Buon appetito.


I served this with a bowl of spinach leaves, seasoned with salt and pepper, and finished with a drizzle of Belmorso extra virgin olive oil. For school, I suggest packing this in some baking paper and then putting the baguette into those brown bread bags. You can even use the baguette bag, if it came with one.
