Now it’s the time for cavolo nero, black cabbage .We’ve been already talking about this beautiful typical Tuscan vegetable.
We cook it in Tuscan Ribollita,in Farro Beans Cabbage Soup or we even make a cavolo nero pesto wtih it.Today something simpler to be served next to a meat or fish or cheese dish.It’s extremely filling anyway .It’s even more complete served with some cooked beans on top .
