I’m in Boston for a few days, heading for a mini beach vacation on the Cape. I’ll have some awesome dishes to share with you over the next week days (including some great seafood hopefully!), but in the meantime, some more Italian food!

This dish is one of my favorites – a simple dish, that’s refined and elegant. It originally comes from the book, Under the Tuscan Sun (I love the film adaptation) and I finally have gotten around to reading it!

And can I just say? Moving to Italy and eating fabulous food all the time is the ultimate dream, is it not?

And just reading about France Meyer’s experience in Tuscany.. well I’ve died and gone to foodie heaven, but in any event, I thought I’d share this with you today…

“Our favorite is spaghetti with an easy sauce made from diced pancetta, unsmoked bacon, quickly browned then stirred into cream and chopped wild arugula (called ruchetta locally), easily available in our driveway and along the stone walls. We grate parmigiano on top and eat huge mounds. “

Under the Tuscan Sun, Frances Meyers, pg. 23

A poached egg on top of anything is always a good choice!
