ma che belle foto, le gondole affascinano sempre, eleganti e silenziose scivolano sotto i ponti veneziani. Noi abbiamo prenotato ^_____^ questa pasta è davvero un esempio di manualità fantasiosa !!!!

Simona Carini

Grazie Martissima :) Attendo dettagli.


Bello vedere le foto della città dove vivo con questa pasta così particolare


Such a fun recipe with the slow roasted tomatoes.

Frank @Memorie di Angelina

What a lovely pasta! I doubt I'd have the patience to make it myself, however. Do you deliver by any chance... ?

Simona Carini

I have not yet started my pasta making and delivery service, Frank. When I do, I'll certainly let you know. I am glad you also think it is a pretty shape.


Simona, ma tuo marito è consapevole della fortuna che ha ad averti sposato?
no, dico, questi sono piccoli preziosi capolavori!!!!
che bellezza che sono tesoro!

Simona Carini

Grazie Sandra, sei gentilissima, come al solito. Mio marito e' ben consapevole.

G'day What a great post I enjoyed reading today and congrats in also completing this month's Cook The Books Club challenge too Simona!
Cheers! Joanne

Rachel @ The Crispy Cook

Lovely photography, as always, Simona. I enjoyed this little snapshot trip to Venice's canals.

Simona Carini

Thank you, Joanne!

Thank you, Rachel :)

Alicia (foodycat)

Beautiful pasta and very beautiful pictures of Venice. You are right, those oarlocks are a work of art.

Simona Carini

Thank you, Alicia. If all goes well, I'll be in Venice soon and plan to take a lot of photos.


I need a return trip to Venice. Beautiful photography Simona, and what patience on those knots!

Camilla @ Culinary Adventures

I couldn't afford a gondola ride when I was there. Vaporetti were more in my budget. So, I never noticed those forcole. They are cool looking. Great nodi also!

Wendy, A Day in the Life on the Farm

Thank you so much for sharing all of your photos and memories with us not to mention this wonderful recipe.

Simona Carini

Thank you, Claudia. Patience is indeed in the list of ingredients for this one.

You are welcome, Wendy.

Deb in Hawaii

Wonderful post Simona--I loved seeing your photos. I am in awe of your pasta knots--I fear I lack both the patience and the dexterity to make something so lovely. ;-)

Simona - Loved your photos of Venice! I enjoyed the visual sights as much as the food myself. And for your pasta -- wonderful as always -- Cathy

Simona Carini

Thank you, Deb. Glad you enjoyed the photos of Venice. Making pasta helps me relax. It's a meditative task: after a while my hands kind of know what to do.


I remember reading A Thousand Days in Venice, a few years ago. I enjoyed it. I enjoy watching you make pasta. I think making those knots may be a little hard to do but you make it seem easy. :-) I like the way you dressed it with the tomatoes. They look delicious. I also like Twain's The Innocents Abroad. One of my favorite quotes is in that book. I never paid attention to the forcola or even the gondola before. I will next time. Fascinating! :-)

Simona Carini

Grazie, Mila.

Indeed, Val.

Next time you visit Venice, Camilla :)

Thanks Cathy. There will be more photos coming soon.

Thank you, Paz. Having just come back from Venice, I will soon have more to say about the city and the forcole.

Honey @HoneyUncharted

This is such a cute idea! thanks for sharing :)
i am definitely going to try it out :)


Simona Carini

Hello Honey and thanks for your comment. I am glad you like my knots. I hope you give this pasta shape a try and I hope you'll have fun with it.
