After joining IFC Iam exploring a lot of cuisines, this month its Campania in Italy. Priya Suresh a versatile blogger and my dear friend chose some beautiful dishes to try out, out of all the first I am going to try is Spaghetti Alla Puttanesca. A very delicious Pasta dish, I made a little changes in the recipe instead of anchovies and capers I used a teaspoon each of dried parsley, basil n oregano. One could prepare them in a jiffy.
