This dish is one of my favorite childhood memories. As all of my friends wanted macaroni and cheese, I would always ask for this. Topped with some lightly toasted breadcrumbs or croutons makes one of the simplest starter there is. The sauce will take less time than the pasta takes to cook. The addition of Red Palm gives you a boost of Vitamin A and E with a more complex flavor.
Fresh herbs, onion and pancetta pair wonderfully with Brussels sprouts. This vegetable is made better by the cool weather of fall and early winter. -- Chef Gerard Viverito
