Fantastic Firsts- Chef Francesco Fusco's Pasta and Peas, Il Moera-Ristorante -Orto (Av)

A relaxing afternoon in Irpinia.  Green Irpinia as it's lovingly nicknamed.  And anyone who has been there understands why. The territory in the spring and summer is rich, lush, verde.
Halfway through my meal at Il Moera -Ristorante -Orto in Avella (Av), Chef Francesco Fusco brought this dish to my table.  Colorful, flavorful, rich in fresh ingredients, many from the restaurant's garden.

Pasta mista- mixed pasta enveloped in a creamy pea sauce.  The chef added carmelized ramata/copper onions from nearby Montoro.  Fusco sprinkled crushed pistachios on top as well as dried edible flowers.

Pasta is a girls best friend...
