I know it’s still March, I know this is more of a Summer dish so those who cook only with seasonal produce should look away now. I have been cooking with courgettes a lot lately. Given the strange times we are currently living in I find it easy to turn to familiar comfort food. However […]
I’m always on the lookout for new pasta recipes. Recently someone on Instagram posted a photo from Padella of a pasta dish with nduja (apologies, I can’t remember who posted it).
