2. How do you pronounce “cavatelli”?

3. How do you pronounce “gnocchi”?
- I used to say "no-chi" but my mother corrected me - noh-kee. Italians say nyawk-kee. (Source:

4. Share a recipe that calls for mozzarella cheese.
- That's easy. My favorite is baked aubergine (eggplant) with mozzarella cheese, tomato sauce and some herbs. Delish!
