Many of you might already know how much I love to eat pasta. I can eat it each day of the week and not tire of it. Were I to be asked what my last meal would be, pasta would most certainly be in the equation. So when the good people of Cooks & Books & Recipes gave me the opportunity to have a first look at Domenica Marchetti’s The Glorious Pasta of Italy, I was very excited indeed. Though there was no shortage of enticing pasta dishes to choose for my review, ultimately I selected a recipe that I feel represents well much of the dishes I share here: simple, unfussy, satisfying. Please click here for my guest review at Cooks & Books and Recipes and also to see the recipe for the dish I’ve prepared from Ms. Marchetti’s book, Gemelli with Fresh Herbs and Chopped Olives. It is a winner!
