Pasta Spezzatino is a classic Italian recipe, named after the small cubes of beef. That's what 'spezzatino' means, 'little cubes of meat'. The meat is gently cooked in a rich tomato sauce and served on top of pasta. Traditional recipes add in mushrooms & carrots but my mom & I love garden peas so that's what we use in our family and it's called 'Pasta Spezzatino e piselli'. My mom loves this recipe and she's already looking forward to sharing her 'Spezzatino con Patate' recipe with you. It's definitely cooking season in the Papa Vince kitchen.
Traditionally a middle Eastern food & a staple in the Mediterranean diet, hummus has become an established favorite in any health conscious kitchen. Packed with vitamins & minerals and anti-oxidants from the extra virgin olive oil, not only will it make you healthy from the inside out but will also wake up your tastebuds.
All you need is a good quality blender or food processor & your Papa Vince Olive Oil & Lemon Olive Oil and you’re all set.
We recently served this as an appetizer at our Christmas Open House. We prepared a double portion and there was none left at the end of the evening.
This is a healthy & different appetizer idea that you can easily prepare and wow your guests at holiday parties!
