Product Description

Americans love Italian food. From minestrone soup and pasta salad to shrimp scampi and lobster ravioli, satisfying creations from Italian-American kitchens have become all-American fare. With 250 recipes accompanied by fascinating culinary lore, the Marianis celebrate the best of this beloved tradition, now risen from its poor-immigrant past to set world standards for top-quality Italian-style cuisine.
If you use only the freshest ingredients the result, whether a simple salad or an adventurous dessert, will be a culinary triumph to enjoy. In their overstuffed tribute to one of our country's favorite cuisines, the Marianis tackle both the familiar and the rare. Many of their spaghetti dishes are paired with vegetables, such as a Spaghetti with Cauliflower recipe, which also calls for currants, saffron and anchovies. Conversely, fruit is often used to brighten their meat dishes. Roasted Sausages and Grapes are hot and sweet at once, and there's an irresistible Mountain Lamb Scallopine with Figs and Honey made with ginger, fennel and orange juice. Additionally, the authors include a small collection of comforting, childhood favorites, like Johnny Marzetti, an Italian-style Sloppy Joe; Chicken Tetrazzini, with Parmigiano-Reggiano, heavy cream and butter; and even Baked Macaroni and Cheese, perked up with a touch of cayenne. Quite addictive and good for the soul, if not always for the waistline, these 250 recipes will prove handy on nights when there are no reservations to be found at the local ristorante.
