Valentine’s day fettuccine
Some people consider it a marketing gimmick, other people don’t even want to hear about it and there are people who see it as an occasion to celebrate the lovers. For sure, Valentine’s day is a day that doesn’t leave indifferent. Beyond personal stories and believes, in any case Valentine’s day may be a special day to celebrate every form of love, the love for ourselves, the love for our relatives and parents, for the sons, for the partners. And love can also be demonstrated by serving healthy and respectful food, such as today’s fettuccine, prepared with a special sauce that is a powerful source of antioxidants and anti inflammatory substances and protective for the heart thanks to saffron and rosemary. And if you consider that rosemary is, since ancient Egypt, the symbol of love that overcomes all the obstacles representing the bond between Isis and Osiris, ok… the fettuccine of health and love are served!
