You might notice from our recipes that we f*cking love garlic!
This recipe may as well be called garlic pasta.
My god is it delicious.
Traditional Tuscan dish to go with a delicious wine from the same region!
We make the pasta ourselves and you can just use your kitchen roller if you don’t have a pasta machine.
Inspired by a recipe from Valeria Necchio
