NOTES : Pasta with tomatoes, spinach, olive oil and lemon. On Elba we drove
up the winding roads through forests of chestnut to reach a small
restaurant, and cooler air and the sweet smells of thyme, rosemary,
oregano, and mint. In the old, quiet hilltop villages the men sit as they
always have, in tree-shaded squares. The local wine we had with this pasta
was light, white, and dry.
