“The perfect factor concerning the Mediterranean food plan? It doesn’t style like a food plan.”

I simply learn these phrases within the newest difficulty of the Harvard Gazette and I instantly considered sharing them with you, my expensive pasta-loving mates.

The article begins by stating that of all diets, the Mediterranean one transcends occasions and developments and has established itself as probably the most dependable, sustainable and, most of all, best to observe. I quote from the article: “… one food plan particularly has withstood the check of time and been repeatedly heralded by medical doctors and researchers as selling vitality and longevity.”

That is nice and welcome information for pasta followers!

Let’s see why: first, pasta and extra-virgin olive oil are a match made in heaven. Pasta, any form of pasta: complete wheat, historical grain, gluten free, vegan, farro, or just golden and scrumptious laborious wheat semolina, cooked to an ideal “al dente” texture and easily tossed with a fruity further virgin olive oil (“a crudo,” as we are saying in Italy) and maybe sprinkled with Parmigiano Reggiano OR pungent Pecorino Romano, and heightened with contemporary chopped herbs is a deal with that at all times hits the spot!

Confess: I made you hungry. Now, think about the INFINITE potentialities if we additionally resolve so as to add the freshest seasonal greens and/or lean, wholesome meat or seafood this recipe. Now we now have reached perfection, and we will even say that …we’re on a “food plan! Though farmers’ markets in northern climes might not function in winter, there are nonetheless plenty of methods to create wholesome meals with contemporary greens, heightened by particular flavors resembling artichokes preserved in olive oil.

Detto, fatto: Get pleasure from my SPAGHETTI WITH ARTICHOKES, SPINACH, AND GARLIC as a winter deal with worthy of Valentine’s Day.

Buon appetito and arrivederci al mese prossimo!
