Well, thanks man!

I've never come to the USA, and surely New York will be my first destination, New Jersey the second one. I mean, I HAVE to visit Buddy Valastro and all the Sopranos' places...

I just have to overcome my terror of flying, Bologna-London is a short jump

Buddy's place took a bad hit from Sandy. You know, Boston is the closest port to Europe. Thus a shorter flying time, and the tickets are cheaper because the landing fees are cheaper.

Go over to France and take the Chunnel to England. Now that would terrify me.

I'm with you, Addie. My son in law has taken the train through the Chunnell a few times. he says it is quite narrow. I'd need something to knock me out before getting on that train.

I've done it a few times and you can't see anything. Its pitch black, like riding a train at night.

Its nothing scary

When I was working, I drove through a tunnel twice a day for over 20 years. Now it's only several times a week lol It's two truck widths wide. No biggie.

I am having a claustrophobia episode just thinking of it. My heart is racing. We have to go through a tunnel to get into Boston proper. I was born in the oldest one, the Sumner Tunnel. I can't go through it during rush hour. I would rather used the Mystic Bridge.

I agree. Half and half is good, as well. Which also reminds me off (pink) vodka tomato sauce over penne, topped with capicola or pancetta.

When tomatoes are in season, my favorite is fresh tomato sauce. In a food processor, puree fresh tomatoes (or San Marzano or Muir Glenn), oil, garlic, salt and pepper. Toss the pasta with the tomato sauce & fresh basil. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. I rub a clove of garlic in the pasta bowls before adding the cooked pasta. Heaven on a plate.

Adding cream to pesto is another way to go. Don't think it's a ny or jersey concoction. It's been around for awhile.
