Pasta “Ro Malu Tempu”

25 February 2021

This peasant dish from Sicily translates to “pasta when the weather is bad”. It is what fishermen made when the weather conditions didn’t allow them to fish. Besides broccoli and pasta, it uses common ingredients found in every Sicilian kitchen such as pine nuts, raisins, bread crumbs, anchovies, and saffron.

The Best Baked Ziti

21 September 2020

I am half Italian, was raised eating the finest Italian-American cuisine, and have filmed almost 2000 recipe videos, so when you consider all of those facts, it seems incredible that I have never posted a video for baked ziti. Hopefully I make up for that long wait by posting what I think is the best version of it.

Slow Cooker Chicken Meatballs in Tomato Sauce

24 July 2020

These slow cooker meatballs are Italian style but with a twist, ground chicken instead of beef. Serve over pasta of your choice or use the meatballs and sauce to make a sub. Leftover sauce freezes well.

Butterscotch Budino

17 July 2020

I’m gonna show you my take on this amazing Italian custard pudding. Above and beyond that rich and decadent butterscotch flavor, the texture here is unbelievable. To say it’s smooth and luxurious doesn’t come close to doing it justice. Serve as-is, with whipped cream, or topped with caramel sauce and flaky sea salt.

Italian Chicken Sausage and Peppers

Chicken Piccata with Artichoke Hearts

6 July 2020

After eating chicken piccata in many restaurants and finding many that were ‘greasy,’ I came up with this recipe through much trial and error. It has wonderful flavor and is even better the next day! I like to serve it over angel hair pasta or linguine.

This is an easy chicken Parm recipe that’s delicious.
You can do this in an oven or a toaster oven.

Bolognese Tagliatelle

3 July 2020

This labor of love is not your traditional red meat sauce. Bolognese is a delicious meat sauce that is refined and simmered for hours to bring out the great flavors of all the ingredients. Combine it with tagliatelle or with your favorite pasta to create a satiny, creaminess from the pasta starches that make this a memorable meal. Serve with a loaf of crusty Italian bread.
