Italian Style Pasta

Okay, so I recently saw a video on YouTube on how to make Italian only using $10. I thought it looked actually pretty decent so I gave it a go! ( I have linked the video at the bottom of the blog post).

Now what was included in the video, it can be adjusted depending on where you live. For example, I don’t live in America I live in Britain so the names of the products or the brand changed. But here is the recipe, just adjust it for yourself!

Ingredients:

  • 500g fusilli
  • 480g jar of Lasagna creamy, white sauce
  • 480g jar of Tomato pasta sauce
  • 400-500g of Turkey mince
  • 226g of shredded mozzarella.
  • Basil
  • Parsley
  • Salt and Pepper

Method:

Start by boiling your pasta in a big pan. Then in a frying pan, start cooking your mince, sprinkle your seasoning.

Once your pasta has been fully cooked, empty into a big mixing bowl. Add the fully cooked mince and the two jars of sauce and mix it all together.

Using a spoon, spoon it all into a big glass dish and sprinkle the mozzarella on top. Whack it into the oven at 170C or 350F for 15-20 mins.

Dish up and enjoy with salad and some garlic bread!!

Italy 2018, Part 4

Part 4! This is one of my favourite posts I have done. Reason: I have always been fascinated by the history of Pompeii. I look at videos such as this one part of the Melbourne Winter Masterpieces exhibition in 2009 held at Melbourne Museum: A Day in Pompeii.

It always fascinates me how quickly it happened. Even though it started at 8AM, there was no way that anyone could have escaped the affects of the eruption.

This eruption of Vesuvius changed the landscape forever, and as the video goes on to say, it changed it so much that within a few years they couldn’t even work out where Pompeii was buried. All that history, and life, destroyed and buried by the power of nature.

DAY 9

Tuesday 19th

Laura was our tour guide once again and it took us an hour to reach the foot of Mount Vesuvius from the other side of the bay. Pompeii was so much better than I had anticipated! Being there in person was a completely different experience than looking at pictures.

There were more brothels than I thought there would have been. There was a street that was purely for prostitution. Our tour guide took us around said brothels and the beds were made out of stone. In the corridors leading to the rooms there were pornographic art on the ceiling. Me and my younger brother decided we didn’t want to see this so we kept our heads down.

We passed temples, various bakeries and bathing houses. We even saw famous human remains of people who died back in this tragic event.

Above is a picture diary of our day in Pompeii. I hope you enjoy!

Day 10

Wednesday 19th

On our last day of the holiday, we visited the Cinema Teatro Armida. We had the opportunity to enjoy the excellent performance of the famous dance – The Tarantella.

It was so uplifting, the dancing, singing and the use of the tambourines made you want to tap your foot and dance along with them on the stage.

If you get the opportunity to enjoy it, I would strongly recommend you go!

Here is the link to their facebook page: Cinema https://www.facebook.com/cinemateatroarmida/

Down below is a little sneak peek of the performance taken on my phone that I thought you might enjoy:

This is the last of this series! It has been fun to look back on the holiday with my family. Thank you to those who read through my first Holiday series. I hope you enjoyed it.
