Beef doesn’t only consist of filet. In fact, filet is just one small part of the whole beef! It’s so important to eat other parts as well. Meat shouldn’t be wasted and the killed beef should be treated with respect and gratitude. So go and buy other parts than just the luxury parts of a beef.  This time I went for the shoulder roast. It tastes perfect and it’s even much more economic than the luxury parts. And here’s a trick to make all kinds of meat tender: sous-vide! When you sous-vide meat before putting it on the grill, the meat, including the cheaper sorts, becomes super tender and gets the perfect grilled flavor! But what exactly is sous-vide?

So I love to make pasta and other Italian dishes at home – it always feels a little bit like holidays. And if time permits, i make the pasta by myself. For my zucchini pasta, I just put some zucchini noodles (also called zoodles) to the homemade spelt pasta and top it with some smooth parsley and grated parmesan or even better grated pecorino cheese. If you also like to go with homemade pasta, head over to the „Authentic Italian Pasta“ post to learn how it’s made. INGREDIENTS: pasta, spiralized yellow zucchini noodles, smooth parsley, parmesan or pecorino cheese, olive oil, sea salt
