Fusilli Mediterraneo

March is upon us, and as a lot of you recognize, we have fun Nationwide Diet Month. Diet month is the proper time to consider pasta as a backdrop for nutritious and scrumptious meals. I stay up for celebrating the month of March in some ways: first I might be in Italy for a couple of days, visiting my household and in search of new culinary inspirations; second, I’ll roll up my sleeves and do what I like greatest: COOK!

This recipe consists of many staples of the Mediterranean weight loss plan, together with entire grain pasta, additional virgin olive oil, Greek Kalamata olives, and pungent feta cheese, together with an sudden ingredient: ripe Hass avocadoes, the quintessential well being meals.

Buon appetito and HAPPY NATIONAL NUTRITION MONTH!
