  • Ricotta Gnocchi with Browned Butter and Fried Basil

    These easy-to-prepare gnocchi come together in just minutes and offer the satisfaction of something that took all day to prepare. Browed butter and crispy fried basil up the flavor factor without any added fuss and turn this Italian staple into a gourmet meal.

  • Veal Osso Buco

    Veal Osso Buco is the perfect cold weather dish. It’s rich and hearty and filled with tomatoes, vegetables and a splash of dry white wine. Perfect when served next to buttery mashed potatoes.

    Individual size pizzas topped with creamy mozzarella, bitter broccoli rabe and sweet golden garlic make a robustly flavorful, impressive focus for a meatless meal.

  • Polpettone, Italian Beef & Veal Meatloaf in Dry Vermouth

    Polpettone is an Italian-style meatloaf made with veal, beef and pancetta. The lack of any tomato sauce and the addition of the grated Parmesan cheese along with the lemon zest, cinnamon and touch of nutmeg in the loaf may seem a bit odd at first but once you taste it, you’ll realize this dish is an easy centerpiece for an Italian feast.

  • Bacon and Leek Arancini (Fried Risotto Balls)

    This updated version of the classic Sicilian fried cheese-stuffed rice balls are coated with Panko bread crumbs, a Japanese style bread crumb that stays crunchy and crisp when fried. If you can’t find them at the grocery store you can always substitute regular bread crumbs in its place.

  • Florentine Stuffed Baby Peppers

    It looks especially nice to leave the stems on when you halve the baby peppers. Other greens may be used in place of the spinach; just be sure to cook them until they are tender.

  • Asparagus and Saffron Risotto

    I like to think of risotto as a contemplative dish. You don’t have to think too hard about what you’re doing, none of the steps are difficult or technical, but you have to stay close by, stirring gently. It gives you time to think. And when it’s done, you have a dish that has an air of sophistication. Perfect for a dinner party, but easy enough for a family dinner.

  • Stuffed Artichokes

    Stuffed artichokes can be quite challenging to make if you keep them whole. But if you cut them in half, they’re much easier to prepare, and they’re not quite the same huge portion, making them more appropriate for a first course. You can use any Italian spice mix you like, or use oregano, basil, or a mix of the two. For the cheese, use what you like. Provolone, Parmesan, Asiago, or an aged mozzarella would be fine. Or a mix.

  • Italian Wedding Soup

    There are countless variations on this soup, which—contrary to popular belief, is named for the way the flavors of the greens and meat marry so well (and not for the occasions on which it is served). But go ahead—serve it at a wedding to symbolize the harmony you’ll experience in life together.
