The Right Pasta

To celebrate the continued success of his idol Silvio Berlusconi, small Sicilian pasta maker, Benito Destroni, has created a new type of ravioli in his honour.

“I love Silvio.  What he has done for Italy, for Italian television, and for the glory of Italy.”, said Mr Destroni, from his little pasta shop in one of the back streets of downtown Palermo.  He continued, “Because for me Silvio is the Italian Napoleon, I wanted him to greet me when I sit down for a nice bowl of my favourite ravioli – that’s why I created my own special ‘Silvioli’ pasta.”.

Apparently Mr Destroni begins every meal with the words ‘Buon appetito il presidente’.

One day when friends were at Mr Destroni’s house for dinner, Destroni’s wife, Sinistra, cooked up a plate of this curious looking ravioli.  Destroni’s friends were so impressed that they begged him to make and sell the very same pasta in his Palermo store.  And so he did.

Now, Destroni’s original Silvioli ravioli is gracing the plates of many of the best homes in Palermo.  When you see this ravishing ravioli, you will no doubt lust to sample it too.
