My favourite pasta recipe.
I love pasta. I don’t think that will come as a shock to anyone.
For a very long time, my go-to pasta dish used to be penne with tomato passata and shallots, but in the past year, a new recipe has taken that spot: orecchiette with zucchini and pesto.
This combination is perfection, so allow me to show you how I prepare it. Read More

A vegan option.
If you have followed my channel for a while, you will know that one of my favourite dishes is bruschetta.
In the North of Italy, we make them slightly different from the South (which are the more common ones to find in restaurants around the world) and today I’m going to share the way I make them, but with a twist: I’m trying out vegan cheese for the first time. Read More

A Swedish recipe.
Yesterday Felix and I spent the day together, and decided to bake some bread buns.
He knew this recipe, which is quite simple, and so we made it (I let him guide me, as the original recipe is in Swedish) and then I ended up giving it a spin so we could have the freshly baked bread for dinner.
They turned out incredibly well, and if you are wondering, this is a vegan-friendly dish! Read More

Refreshing, easy and very tasty.
Yesterday I wanted to make a quick cold dessert with just a few ingredients.
I had some cookies that I hadn’t eaten in a while, so I wanted to finally finish them, as well as some soy cream and a vegetarian lemon jelly pack. I combined them, and came up with super easy frozen cake.

And yet another sweet recipe.
Yesterday I bought some sliced almonds, and I had smooth almond butter laying around. I put two and two together, and ended up making some cupcakes! Read More

Another cooking experiment.
Last week, at the airport, I grabbed a quick meal. I was intrigued by these “pasta balls” in the menu, and decided to try them out.
At first, I was a bit unsure if I was going to like them, but after the first bite, I fell in love with the taste.
The ones I’ve ordered were filled with kale, mozzarella and macaroni, so I got my ingredients ready and tried to recreate them. Of course, this being my first attempt, they didn’t turn out perfect, but still really tasty! Read More

A simple but delicious snack.
Now, I might be super late on this, but I’ve never actually made my own granola before. I ate it plenty of times, but I never realised how easy it is to make, and how delicious it tastes when you make it out of stuff you select.
I have been posting way too many recipes lately, I know, but I’m having too much fun trying to prepare food on my own! I hope you don’t mind.
So if you, like me, haven’t tried to make your own granola with cream, here is my recipe (that you can change and adjust depending on what you prefer). Read More

Let’s make some super easy sugarless (and vegan) cookies!
If you are craving something sweet, but you only have a few minutes and don’t want to eat an unhealthy snack out of your cupboard, here is something that might interest you.
This morning I wanted to make cookies, but without having to use a ton of sugar. I googled some recipes and decided to make my own, tweaking the ones I found a bit, and give it a go! Read More

I know. I know. I already posted a recipe not long ago, but this one got me too excited!
I was thinking about the foods I miss the most eating, the ones that sell in Italy but not here, in England, and Sofficini has always been one of them. They are this little “pouches” covered in breadcrumbs and stuffed with many different things: my personal favourites are mushrooms and mozzarella.
It was dinner time, and since Felix is still away, I had enough time to experiment with this dish. I wasn’t expecting to be able to make it from scratch, also considering that I have not seen or followed a recipe for this… but it turned out great!! Read More
