Pasta Cacio E Pepe

>
>
This  most simple dish of pasta, black pepper and cheese confirms the genius of classic Italian cuisine once more.
Good quality pasta, cooked al dente with just the right amount of salt, fresh ground black pepper, grated  caciocavallo cheese  and a bit of the cooking liquid, it is pasta perfection at its finest. I enjoyed it tonight as a second course after a first course of a sexy salad of Romaine, Radiccio Rosso and  Bresola  with  Prepared Horseradish.
A truly wonderful dinner , fit for a king.
(And a Queen – Bella couldn’t get enough of both the pasta and the bresola) 🙂

Steak Salad

>
>
Usually,  part of the enjoyment of eating steak is cutting into a nice chunk of glistening meat and seeing it slowly but surely disappearing from the plate.
But for yesterday’s dinner, I just wanted to have some nice “finger food” to pick of a plate and sharing with madame while reclining on my chaise lounge, watching a great movie (The Grand Budapest Hotel).
