Dreamy nettle gnudi from Giulia Scarpaleggia's book, Cucina Povera--like pasta, but easier.
What a wonderful recipe!
I love this Sara and perfect for the slow seasons ! I know exactly who I’m sharing this article with . A good friend started an Italian garden at her home and she loooves to cook.
I feel like every country has their version of peasant food and this is a good reminder for me to dig into my heritage and do some thoughtful cooking of my own. Thanks 😊
1st of all, Swiss Chard is one of my favorites! It's hard to find here, especially the GREEN ones! I prefer this over the colored.
2nd, I'd LOVE to get this cookbook for my daughter! She didn't get to know her Grandmother the way she cooked. Reading about this book takes me back to the days when I saw my grandma and grandpa cooking in this manner.
This is the most beautiful, heartfelt, thoughtful review of Cucina Povera I could ever wish for. You made me fall in love with Hungary and with your life there through your words, and I am so happy to recognize a common spirit of these places we love and call home.
I hope this is just the first moment of sharing more and more recipes, virtually and-I am sure- also in real life!
Oh this looks so good, and will try with Swiss chard from the garden! Perfect for this weather!
Something about reading your essays before dinner time leaves me feeling peaceful, grateful for the abundance of earth’s offerings. Thank you.❤️
I cannot wait to try this recipe!
