Almond spaghetti

There is a well-known, super easy pasta recipe Italians love to eat. It’s almost the symbol of 'Italian fast food' and it's called 'pasta aglio, olio e peperoncino', that is pasta with garlic, oil, and hot chillies. Here we suggest a recipe variation: by adding lemon juice, lemon zest, toasted broken almonds and parsley you still manage to make it a quick and easy dish while giving it a different, more summery twist

Salty pies are always a great idea, especially if you are preparing apperitisers, a buffet for a party, or a yummy take-away dish! This recipe features Burrata, one of the most beloved Italian dairy products, a fresh cheese made of buffalo and/or cows' milk, similar to mozzarella but far softer and creamier. It's traditionally produced in the Murgia and in other Pugliese areas and is a real taste delight!
