Delightfully Fresh Herbs

essential Italian cooking herbs
Time for a roast?
I met one of my new students to give her a packet, so she could begin her Italian language sudies, and she surprised me with a beautiful bouquet of fresh herbs–prezzemolo (parsley), salvia (sage), rosmarino (rosemary), timo (thyme) and alloro (bay leaves)! The perfect group of flavors with which to get excited about some Italian cooking. I decided that the pork tenderloin that was waiting for me at home was more than deserving of an herb crust…and that’s exactly what happened later that evening. A tray of veggies was roasted and all was placed on a bed of mashed red potatoes… La cena è pronta!
