Long fusilli with courgettes and pistachios pesto

I live in the countryside since 1 year, and it presents some advantages: health on first. But there is nothing better than gather some fresh ingredients from the kitchen garden almost every day, to prepare a sauce. Here is a special summer pesto, prepared with the ingredients coming from our kitchen garden, that works perfect for a long pasta shape. The best.

Omelette souffle

Omelette soufflé

This recipe is not a simply stuffed omelette.Tasty and quick to prepare, this dish is suitable for all meals. The lightness of the batter and the tasty filling turn this meal into a delicious summery idea. For the filling, you can create thousands of variants with different cheeses and vegetables in order to renew your flavor whenever you want.

Beef Wellington

Occasionally, we want to cook a classic recipe. The idea was to dine with friends, enjoying a good meal of meat, accompanied by a glass of wine. After a brief consultation, we decided for a classic roast. when to the butcher we saw that gorgeous fillet, we could not resist, and we immediately thought to beef Wellington. The dinner was quickly eaten, no leftovers, and the bottle of Merlot disappeared….. In short, a nice night with good friends.

Deep-fried battered prawns with crispy noodles

My friend Mimmo, the fishmonger at the food market, always has excellent fish. His counter is covered by all sort of sea delicacies. When I go early in the mornings, before it gets busy, I manage to chat to have a chat with Mimmo and I ask him to advise me on what to buy. Today I decided to purchase some prawns and on my way home I was trying to come up with the best recipe to use. Going through one of my many cooking books I found the recipe for a soft batter which seemed to be the perfect match to the sweetness of the prawns. In the end, the delicious shrimps covered in the light batter and deep fried, matched perfectly the light crunchiness of the fried rice noodles…this fried and easy to prepare dish was delicious!
