And is elegant enough to serve at any large gathering, or on a special occasion for two. It pairs nice with a side a caesar salad, crusty bread, marinated olives, and white wine. 

This is definitely one of my favorite pasta dishes, and takes less than 30 minutes to prepare. You can add chicken breasts or shrimp to this meal as well, sometimes I will add cherry tomatoes.

Really the sky’s the limit but sometimes simple is best. And this dish really taste so good without anything extra.

Just make sure you are using a lot of fresh Parmigiano and you will be eating like the Italians in Abruzzo.

La temporada 83-84 perdimos la liga la última jornada nuevamente en un triple empate con el Athletic y el Barça, el Madrid fue campeón durante 19 minutos pero no pudo ser. La llamada ley Bossman rompió la tradición de tres fichajes extranjeros y los equipos comenzaron a incorporar cada temporada muchos fichajes, el Madrid no se movio bien en esta nueva dinámica y con Lorenzo Sanz dejé de ser socio pero si a trabajar en los partidos con la televisión.
