Maltagliati with Tomatoes, Porcini Mushrooms and Shrimp

Maltagliati with Tomatoes, Porcini Mushrooms and Shrimp by Fabio Bongianni

Ok, today a very flavorful recipe!! Maltagliati means "badly cut" pasta due to their irregular shape! I love Porcini mushrooms and they are abundant in Europe markets during the Summer and Fall.

Autentica " Pasta alla contadina "

Autentica " Pasta alla contadina " by CHEFMAURIZIO

Recipe of Calabria. We are in southern Italy. A recipe that my mother gave me and that I have taken over the tradition. Calabria is known for its natural beauty, but also for the use of chili peppers, very spicy in the area. This recipe is therefore a little spicy. Warning to those who do not like. The recipe is simple.

Brolied scallops

Brolied scallops by Shawnna and Davide Busetti

Again, this recipe has my Venetian mother in law's culinary hand all over it. These scallops are so delicious, they never disappoint. I made them for Christmas dinner, but they are an elegant beginning to a New Year's Eve dinner, or any other culinary occasion. This recipe is simple and delectable. Large scallops are best, not the…

Antipasto di Prosciutto e Melone ( Melon & Prosciutto) by Gone

The contrasting flavors of ham and melon combine in this simple Italian appetizer. A native of northern Italy will place ham slices between slices of melon. His southern cousin prefers his portion of melon whole, side by side on the plate with the prosciutto.

Lemon & Garlic Green Beans

Lemon & Garlic Green Beans by John Spottiswood

It is rare to have a side dish which everyone keeps reaching for instead of the main dish. That's especially true if its a fairly simple green vegetable side. But these green beans were truly that good. We used packaged, thin french cut green beans from Trader Joes. They are tender and tasty on their own, but I've never had them taste…

Italian Meatballs by Salad Foodie

Years ago I had an Italian neighbor who became a close friend. I always commented on her delicious meatballs and one day she shared the recipe with me. I have made them ever since about the same way. You can vary the meats using what's on hand, but I usually select lean ground beef, turkey, chicken or lamb, with an equal amount of…

Tuna Conserva with Tomatoes, Cucumbers, Capers and Bread

Tuna Conserva with Tomatoes, Cucumbers, Capers and Bread by Nate Appleman

Not to be confused with thick Sicilian caponeta made with eggplant, Neopolitan caponeta originated with local sailors who tossed tomatoes with a dash of seawater with the ship's store of hardtack. We have added cucumbers and capers to this simple tomato and bread salad, using baked leftover pizza dough torn into bite sized chunks,…
