Pasta Burro e Salvia

'Pasta burro e salvia' is a starter with cheese, milk and herbs. It's a quick and easy dish, because as the Italians know, the best meals are often the simplest. In the time that it takes to boil the pasta, you will have exactly enough time to prepare a creamy, tasty sauce! If you don't have a lot of time to make a meal, 'pasta burro e salvia' is perfect as a starter.

We often forget that with the simplest ingredients, we can prepare dishes that are every bit as good as the more complicated dishes. The 'pasta burro e salvia' is already tasty on its own, but if we add a good cheese and the right herbs, it will really elevate the dish. Salvia (sage) is a green plant that fits both winter and summer dishes. The plant is very easy to keep in a vase or a pot. It will live up to 5 years, so after 4 years, it's time to plant a new one. Every year, the plant will grow blue flowers that smell wonderful. It comes as no surprise that "salvia" means "sano": healthy. The plant contains a rich essential oil and has a therapeutic effect. Using a good "burro" (butter) is very important for your health and for the flavour of the final result.

The quality of the butter depends on the milk used and the way it is processed. Good butter is rich in calcium, milk proteins and Vitamin A. Using margarine as an alternative to butter is not a good option, however, you could use mascarpone.

Vino d'Abruzzo

Abruzzo has something, it is a region that is so close to the capital and at the same time for many is still unknown and undiscovered. Everyone who has ever been to Abruzzo knows that people deserve respect for the way they live. They just work a bit harder and at the same time manage to maintain their simplicity and sympathy. They are known for the determination and passion with which they practice their profession. An ‘abruzzese’ is proud to be ‘abruzzese’ and rightly so, because Abruzzo is a unique place. Not to be compared to any other place in the world. Boretti's new Wine Climate Cabinets line is named rightfully so to this wine region. Quality and authenticity come together in this Abruzzo collection. Exactly what the region stands for. Exactly what Boretti, in combination with iconic design, stands out.
