I trulli di Alberobello

This, in the picture, is Alberobello, meaning -beautiful tree-. An image that may seem out of place on an Italian menu, but your host, Roberto and his family, come from this picturesque village in southern Italy, from a typical house of that area called -Trullo-. Hope you like it !

An Italian tip for your cooking:
Asparagus Pasta col Pesto

Ingredients

3 cloves garlic, minced 1/4 to 1/2 cup olive oil (do not substitute) 1 cup chopped or sliced asparagus (use only the tender half or tips)(asparagus can be substituted with broccoli, string beans (green beans) or zucchini) 1/8 cup chopped onion (red or yellow) 1/4 to 1/2 cup fresh basil, finely chopped 8 ounces pasta noodles of your choice grated Parmesan cheese

Directions

Quick Pesto Sauce: Saute garlic, onion, and basil in olive oil until the garlic and onion turns light brown. Do not over cook. Set aside and keep warm. Prepare the pasta of your choice according to package directions except for the following: Add 1 to 2 cups additional water. Just before water begins to boil, add the asparagus or the vegetables of your choice. When the water begins to boil add the pasta and cook according to directions Drain the pasta and vegetable mixture and pour the pesto sauce over the top, tossing lightly to coat. Top with parmesan cheese and serve. You can also serve the pasta direct from the cooking pot to the plates and then add the pesto. This eliminates having to wash another bowl. Serve with French bread and have additional parmesan cheese available at the table.
