It only seems fitting that today, as I (attempt to) arrive in Paris for the summer (it’s a long story involving a 14 hour flight delay), that I am posting a recipe over on the Real Women of Philadelphia website for a pasta sauce inspired by another fabulous trip, this time to Italy.
When we travel, we love to bring back recipes, ingredients and cookbooks from the places we visit so that we can keep the vacation living on even when we are home and this dish is one we discovered and couldn’t stop thinking about so when we returned home, we set about getting the recipe (you can read the story here). We’ve made this recipe a standard on our dinner menu since then (you can see a video of me making it here) and over the years it’s changed and adapted according to what ingredients he have on hand (or not). This latest version has Philly standing in for feta or goat cheese and is a little creamier with less of the sharp flavour a goat/ feta cheese would bring but it really works!
