Pasta alla Pizzaiola al Forno – Baked Pasta Pizza-Style

This is a recipe that I didn’t prepare since a while, don’t ask me why because I used to love it 🙂 It’s a simple recipe, with ingredients which are very common in Italian recipes, and they are the ingredients used to top a good pizza, that’s why it has this name. What makes it…

Pizza al Taglio – Home Pizza (Light and Easy to Digest!)

I’ve been always fascinated by leavened products, I mean the good ones where it’s used just the enough amount of yeast/sourdough and then you have to take care of the dough for long hours, waiting/hoping that it will develop well 🙂 it’s always a magic moment to see it growing with so little yeast. Pizza…

Spaghetti alla Nerano – Spaghetti with Zucchini in the Style of Nerano

What I’m going to show today is one of the most iconic recipes of Sorrento Coast/Capri island. If I say “pasta with zucchini” it might sound easy and simple (and for sure there are older “recipes” than this one, considering the simplicity of the ingredients), but in this case it’s not really like that 🙂…

Parmigiana di Melanzane (Eggplant Parmigiana)

Here it is another wonderful summer recipe from southern Italy, especially from Campania and Sicily regions (they both claim the authenticity of the recipe, of course 😀 and also the city of Parma has some claims, but it’s not 100% clear the exact origin). Definitely one of the best recipes representing the summer and the good…

Gnocchi alla Sorrentina – Sorrento Style Gnocchi

Have you ever tried this traditional recipe from Sorrento (and extended to the Naples area)? If the answer is no, then you definitely should 🙂 I prepared them together with my wife, it might sound a bit long to prepare, but it’s not too complicated and what’s more important it’s very very good 🙂 The…

Pesto alla Genovese

We are in September, soon the weather will get worse, and in the garden there is still a lot of basil….what to do with it? An original Pesto, of course 🙂 What is the Pesto? The word “pesto” comes from the word “pestare“, which is the movement with the traditional tool (called “pestello“) to make pesto. So…

Lardiata Napoletana

This is a very old and traditional pasta recipe from Naples area (or probably from Cilento, a near mountain area), which nowadays maybe has been a bit “lost”, because of the fact many people are looking for “light” food, but no one told us to eat this kind of dishes everyday, right? 😀 so why…

Gazpacho Andaluz

As I said in the previous post, I came back right now from Spain, and since I’m still in a kind of spanish mood, what’s better than a gazpacho in a hot summer evening to keep staying in this spanish mood? 🙂 Gazpacho, like many other popular and traditional recipes, has for sure different variations,…

Caprese (Buffalo Mozzarella salad)

This is one of the best things to eat when the weather it’s hot and you just want something refreshing and not heavy, no doubts about it 🙂 And look at it and its colors! That’s Italy! 🙂 Let me say that I cannot call this a “recipe”, because basically this is just assembling few…
