Pasta Piselli, Old Fashioned Recipes. Simple Foods Makes The Home Great!
Make Mine Pasta!
I can't tell you how many times I heard that phrase growing up but it never sank in until later when I was older and times were not so hard that we ate these foods not from necessity but because our entire being longed for the wonderful simple foods from our past when money was tight and families had to conserve and be creative in order to feed a family with nourishing foods on an extremely limited budget.
Until this day, I never go on a vacation that when I return home the first thing I long for from my kitchen is Pasta Piselli. Fancy Restaurants are great for a change but on a daily basis I find myself longing for the simple foods of days gone by.

I hope you enjoy this dish as much as my family does. It is a favorite of my entire family with the exception of Scott and somehow he never got to like peas. Oh Well! It's your loss Scottie Boy!
