Fusilli Chorizo and Summer Tomato

So my cooktop broke at the same time I was to start cooking again. Today, a magic gas man work his airy talents and skills. And we are back in business...

I miss having a bit of a free time to do stuff.

I miss having to cook again, with all the available fresh ingredients I love and the kitchen I cherish.

I miss pasta.
