Red wine and beer ;-)

Info Info

Cinque Pi is an Italian pasta dish. The low-calorie modern classic is named after its 5 (cinque) main ingredients:

  • Pomodoro (tomatoes)
  • Panna (cream)
  • Parmigiano (parmesan)
  • Prezzemolo (parsley)
  • Pepe (pepper)

There is also a popular and very tasty variation on the recipe which adds prosciutto ham.

For me a spoon to taste my cooking with is the most important kitchen utensil.
