Spontaneos herbs and plants
Feeding oneself thanks to the recognition and gathering of wild spontaneous herbs and plants (fitoalimurgia) is also possible during summer months, as in winter.

Making fresh pasta at home is an ancient history: from the pastry rolled with a rolling pin, were obtained already many years ago noodles, lasagne, ravioli and tortellini.
Today there are few women and men, because of time, never enough, who delight to prepare a bowl of noodles with homemade fresh pasta by hand.
But still, if you do the math, at the end, it does not take much time to prepare a good pasta, the ingredients are well mixed, in fact you are working in 15-20 minutes, 30 minutes is the time that the dough should be at rest, 15 minutes time you need to roll out the dough and get the dough.
