This pasta dish is made with angel hair pasta cooked al dente. It is a favorite along the Amalfi Coast of Italy. The shrimp are roasted in the oven on high heat to perfection. The pasta is light with a wonderful lemon flavor. The whole family will love this delicious dish from Italy.
Watch the YouTube video below to see how easy it is to make:
The Coronavirus has hurt us all. Even if we are healthy, we are in lockdown. Lockdown is good because it keeps the spread of the virus to a minimum. We get depressed because we are social animals and need social interactions. The internet, FB and apps like Zoom allow us to socialize at a distance but it is not the same as being with family and friends.
In the US we are lifting some restrictions on the lockdown to get the economy going again. I do not agree with this since many needless people will die.
For those of us that are travelers, we have anxiety over not being able to travel to the countries we love so much. My YouTube VLOG below takes you through planning a vacation in 2021 if this fall proves that the virus is not on the rise.
Next to airfare, hotels will be your biggest cost. If your staying for an extended period of time, they may be the biggest cost of the trip. You first have to decide on:
Is it a special occasion like a honeymoon where you want an expensive hotel with nice amenities and views.
Are you independently wealthy and the price is of no concern
Are you visiting Italy to see the country, the people, etc. In this case you will only be sleeping in your hotel room. The small Italian hotels will work fine and give you more of a sense of being in Italy.
Hotels, like anywhere, change price seasonally and as they become more popular. Shop and see what the prices are. DO NOT PAY EXTRA for breakfast! Breakfast in Italy, as the Italians do it, is the cheapest and easiest meal. Go to the nearest bar (they are everywhere) and order an espresso, cappuccino, latte or coffee Americano and a sweet roll. This will cost you 2 Euros outside the big cities and maybe 5 Euros in the cities. Italians usually choose a cornetto. This is a small roll that can be plain, filled with chocolate, jam or cream.
What ever you choose, enjoy Italy. Do not try to do too much. Be an Italian while you are there. You do not need Hot Dogs, Hamburgers and eggs! Eat like the Italians which is so much more healthy for you.
Italy has one of the world’s most efficient healthcare systems. The World Health Organization rates countries on their over all health. Italy’s healthcare system focuses on exercise, happiness and healthy food rather than drugs. The people of this country eat well and eat fresh organic produce that is grown or farmed near their own home. Fruit is seldom shipped but picked locally at the height of freshness and nutrients. It tastes better and is healthier for you.

The USA was rated 33 on the least healthiest countries in the world.
We should take a lesson on this from Italy. Not only is it a country on everyone bucket list but it gives us a great example how to live a happy and healthy life.
La passeggiata is the Italian walk. Italians eat well and stay healthy in many ways:
They eat organic natural foods
They cook food correctly
They eat fruits and vegetables
They exercise via walks each day
Walking is one of the best exercises you can do. Humans were explorers and walked a lot throughout their history. Modern humans tend to sit in cars, in front of computers and watching TV. Get up with your family and friends and walk. Walking each day ensures you can still walk as you age!
