Pasta is not just cold weather comfort food,

When the sun comes out and the mercury rises,

I like to shift my inspiration to the southern end of the country

Like this Sicilian inspired

Cavatelli, con Sedano e olive,   

Pasta Sedano

Fresh Cavatelli with celery, olives, and mama lil’s peppers

-crisp, bright and just the right amount of spice, perfect for May Day!

Also today:

Sagnarelli, with braised pork and rapini ragu

Spaghettini, with basil-parsley-mint pesto
