Pasta-Making Tips

Ten Best Hacks for Making Pasta There’s a right way and a wrong way to churning out a successful batch of pasta. 

Green Home Made Tagliatelle with Mint Pesto

A sauce that is loved and used often in Italian Homes is the beloved ‘Pesto alla Genovese’. The word Pesto applies to any combination of herbs ground with a mortar and pestle.

Spinach Tagliatelle with Walnut Sauce

I love making fresh natural herby, veggie or natural food based pastas. With the spinach, when you add the olive oil and marjoram, season to taste with salt and pepper, you end up with a magnificent Spinach Tagliatelle.

Italian Sausage Tortellini

This filling is very simple but tasty and they are always served at important occasions – this recipe is my version but every family has their own recipe.

Bruna and Chris live & breathe hospitality.


That’s what friends do.
