Slang for pasta and green beans, Pasta e Vaianeia is a traditional Italian dish from the small southern town of Molochio, Italy. Dr. Valter Longo, biochemist and creator of ProLon, grew up eating this dish. He says, “We used to eat it about five times a week. I think it was the perfect meal because it has a little bit of everything. I remember we used to always complain, ‘Not again! Not this thing again!’ But that’s all we ate all the time.”
These ingredients are what the people of Molochio, a town known for its incredible longevity, have been eating for hundreds of years. They often paired their pastas with dark, whole bread.
