I’ve been in Canada for two weeks, and yesterday afternoon my daughter and I decided to go check out, an Italian festival taking place on College Street in Toronto, called ‘The Taste of Italy.” I thought maybe we could find a plate of Pasta AllAmatriciana!
We walked around the street, passed by many Italians and mangia-cakes. As the Italians coming from the old country used to call Torontonians. It felt like I was back in Italy. There was a very friendly atmosphere surrounding us. And when we started to get a little hungry we decided to go try an Italian restaurant called “Il Gatto Nero.”
The place was filled with people watching the World Cup game: Argentina vs. Bosnia. Everytime I come back to Canada for a visit it’s always World Cup time, (strangely enough and is in no way planned). I get so hyped up about it. There are so many different ethnicities in this city, which radiates a sense of unity and respect towards other ethnic groups as well as their own.
My daughter and I were sitting at our table and sharing a pizza when I started thinking of how great Italian cuisine is.
Some of the most amazing Italian recipes, in my opinion, involve pasta and one of my favourites, which I am eager to share with you today, is called Pasta allAmatriciana.
It’s made with tomatoes and pancetta, it’s easy and simple, yet so delicious. Buon Apettito!
