Skirt Steak Roll, with Ragusano Cheese and Bell Peppers

I think I already wrote in other posts how much I love the skirt steak, with its very beefy flavor and also good prices 🙂 Normally I prefer to keep my steaks simple, but this time I decided to make a roll with it, since its shape helps for this kind of preparation, and I…

Pasta with Yellow Zucchini and Crunchy Cured Ham

Between the summer vegetables zucchini are for sure between the ones I used the most. This year we decide to try to grow in our garden a particular yellow type, not really a rarity but definitely it’s a type of zucchini that you don’t really see often in the shops and markets. The taste is…

Pasta alla Gricia

After having already wrote about Carbonara and Amatriciana, here it is another classic recipe of the Roman cuisine: the Pasta alla Gricia. This is the simplest of the 3, indeed only 4 ingredients are required: pasta, guanciale, pepper and Pecorino cheese. But if apparently it might seem an easy recipe, to obtain the best result…

Cavatelli with Peperoni Cruschi and Pecorino

This is the kind of authentic Italian recipes I love: few good quality ingredients and simplicity 🙂 It’s a typical recipe of Lucania, an area mostly part of Basilicata region, and the fact I managed to find also the Pecorino of Moliterno made it really authentic 🙂 But the main ingredient is the peperone crusco,…

Pasta with Potatoes, Provola Cheese and ‘Nduja

After the previous recipe “Pasta with ‘Nduja“, here it is another recipe with this unique ingredient typical of Calabria region. And this is really a scrumptious recipe, with some stingy cheese too 🙂 The basic recipe is about the same of the famous Neapolitan “Pasta e patate“, and I simply added the nduja, that of…

Pasta with Puntarelle

Puntarelle are one of the interesting vegetables available in this season. Where I come from, northern Italy, they are not very common, but in central and southern Italy they are widely used, especially in Lazio region where the stems and shoots are eaten raw in a salad, simply seasoned with olive oil, anchovies and garlic….

Beetroot Risotto – Risotto alla Barbabietola

This is not only a good recipe, but also beautiful 🙂 let’s tell the truth, its color is amazing and it can always surprise positively your guests 🙂 It’s a simple recipe (if you are already used to make risotto), with simple ingredients, and if you like this particular winter vegetable for sure you are…

Sfincione Palermitano

This is one the most famous street foods of the city of Palermo, Sicily. At a first sight it might look like a pizza, but it’s more like a focaccia. It has a very soft dough, thanks also to the little fat used, it’s spongy, it’s usually thick, and it’s topping it’s very tasty 🙂…

Appenzeller Chäshörnli

This is one of those “very winter” recipes 🙂 I managed to accidentally find here the Appenzeller cheese (a cheese with a 700 years history), which is a very good mountain cheese from Switzerland, more precisely of the Appenzell canton, so I thought that this recipe would be perfect. There are 3 types of this…

Casunziei Ampezzani – Traditional Filled Pasta, with Beetroot

Here it is a very interesting traditional recipe, typical of the mountain area of Veneto and Trentino Alto Adige regions (more specifically the so called Ladinia), more in particular this is the most common version in the Valle d’Ampezzo area. Because like all the traditional recipes, there are variants (in this case also completely different) changing from…
