Eating Good is Living Good ~ Italian Food a Feast for the Eyes!

There is something sunny about Italian cooking, you can just see it with your own eyes and taste it!
In that sense, eating Italian is an experience in the art of being alive! Italian cooking is food for the eyes and a feast for the mouth!

Pasta dishes are prevalent and there are many varieties of pasta, as well as sauces and meats served with pasta. The key really is fresh! All too often, I hear people say that Italian food is slow food thinking that means it takes hours or days to cook it. Wrong, the slow is in the enjoying of it.

Choose your pasta and then make a good sauce in only 20- 30 minutes; pasta cooks in less than that.

This dish is one of those that takes only minutes. Start with diced bacon (smoked /sugar cured) along with chopped onion and garlic sauteed in olive oil. Push aside when browned and add chicken breast strips. Brown those and then bring back in the bacon bits/onion and garlic. Add one small can of diced tomatoes and sprinkle in dried herbs: rosemary, mint and oregano.

Boil pasta on the side, fry some grated zucchini in butter to garnish and tutti a tavola... which means - Everyone to the table!
