Spaghetti

Spaghetti : Image from stock art created by Inky Using Painter Essentials 7

Sent headlong into the boiling water

Pasta long and thin took a bit of a hot bath

As it did, the concoction it was being served with

Gradually came together, as minced beef met up in a

Hot tomato jacuzzi with onion , carrot and mushroom

Eventually,

Turned out onto plates and sauce and pasta

Twirled together round a trident aided by a spoon

Italian cuisine turned out on Mancunian plates

Hidden chillis

Hiding in plain sight on your pizza

Innocent looking vegetable, scattered among the pepperoni

Divided by red onion and tomatoes, that ain’t no sweet pepper!

Devilish kick, and a rise in heat

Encapsulating the tongue

No wonder you’re sweating.

Take me there

Authentic

give me a taste of italy

wi fresh pasta, tomatoes and herbs

make that sauce sing

serve it up with

grated Parmesan and lemon

and juicy green olives

taking me to Napoli or Bologna

without the need of a plane ticket

Calzone

Salford 13th April 2018

Bella Italia , Lowry outlet mall, Salford Quays

Take a pizza base

Make it nice and thick

Cover it in the richest tomatoes

You can lay your hands on

Red bell peppers and juicy onions

add meats of your choosing

Or even more veg

Throw in a little pesto if you wish

But don’t forget the cheese

Fold it up like a Cornish pastie

And let it catch a Neapolitan tan

Before cracking open it’s golden crust as

treasures are uncovered and steam released

Releasing the tasty fillings that lie inside

Prepared by the finest hands

Allied with flavours of the region

Succent Tomatoes, mix with the finest herbs and mozzarella

To create a sensation fit for any Italian town

And Ham, Salami and Olives enhance the taste
