Kristy Austin

The Italians may have as much chance at the Rugby World Cup as we do at Formula 1, but they sure know how to make their complex carbohydrates match up to a good vino. Here's a great way to indulge...

  • Handful Italian Parsley


  • Bring large pot of salted water to boil
  • Cook fettuccine until al dente (approximately 7-8 minutes)
