Anchovy-tomato cappellini and deep-fried aubergine salad (Dinner 26 June)


This pasta sauce is wonderful. IT is tasty, economical, easy and quick to prepare and also healthy. The perfume of truffle oil makes it luxury.... it never missed the appreciation from the company who share this menu. 


Anchovy-tomao cappellini

While shimmering the tomato sauce, I prepared the deep-fried aubergine salad.
