Grass & Cooking in Italy

I’ve been exploring some of the historical sights around Siracusa and also paying close attention to the types of grasses that grow here. At the Teatro Greco, I found common bermudagrass in most open areas, with some seashore paspalum in the drainage from the nymphaeum

And I find it quite pleasant to stay at an apartment with a kitchen, for I can turn my attention to the culinary sphere at the drop of a pen, literally. For dinner last evening I cooked some penne, and added some sun-dried Sicilian cherry tomato (purchased from the morning market), and some fresh basil, and some pesto.
