The words to the above are a part of the lyrics from “O Sole Mio” and when I hear them in my head, they are always in Luciano Pavarotti’s magnificent voice. I finally read an English translation of the this song and oh my they pretty much swept me off of my feet and I am NOT easily swept. I mean, just read this translation:
What a beautiful thing is a sunny day!
It’s upon your face!
When night comes and the sun has gone down.
Ho O O O ly Moly!!!!!!!!!!! Just makes you swoon, doesn’t it? Swoon and eat Italian food for the rest of your life.
I won’t swear that this recipe is Italian, but it does have the words ‘pesto’ and ‘pasta’ in the title. So, that must mean something, right? Plus, I use garlic, olive oil, and basil in the recipe and those are certainly a part of the Italian culinary culture. And if you’re worried about eating garlic and life ending up less romantic than the song portrays…hello…garlic for two takes care of that issue. One romantically swooning person eating garlic + one romantically swooning person eating garlic = 2 romantically swooning people who are not detecting any garlic on their partner in swoon.
Gosh, I’m funny.
