Comments: 21 Days of Pasta: Dreaming of Italy

Comments

Except for the bug bite, it sounds like a perfectly wonderful vacation! I love pasta recipes like this, especially with good Italian pasta. I rarely eat it at home, but when in Italy, I must have pasta every day.

I'm reading a book that talks about the difference between American and Italian pastas and I think I understand not being sick of the pasta. It sounds like a great trip

Lydia, the bug bites were bad. And so was the day that the toddler nearly managed to run into a busy road on a blind curve (I gave him a rugby tackle and we both escaped with scrapes). That was easily the worst point of the trip, actually. But the weather was gorgeous and so was the food. The Critic and I even managed TWO dinners out in nice restaurants, thanks to the wonderful nieces who came out to help with the babysitting!

Barrett, I felt too silly to mention it in the post, but I swear both the Critic and I are convinced that even the store-bought pasta in Italy is significantly different from what we get in France. I have been buying Barilla brand since we got back and somehow it's lacking the bite and flavour of the stuff we bought at a cheap supermarket in Tuscany! I'd be interested in hearing what your book says about it!
