    Background

    Italians are passionate about their food but wait until you meet Filippa, she's a local chef who we met in Messina, Sicily who really loves to cook with fresh quality produce.  She showed us how to make a quick & simple pasta dish that you can easily recreate at home.  The Papa Vince Extra Virgin Olive Oil and tomato sauce give a beautiful golden finish to the sauce and allow you to experience the flavors of Sicily from any place in the world.

    We had fun filming with her in her restaurant but she wished that our camera could pick up the aromas from the kitchen.  You'll just have to try the recipe for yourself or come to Sicily with us.
