We made fresh pasta and it reminded me of watching my grandmother make it in her basement kitchen when I was little. We made sauce from fresh Sicilian tomatoes, and no matter how hard I try to recreate that taste, it seems it can only come from those tomatoes.
And there were the views and the beautiful surroundings....

There will be more recipes from Toscana to come, and when I get brave enough to make my own pasta (after a crash course from Grandma), there will be plenty on that too. In the meantime, check out Toscana's site, and book a trip if you can. You won't be disappointed.
