Tonight, prepared for a little recipe 2 girlfriends, who came to play tasty. They asked me how I was creating my recipes. For her, I went green shells with vegetables, I've come across in the supermarket. As I wanted to play on the green, I thought to associate them with peas and pesto and I added ricotta to add flavor.

And now, you know all the history of my gratin green shells to coppa!
