The Del Monte Blogger Recipe Carnival Entry

I am a big big fan of Italian food and Italian herbs. If I have to cook any food other than Indian I will definitely choose Italian.  After blogging for some time I have been always interested in taking part in cooking events and one such is The Del Monte Blogger Recipe Carnival announced in Indiblogger   site . To know more Click facebook page.

Probably only after Del Monte ‘s launch in India ,the usage of Italian food in our day to day life has shown a tremendous popularity.

I was introduced to Del Monte  through their juices and now the products have a wide spectrum from sauces to salsa’s to olives to pasta’s.

I buy at least one or the other Del  Monte product  every month and Its always there in my pantry.  Now we don’t have to goto a fancy dining to eat Italian, Thanks to Del Monte for making it available from Italy to our home

My contribution to this carnival is  my  All Veggie  Pasta
