An italian dinner...

I have been working on Italian cuisine today. Ira has asked me to prepare a nice Italian dinner for her Toscana house, so after a little research on Tuscan recipes here it is:

 
For appetizers: green and black olives, and 2 different focaccia breads, one with herbs and one with olives...




Delicious spaghetti al dente with tomato sauce and basil...



and a crispy roasted pork with Italian herbs and vegetables...



As for the dessert...a mouthwatering panacota with forest fruits...





Dear Ira, I hope you like your menu!
