2015 is ending and New Year’s Eve is almost on us…You are probably organising the night and tossing up between dishes more or less caloric and traditionally festive … the inevitable lentils and cotechino, Pandoro sweet cake and panettone, as well as dishes that can be prepared in advance and warmed up at the last minute.

At the Farm, there’s a party atmosphere and our New Year’s menu will include a really tasty recipe. Baked pasta, but with wheat flour!
