JohnnyCiao! I’m Johnny La Pasta. No; La Pasta is not my true last name. Johnny La Pasta was a nickname bestowed upon me by my friends to better capture who I am: a man on a mission to inspire others to eat, drink, be merry, and indulge in the simple joys in life. I am a firm believer that at the end of the day, we all just want to be with those whom we love, with good food, and lots of laughter; and if we all valued these things above treasures and status, we’d be a much happier peoples. This blog is part of an effort to inspire that kind of living. I am a Foodie, a Yogi, a Writer, a Laugher, and a Lover. You will see me fulfill all these roles throughout the course of this blog.
