Linguine With Artichoke Hearts And Olives


If you like artichokes and olives, then try this Linguine With Artichoke Hearts And Olives. This is one of my favorite pasta to serve if I am having a light and easy weekday dinner. I had some cherry tomatoes in the fridge and decided to add some into the pasta. Certainly made the pasta looked more appetizing with the vibrant colors. Agree?

  2. Perhaps a really nice glass of white wine from the Veneto or Friuli would pair great with the salad! Cheers~

Dumplings

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up!

Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
