Ciao Italia

Fantastic Fazzoletti / Fantastici Fazzoletti

Mary Ann heads to Guy’s Garden to harvest a whopping-huge handful of aromatic basil leaves for making pesto in her marble mortar and pestle, using olive oil, pine nuts and a LOT of elbow grease. Then she turns her labors to creating a signature dish from Liguria; delicate, square-shaped, handmade Pasta Handkerchiefs with Pesto Sauce. Nothing to sneeze at!
