Maccheroni al limone. Sardinia Island. Recipe
Sardinia, a beautiful island. I've always tried to understand his people and of course cuisine. It was not easy, but I think I have succeeded almost entirely. The people of Sardinia, is a bit closed, but very generous, as well as superb cuisine. Sardinian cuisine has influences from Spain and Genoa. The ingredients are simple, the sea and countryside. Even the art is so influenced, marine and mountain landscapes are inspired many painters.
