Arborio: Where the rice was born

 

 

Arborio is a little village outside of Milan, approximately 60 km. The best “Arborio and Carnaroli” rice is produced in this village of 500 souls. Enjoy this “corto” about Arborio rice and the paniscia, recipe for risotto with nduja (salame cover with lard)

Pizza di pasta

 

 

Left over spaghetti are delicious, one of the Italian tradition is to prepare a “pizza di pasta” for picnic, my mother used to make it every day in summer. It’s easy to do. Ingredients are simple, left over spaghetti, any kind, better with tomato sauce, 2 eggs, 4 tbsp. parmesan cheese, chopped parsley and basil. Mix all the ingredients in a bowl, heat the oil in a frying pan add the spaghetti and fry, turn over, and serve it. The “pizza di pasta” is tastier when is served cold. Enjoy it :)
