Are you looking a recipe for a delicious vegetarian pasta for your guests? You do not know how to reuse the wilted arugula in the fridge? Here’s a quick and easy and anti wastage pasta! Check the recipe.
I have a bad fault. I hate having the fridge too full.
We are only 2, plus Georgie our dog. in my opinion the fridge should not be too full because it would mean throwing away a lot of stuff.
We usually buy some zucchini, 2 aubergines, salad. What is there is used. We invent recipes based on what we have and not vice versa.
But unfortunately it also happens to us to be with vegetables that are going to pull the bucket, for example the rocket in a bag and then start these anti-waste recipes. In this case I converted the rocket into pasta sauce completing with the end of smoked ricotta and nuts magically appeared from the pantry. I swear: It’s so GOOD!
TAGLIOLINI PASTA IN ROCKET SALAD PESTO SAUCE, SMOKED RICOTTA AND WALNUTS || VEGETARIAN RECIPE
Blend the rocket with olive oil, salt, pepper, a small piece of garlic, grana or tasty pecorino. Be careful not to put too much oil, add one thread at a time until it becomes a cream.
Cook the tagliolini and add them to the large pan with the rocket pesto and a bit of old cheese.
Prepare the portions in the plates and finish decorating your pasta with rocket salad pesto with grated smoked ricotta (delicious) and chopped nuts.

Easy and quick recipe “Rice with chestnuts”.
It is also possible to use Japanese browns in the rice are goodness!
Living in the countryside has its positive sides like getting all kinds of food during the various seasons.
A few days ago a friend gave me a bag full of Japanese browns, but this year the chestnut season was favorable and I had collected and ate many, I decided to invent something new.
I knew that there was a recipe for rice with chestnuts, but I had never tried and the result was amazing! Me and Simone at the first bite we looked with their eyes wrapped, saying “Good!” …. I admit we could not believe it!
I also discovered that chestnuts can be frozen and eaten later, the important thing is to peel them and put them in the freezer without skin. And when you just want to throw them into bubbling water. You will have chestnuts all winter!
Boiled chestnuts are very good and bake in much less than cooking on a plate.
Peel the hard skin and put in a pan with cold water and 2 laurel leaves. From the time the water starts to boil, leave it 10 minutes. Pierce with a fork to test the consistency. Drain and peel them from the second peel. TIP: While peeling, keep them warm. in this way they will leap more easily.
Le castagne bollite, sono buonissime e stanno molto meno della cottura fatta su piastra.
RECIPE FOR THE VEG RICE WITH CHESTNUTS
In a frying pan put 450 gr of rice, 250 g of chestnuts (or more if you prefer) and 70 ml of cold water.
Cover with a lid and bring to a boil. Salts and leave on fire always at idle for 10 minutes. Then turn off and leave for another 13 minutes the rice to rest with the lid closed. Taste and the rice is ready.
I assure you. It’s great!

What to do and see in Birmingham in a day
What to see in Birmingham.
Last year at the beginning of summer I was in England for work. Between an event and the other me and my colleagues had 24 hours of total freedom.
Where we go? Choice arduous but ultimately won the second city of England: Birmingham.
Discovering Birmingham in 24 hours
This beautiful city in Industrial style is famous not only for the red bricks that cover most of the buildings but also for the 60 kilometers of waterways that almost inevitably change the profile of the city.
Birmingham, located in Central England, more precisely in the Midlands, is a multiethnic city and constantly evolving. Suffice it to say that almost half of the population is non-English origin and that in one hundred years has gone from being called “the city of a thousand trades”, to be the UK’s largest industrial center. Today it is changing again and is gearing towards tourism and the tertiary sector.
But let’s start from the beginning.
In my wanderings around the world as a vegetarian I think I’ve tasted all kinds of veggie burgers made with legumes or vegetables. One of my favorites is that of beet and chickpeas, better if a bit pungent. Here is the recipe: VEGAN […]
