Zuppa di Pasta e Broccoli...Italian Soul Food!!

Hmmm... let's see...what do I have in the house at the moment....a box of Ziti...a bag of broccoli, some olive oil, a little grated cheese and a a few hot red pepper flakes, water...presto! Italian Soul Food!!:)

Zuppa di pasta e broccoli

This is one of my very favorites...a fairly quick, simple, affordable, and healthy, home cooked meal that is delicious...yet it can also be served in the finest of restaurants...This is my Nonna's recipe...

 This is a a meatless dish...and just one wonderful example of what some these days may call "Italian peasant food"...dishes that were very basic and born out of necessity, hard times and love..."Food for survival" so to speak....and now these same dishes seem to nowadays be very trendy!

I will definitely have the full recipe in my upcoming cook book...

 Mangia bene a tutti mi amici!! Have an awesome weekend everybody!

And to all of you here in the US, have a very Happy Labor Day weekend!!! Love,
