.: Under a violet moon

Sometimes you need to feel like you are in an ancient tale, eating something really simple, warm and smelling like friendship and childhood. The atmosphere of a magic tavern, with someone singing old songs…

If you’ll cook my ragù and use it to dress some tagliatelle, you will try that feeling. But.. what are tagliatelle ? Do Italians know ? Well, some of them. Others would talk about fettuccine, but hey… the important thing it’s it is pasta with eggs inside. There are basically two kind of pasta: with eggs and without. The one without eggs is the most common one, like penne, spaghetti, maccheroni and so on. The one with eggs is mostly freshmade, but you can easily find it in the dried up version. My granny was a master in making pasta with eggs. Maybe it’s because of her that tagliatelle make me feel so nice… remind me of her. Sweet old days of bliss.
