Recipe Tagliatelle with scampi and pistachio pesto of 10-06-2016 [Updated on 19-01-2017]
The noodles with scampi and pistachio pesto are a simple and refined seafood first course that will appeal to even those who turn up their noses in front of fish;) You know by now, I love shellfish, in this recipe the scampi combined with a fresh and colorful pistachio pesto, become a condiment divine for the noodles. The recipe is taken from my book "Misya's Menus 2"and you can find it in the chapter dedicated to the romantic dinner for two, because you know, there is no self-respecting dinner for two that does not have the aphrodisiac food par excellence in the menu of crustaceans. This morning I go running, I have a little girl in the office with me and I'm trying to get rid of all the activities I do on the PC before devoting myself to the "kitchen sector" something much more tempting for Elisa. Today in fact we will prepare the ice cream together, she wants to choose the flavors, we hope well;) A girls dock and good day.
