Zucchine a scapece

Zucchine a scapece by Frank Fariello

There are four quintessential Italian summer vegetables: tomatoes, peppers, eggplant and zucchini. Of these, zucchini seems to get the least respect, perhaps because zucchini plants are so prolific that the surfeit soon becomes a problem. New zucchini can literally sprout from one day to another, and the production—especially around…

Fagiolini in umido (Green beans in tomato sauce)

Fagiolini in umido (Green beans in tomato sauce) by Frank Fariello

While Sundays dinners at Angelina's house were once-a-week, belly-busting, meaty affairs, she practically lived on vegetables during the week. This was long before vegetarianism went mainstream and she would not have thought of herself as a 'weekday vegetarian' or anything of that sort. It was just the way that she grew up eating in a…

Pere al vino rosso (Pears in Red Wine Sauce)

Pere al vino rosso (Pears in Red Wine Sauce) by Frank Fariello

Dessert is our house is normally a piece of fruit, perhaps with some cheese, and, in winter, some mixed nuts in their shells. This is why you will not find very many desserts featured on this blog. But there is at least one prepared dessert that makes its way on to our table in the colder months: pere al vino rosso, or pears poached…

This is so fast and so simple. It's effortless. It's so delicious you won't believe how good it is until you try it. I didn't. My husband (not vegetarian) loves it! In fact he loves to cook this himself.

Funghi trifolati ("Truffled" mushrooms)

Funghi trifolati ("Truffled" mushrooms) by Frank Fariello

This is one of the easiest and most versatile vegetable dishes in the Italian repertoire: funghi trifolati, or 'truffled' mushooms, so called because the thinly sliced and sautéed mushrooms are said to resemble that other, more highly prized tuber. I use two methods to make funghi trifolati, and both are equally easy:

Vegan Bolognese Spaghetti

Vegan Bolognese Spaghetti by Gourmandelle LifestyleBlog

I love Italian food, especially pasta! This is the well known Bolognese Pasta recipe turned vegan. The texture and taste are almost the same as in the original recipe, which is a great thing! Even better, I used gluten free spaghetti. Hope you'll like it!

Penne ai funghi (Penne with Mushroom and Tomato Sauce)

Penne ai funghi (Penne with Mushroom and Tomato Sauce) by Frank Fariello

Fall is my favorite season, and one of the best reasons to love the Fall is all the wonderful food you get to eat! The sprightly but rather thin dishes of summer give way to more substantial fare: game, soups and stews of all kinds, pumpkin and other squashes, beans, apples, pears and, perhaps best of all, mushrooms! Here's a…

Carciofi alla romana (Roman-style Artichokes)

Carciofi alla romana (Roman-style Artichokes) by Frank Fariello

Dear readers: I am back from my travels, at my blogging post just in time for the first day of Spring. Artichokes are back in season! And is there any vegetable more typical of Roman cooking, perhaps of all Italian cuisine, than the artichoke? What better way to get back to work, then, than this dish, one of the most typically Roman…
