This recipe encompasses what is truly special about Italian cuisine. It only requires a few simple ingredients, but it requires several hours of cooking to develop a thick, complex and rich sauce of beef and onions. Serve it up with rigatoni, as it’s one of the only pasta shapes strong enough to hold this hearty sauce.
You can’t beat a classic Bolognese sauce. It’s rich and meaty, making it the ultimate comfort food when served with wide ribbons of pappardelle pasta and grated Parmigiano-Reggiano. Pro tip: Keep a container on hand in the freezer so you can whip up a batch of lasagna for the crew at a moment’s notice.
This traditional seafood stew features buttery, tangy tomato flavors with a kiss of garlic and fresh herbs. Make sure you serve this stew with a loaf of crusty Italian bread, so you can sop up each tasty drop.
You can’t honor Italy without making a decadent tray of tiramisu. With the accent of chocolate and coffee, this famous dessert can be enjoyed with or without the preceding plate of pasta. Besides being a creamy, rich follow-up, this sweet treat can be presented at any occasion. Impress your guests!
