Italian Recipes

Appetizers & Salads

Tonno y Fagioli TONNO Y FAGIOLI (Tuna and Beans)
Tuna and Beans – Italian style. Tonno y Fagioli is usually served as an appetizer or salad course, but sometimes I serve it for dinner.
Appetizer, Fish, Italian

Bruschetta ROASTED TOMATO BRUSCHETTA
A taste of summer in the dead of winter? Roasting cherry tomatoes brings out an intense deep sweetness, further enhanced by the a balsamic vinegar contrast.
Appetizer, Vegetarian, Vegan, Italian

Zucchini Marinata ZUCCHINI MARINATA
You will need a mandolin slicer, but here is another delicious way to use all that zucchini in your garden!
Salads, Vegetarian, Appetizer, Italian

Panzanella PANZANELLA
Italian Tomato and Bread Salad. A great recipe for those hot summer days when you have perfect tomatoes and a great way to use day-old bread.
Salads, Vegetarian, Vegan, Italian

Soups

Minestrone MINESTRONE
A hearty tomato and vegetable soup.
Vegetarian, Vegan, Soups, Italian

Lasagna Soup LASAGNA SOUP
This lighter-version of Lasagna Soup tastes just like lasagna - and is RV-easy!
Soups, Italian

Poultry

Chicken Cutlet with Arugula CHICKEN CUTLETS WITH ARUGULA
Need something quick for two people? This dinner can be on the table in less than 15 minutes! Use the thin-sliced chicken breast cutlets available now in the supermarket, or pound your own.

Chicken Mushroom Ragu CHICKEN MUSHROOM RAGU
This make-ahead sauce cooks two hours in the oven. Great for a dinner party.
Poultry, Italian

Chicken Caccciatore SLOW COOKER CHICKEN CACCIATORE
Too easy to believe – yet very satisfying and good for you. Serve over hot pasta – spaghetti is traditional – for a busy-day dinner. May also be prepared on stove top.
Slow Cooker, Poultry, Italian

Eat CHICKEN PICCATA
Quick and quite elegant. Serve over a bed of spaghetti or fettuccini.
Poultry, Italian

Eat CHICKEN PARMESAN
The chicken can be breaded earlier in the day, so all you need to do for dinner is to heat up the jar of pasta sauce and boil the spaghetti while the chicken is baking.
Poultry, Italian

Chicken with Olives and Lemons CHICKEN WITH OLIVES & LEMONS
DT ordered this wonderful dish our first week in Italy. He loved the salty olives baked with the succulent chicken, so I recreated it for him.
Poultry, Italian

Turkey Lasagna TURKEY LASAGNA
A simple Turkey Ragout layered between many sheets of lasagna noodles. The only cheese is a little Parmesan sprinkled over the top. Low fat. Low calorie.
Poultry, Italian

Turkey Tetrazzini TURKEY TETRAZZINI
Turkey is traditional, and a great way to use up Thanksgiving leftovers, but if you are craving something creamy and satisfying, chicken is equally delicious. Not RV-friendly.
Poultry, Italian, Pasta

Pasta

Pesto BASIL PESTO
Pesto combines fresh basil leaves, olive oil, garlic, pine nuts and cheese and was traditionally ground in a mortar and pestle - in Italian, murta and pestello - thus the name.
Pasta, Italian, Vegetarian

All you need for a savory red sauce is a baking dish, a potato masher and 90 minutes. This will become a favorite at your house.

Fettuccini Alfredo FETTUCCINI ALFREDO
An Alfredo sauce is so simple and only takes about 2 minutes - and one pan! Don't skimp with this dish - use only the finest Parmesan cheese, butter and cream you can find.
Pasta, Italian, Vegetarian

Fettuccini with Asparagus & Lemon FETTUCCINI WITH ASPARAGUS & LEMON
This is a great one-pot (plus a strainer/colander) meal. Light and very nice for Spring when asparagus is in season.
Pasta, Italian, Vegetarian

Mushroom Fettuccini MUSHROOM FETTUCCINI
My Mushroom Fettuccini is a rich and savory dish - but it is still low fat and does not use a cream sauce, which is often common in this recipe.
Pasta, Italian, Vegetarian, Vegan

Spaghetti con Pepe SPAGHETTI CON PEPE
One of DT's favorite meals - spaghetti with lots of freshly-cracked black pepper.
Pasta, Italian, Vegetarian

Linguini with Caramelized Shallots, Mushrooms and Sage LINGUINI with CARAMELIZED SHALLOTS, MUSHROOMS & SAGE
This hearty vegetarian dish is perfect for fall. I used whole wheat linguini, but any linguini or spaghetti will do.

Pasta with Ricotta, Basil & Lemon PASTA WITH RICOTTA, BASIL & LEMON
A classic Italian dish, this recipe comes together quickly and requires only one pot (to wash), so it is also great in the RV.
Pasta, Italian, Vegetarian

Pasta, Italian, Fish

Meats

Chianti Beef CHIANTI BEEF
Based on a classic Italian recipe, my Chianti Beef is exactly the type of recipe I love because it is best made the day before serving.
Beef & Lamb, Italian

Eat ITALIAN SHORT RIBS
This dish is best made the day before, so it is perfect for a party. Don't be afraid of the spices - the sauce is rich and savory, not sweet.
Beef & Lamb, Italian

Lamb Shanks LAMB SHANKS WITH ARUGULA & CANNELLINI BEANS
The shanks need four hours roasting time, but you are rewarded with flavorful meat that falls off the bone. Use lamb or veal shanks. This recipe serves two and is not RV-friendly.
Beef & Lamb, Italian

Risotto

Risotto with Peas RISI E BISI (RISOTTO WITH PEAS)
