Angelique Gerber, actress and presenter, loves pasta, preferably with tomato sauce and basil.
“I love saucy dishes, tomatoes are healthy and the onions add taste! I always make a light salad with pasta,I cut tomatoes and onions and add coarse salt and pepper and vinegar. This goes perfectly with a heavy meal.”
She believes that no matter what you make, or how simple it is, if it is made with love it will always be delicious to friends, family and loved ones.
