Linguine con Pomodorini

 Linguine con Pomodorini

It is often the case that one’s love for cooking comes from their environment. Growing up in a home with a mom who, amongst many other things, could have had a great career in cooking, I realize that my love for the kitchen I inherited from her. And today happens to be her Birthday! So, today’s special recipe is dedicated to her! She has taught me my love for home cooking, using natural, delicious ingredients, turning a simple recipe into a delicacy! But see, she, being extraordinary, would have made the linguine herself! So here’s a promise, next time I find myself with her in the kitchen, we will be making some delicious homemade pasta together! Until then, do enjoy this deliciously simple recipe on any day of the week, and why not today for your meatless Monday 🙂

And of course, Happy Birthday Mama <3
