“Pasta Al Limone”-Dreaming of Amalfi Coast

Pasta Al Limone Pasta Al Limone

The picturesque Amalfi Coast of Italy is known for it`s steep coastline, romantic trails and rich Mediterranean vegetation – where lemons are growing in abundance from trees in cliffside gardens. “Pasta Al Limone” is a wonderful Italian specialty that pays tribute to the legacy of lemons at the Amalfi Coast. The zest of lemons, Parmesan cheese and a few simple ingredients bring the rich flavours of the Mediterranean Sea. On top, we received these beautifully handmade plates and Limoncello (Cantine A. Sammarco) from Ravello at the Tyrrhenian Sea. – How could Pasta taste any better?
