.: Thank you

Thank you sun, thank you soil, thank you water, and above all, thank you daddy, for this magic. This is dedicated to all of you which can’t walk directly among things growing in the summer…

plums are sooo sweet

pears are good too

you couldn’t cook without tomatoes

love peaches too

and what about chili peppers ?

.: More times

I am developing a passion for chicken in a sauce of tomato and spices.

and I have lots of onions…

and onions…

so I’m gonna cook this spiced tomato sauce chicken many more times…

see previous post for the recipe of sauce. what about the chicken ? put the chicken pieces in a bowl with lemon juice, evo oil, garlic and all the spices you like: pepper, coriander, turmeric, cumin, ginger, paprika and whatever you like. Let the chicken there 1 or 2 hours, then put it in the pan where you have previously cooked the sauce and let it cook until done.

Yes, summer is zucchini and tomato time… so here are two simple recipes based on tomato sauce. The first one is a pasta dish, while the second one is a basic sauce you can use to cook many other food (meat or pasta).

Put some oil in a pan, add a little minced onion and fry, then add the zucchini pieces and cook a little, then add the tomato sauce. Cook your favourite pasta in salted water and just before it’s done, put some pieces of mozzarella in the pan

Put the cooked pasta in the pan and mix it all. You’re done.

You can make a similar sauce (with no mozzarella) and use it with pasta or to cook different kind of meat in it, for example chicken or beef.

evo oil as a base. Put some minced onion and cook very little. Then add some minced carrot (the sweetness of carrots makes it great)  and the minced zucchini (optional). Finally add the tomato sauce, a little of minced garlic and all the spices you like… for example: pepper, chili, cumin, coriander, ginger, turmeric, paprica. Remember to add a little water if it dries… you should keep it fluid. Jump into the pleasure…
