea bass fillets, cut into strips
300 g arugula
some fresh mint leaves
1 onion
extra virgin olive oil
ginger root

Cook the pasta al dente

Suggestions for the type of pasta: Farfalle, Mezze maniche, Orecchiette.

Sauté in a pan with olive oil, the chopped onion and some mint leaves for a few minutes.

Add the strips of sea bass, salt and pepper, cook for a few minutes, with the lid, low heat.
Blanch the arugula quickly in boiling water.

Drain  and place the arugula into the pan of  the sea bass, stir and season it all quickly, add fresh pepper.

Put the drained pasta into the pan with the sauce, mix gently.

Grate a bit of ginger root on top and serve in hot platesimmediately!
