From classics like shrimp scampi to hearty pumpkin gnocchi soup, our followers have spoken and these are 10 dishes you don’t want to miss!

Classic Shrimp Scampi

This elegant go-to Italian dish is easy to make, even if you’re a novice in the kitchen. All it takes is a few simple ingredients to make a light, buttery sauce for your shrimp. Toss it with a pile of al dente long-cut pasta (we recommend linguine) and you have a delicious dinner in minutes!

Butternut Squash Risotto with Pine Nuts & Balsamic

Risotto is basically the definition of comfort food with all the creamy, cheesy textures you can handle in every bite. This recipe is brimming with bold flavors to complement the hearty texture, thanks to tangy balsamic glaze, sweet butternut squash and sharp Asiago cheese.

Creamy Tuscan Olive Chicken

Olives don’t have to be limited to appetizer fare. In this recipe, Calamata and Castelvetrano olives add a briny, sharp bite to a chicken dinner. Add in smoky-sweet sun-dried tomatoes, kale and fresh herbs, and this baked chicken dish is sure to make the monthly rotation.

Pumpkin Gnocchi Soup

Creamy pumpkin purée, fresh sage and bacon add seasonal flavor to this thick, silky soup. But the real show-stopper is our soft, pillowy mini potato gnocchi, which takes this recipe to the next level!

Pumpkin Gnocchi with Butter Sage Sauce

We combine pureed pumpkin with our homemade potato gnocchi kit to make the perfect cold weather dish. Once you make your potato gnocchi, toss it in a butter sage sauce and top it with fresh grated Parmesan and balsamic vinegar for a rich combination of delicious flavors.

Ricotta, Goat Cheese and Avocado Oil Antipasti Spread

It’s time to trade in your standard appetizer recipes for this easy and elegant starter. We put a twist on the standard antipasto spread with a creamy goat cheese dip, a drizzle of avocado oil and your favorite DeLallo antipasti.

Creamy Mushroom Pasta

Brought to you by one of our favorite food bloggers, this mushroom pasta by What’s Gaby Cooking is perfect for mushroom lovers! Start by making a creamy sauce with crimini, shiitake and morel mushrooms. Toss our linguine in your sauce and add some fresh herbs, and you have a unique and crowd-pleasing dinner on the table.

Italian Beans, Greens and Pasta

In our opinion, the only way to make fragrant, garlicky greens and beans better is to turn it into a pasta dinner! This healthy entrée features fresh kale and cherry tomatoes, silky cannellini beans, loads of garlic and a pound of our Fusilli pasta. Mangia!

Ribollita Toscana

If you want to try an authentic Italian classic, Ribollita Toscana is a great place to start. This simple soup is made with cannellini beans, kale, tomatoes, dried bread and a soffritto of garlic and vegetables. Give your soup plenty of time to simmer, as this will allow the flavors to develop. Serve with Chianti and an assortment of olives for a true Italian meal!

Paprika Chicken Pasta

This creamy, spicy, oh-so-cozy pasta dish is brought to you by our blogger partner Pinch of Yum. Start with baked paprika chicken, add a creamy paprika sauce, toss it all with our Farfalle pasta and you have a unique pasta dinner that will soon be a family favorite.
