We love this recipe because it contains our favorite pasta with a healthy, seasonal vegetable that is perfect for Fall. We add in lots of raw garlic which certainly adds to the flavor of the dish but it also boosts your immune system which is so important during the change of seasons.

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'.
Traditionally every Italian made their own pasta but nowadays for most families it's only on special events and holidays. It takes a little more preparation time than prepackaged pasta but it tastes so much better. Chef Federico shows how you can easily make your own pasta.
This is a recipe that was shared by one of our loyal Papa Vince customers. They joined us on our Olive Harvest Tour in Sicily last year and came back with a love in their hearts for Sicily and all things Papa Vince.
We love our customers to share their healthy recipe ideas with us and we can't wait to try this dish ourselves, what better combination than chicken, spinach, tomatoes and mushrooms.
My Mom makes the most delicious Pasta with Broccoli. It's Italian comfort food that's nutritious & satisfying at the same time. The ingredients include our parsley pesto recipe, which can be completed while waiting for the pasta to cook and the broccoli to steam!
