“The perfect factor concerning the Mediterranean food regimen? It doesn’t style like a food regimen.”

I simply learn these phrases within the newest problem of the Harvard Gazette and I instantly considered sharing them with you, my pricey pasta-loving pals.

The article begins by stating that of all diets, the Mediterranean one transcends instances and traits and has established itself as essentially the most dependable, sustainable and, most of all, best to comply with. I quote from the article: “… one food regimen specifically has withstood the check of time and been repeatedly heralded by docs and researchers as selling vitality and longevity.”

That is nice and welcome information for pasta followers!

Let’s see why: first, pasta and extra-virgin olive oil are a match made in heaven. Pasta, any sort of pasta: complete wheat, historical grain, gluten free, vegan, farro, or just golden and scrumptious onerous wheat semolina, cooked to an ideal “al dente” texture and easily tossed with a fruity further virgin olive oil (“a crudo,” as we are saying in Italy) and maybe sprinkled with Parmigiano Reggiano OR pungent Pecorino Romano, and heightened with recent chopped herbs is a deal with that all the time hits the spot!

Confess: I made you hungry. Now, think about the INFINITE potentialities if we additionally resolve so as to add the freshest seasonal greens and/or lean, wholesome meat or seafood this recipe. Now we’ve got reached perfection, and we are able to even say that …we’re on a “food regimen! Though farmers’ markets in northern climes might not function in winter, there are nonetheless plenty of methods to create wholesome meals with recent greens, heightened by particular flavors akin to artichokes preserved in olive oil.

Detto, fatto: Get pleasure from my SPAGHETTI WITH ARTICHOKES, SPINACH, AND GARLIC as a winter deal with worthy of Valentine’s Day.

Buon appetito and arrivederci al mese prossimo!
