Italian food lovers stand up.  A tale of two pastas makes a fantastic lunch or dinner.  In Rome, it is not uncommon to be served two different pastas on one plate but I have rarely seen it served that way outside of Italy.

The two different sauces can be served with the same type pasta or more true to tradition, serve tagliatelle with the bolognese and a shaped pasta for the pesto.  If preparing this menu for a lunch, do the salad on the side with the pasta course, and if for for dinner, make it the starter.

Tiramsu is relatively easy to make but a bit fiddle-y.  Always a good option to buy a good one at a local Italian store or find some Italian cookies, biscotti, and serve with gelato or a sorbet.
