Pasta with vegetable

Often Italians are not regarded professional in the kitchen. The ability to open the refrigerator and “whip up” a good meal seems to belong to the reign of “pure improvisation”. My answer is: it depends on the result. If the “whipped up” meal is good and balanced this is more than random improvisation: it is deep knowledge of the ingredients, their behaviour in cooking and how they can be matched without destroying the pallet and the stomach.

author There some ingredients which are “easy pairing”, like pasta or rice.
The task is more difficult with vegetables, herbs, spices, meats, cheeses.
Here you find a couple of examples of pasta with vegetables “whipped up” from leftovers in the refrigerator.
Marcella Ansaldo invite you to visit her web site www.gigliocooking.com and to contact her at info [at] gigliocooking[dot]com.
ENJOY!
