Growing up in an Italian family It was always the norm that food will fix everything. I went to mum and I was a bit Down, her answer was don’t worry bella I fix this.
As fast as a tornado I watched mum getting some fresh eggs from her chickens and a packed of plain flour.
Without measuring she put the ingredients in her new pasta machine and she started making Tagliatelle.
Then she went to her veggie garden and she got fresh tomatoes, fresh basil, garlic and onion. She fried the chopped onions and garlic, she then added the passata made with her fresh tomatoes and she let it cook slowly for a few hours
Once the sugo (sauce) was ready she went to cook the tagliatelle in boiling salted water .
Yes mamma’s cooking made me feel so much better.
