What is your favorite Italian dish or dishes?
Ohhh,this could be a very long list. But my very most favorites are my homemade lasagna,spaghetti with meat sauce,chicken parmesan,baked penne pasta with sweet italin sausage and provel cheese melted on top.And of course Pizza!!
My Italian grandmother's recipe for ravioli with homemade tomato sauce. My parents used to make this every Chistmas eve, and we would have it for Christmas dinner. Mom would make the filling of meat, squash, spinach and spices, and also the tomato sauce, started with pork or chicken neckbones, and stewed all day. Dad would make the pasta, and we girls would help him make the ravioli on the kitchen table. It is very rich, and the best pasta dish in the whole world. If a restaurant served this dish, foks would line up around the block to get in to have some of this ravioli. Gosh, my mouth is watering thinking about it.
Eggplant parmesan. garlic bread.
My sister makes the most delicious antipasto, she has moved across the country, though, so I never get it anymore.
pasta carbonarra is really good I also like spanokopita
baked ziti and chicken parm
I make a lot of Italian food because my dad is Italian and a lot of recipes were passed down to me.
A few of my favorites are Eggplant Parmesan, which I just made the other night. I bake the eggplant instead of fry it.
Another that I make around the holidays is stuffed shells.
For an everyday meal sausage in peppers floating in red sauce.
Minestrone Soup - Love it. The recipe has tons of oregano and that is something I can grow and dry. It has become the 'day after the holiday' favorite in my house - easy, light and filling.
