Fusilli with chive sauce


Author Notes: It is Fall here in New Zealand so I don't have fresh allium, but I have chives. This sauce is my invention and I make it often, as it is very easy and quick (I can get the chives from my garden and being Italian I always have pasta in the pantry), and I love the color!Alessandra Zecchini
