My dear friends,
this is my newsletter number four, I’m still strong and safe and the spiriti is good.
I hope that all off you are well, even if I know that everyone is struglling with the lockdown (in different ways, according to the government rules).
In Italy it seems that the curve is going flat, so that means that probably we are starting with the decrease of the infection.
Unfortunately they say that the lockdown must stay active for a long time more. Today they were talking about the 14th of Maya s probable day for the start of the Phase 2.
That’s necessasry to limit the risk of a recidive.
So, it seems that we need to keep patient and stay home.
I have to say that is getting harder every day, but we know it’s the right thing to do.
I’m worried much more for the economy system, which is going to get weaker after this long lockdown.
But, I prefere to be optimist and think positive.
As Tilly asked me after my last newsletter, I’m going to give you the Pasta all’arrabbiata recipe.
Pasta all’arrabbiata for 4 people
360 gr penne rigate
380 gr tomatoes (pelati)
a clove of garlic
Take the peeled tomatoes and mash them with a fork.
Chop the dried chilli with a knife, or crumble it with your hands.
Put a little bit of olive oil in a pan and fry the garlic clove with the chilli pepper, then add the tomatoes.
Then cover with a lid and cook for about 12 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Drain the pasta (al dente) and transfer it directly to the sauce; skip it for a moment and add a a tea spoon of cooking water to have a nice mix.
Take the garlic off
Add the chopped parsley, mix one last time and serve your penne all'arrabbiata still hot.
If you like chilli, don’t hesitate with it ;-)
Everytime I send this email, so many of you get back to me, telling me about their own situation or just encouraging me.
My friend Boyd sent me his own trainer from New Mexico, and that’s a really special thing.
I just wanted to thank you all off you. I think this my idea makes all of us closer and closer and that’s so important. We are all on the same boat with this mess, but, as I always say: We Will Ride Again, which means so many different things.
Thank you my friends.
I’ll write you soon.
