Italian Meatballs

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…

Sometimes my food experiments go right and this one certainly did: an every day meatball kicked up a notch with bacon! Preparation time is reduced by using pre-sliced mushrooms and prepared sauce.

Authentic Italian Rice Balls (Arancini)

Authentic Italian Rice Balls (Arancini) by ChaCha Can Cook

This recipe comes from Evelyn Cipriano who was a wonderful cook. She was very "Old School" Italian, and even made mozzarella cheese from scratch. The better the ingredients you use, the better the results. I made an "amped-up" version by adding sandwich pepperoni, procuito, provolone, & salami with Angus ground round. Fabulous!…

Authentic Bolognese Sauce

Authentic Bolognese Sauce by Darina Kopcok

Bolognese sauce is often thought to be a tomato-based meat sauce, but a true bolognese actually has very little tomato. It is also served with tagliatelle noodles instead of spaghetti, or tucked in between the layers of the green lasagna Bologna is famous for. Tagliatelle are similar to fettuccine, and are used because a broader…

Sliced Seared Steak (Tagliata di Manzo)

Sliced Seared Steak (Tagliata di Manzo) by daniellec1

Buy a little good quality steak and prepare it very quickly in a cast iron skillet with rosemary sprigs and garlic cloves. Amazing - you can make it for guests - and requires almost no preparation. Lightly smash the garlic cloves and the peels will come off easily. Add a salad or vegetable or potato dish on the side.

This is a take on a food truck recipe I saw on television. They can be used as an appetizer or as a main dish. I served them with Roman Rice Balls, Red Sauce, grilled squash and a salad. I found the corndog sticks on In retrospect I would change the way I made them. I was not sure the meatballs would get hot in…

Braised Beef & Tortellini with Marsala Wine Sauce by Katie J.

I had this same meal at Olive Garden and had to come home and find a similiar recipe- I found a recipe that was close but after making it a few times I have tweaked it and made it my own- adding a lot less of a few things and throwing in a few extra things too! Enjoy : )

Barciole. Italian for "good freaking food" by Michael Swiney

However you want to pronounce it, and I have heard several ways...Bar'cola...Bar'cio...Bar-joel....what ever, it is a good and easy recipe that most make with Flank Steak. I remember growing up that my mother used to use make Flank because it was a cheaper cut of meat. Nowadays, it is one of the pricer. A thin sirloin is a good choice…

We’ve all enjoyed it as snacks on crackers and cheese sauce, but they wanted to try some of our cooking magic as an entrée. Patti thought her lasagna would put the cheeses to a delicious…
