Enjoy!
Octopus with Pasta in the Pot – guaranteed to keep your body going whatever you have to do. It is going to take some time to cook – approx. 2 hours – but its level of difficulty is minimal: sautee, simmer, stir, do something else while food is cooking. (That difficult. 🙂 ) Enjoy!
Lamb with Pasta in the Oven. A simple, hearty, traditional (insanely) delicious recipe from Crete, Greece requiring no particular preparation and… very little cooking skills.

Pasta alla Carbonara. “Alla Carbonara” means “the coal worker’s style”. No one knows how this recipe got its name – some maintain that charcoal workers in the Italian mountains cooked spaghetti this way, others that the very generous dash of black pepper makes the dish look like charcoal. Whatever the case, this is a very classic Italian dish, presented here in its original form, with eggs instead of cream. Enjoy!
A yet another classic Italian recipe, this time from the region of Umbria, Gnocchi with Cream and Red Wine Sauce is something that’s worth cooking. Enjoy!
