Just wanted to see what everyone likes as far as Italian food goes!


I love saute'ed veggies w/ garlic and oil...home-made pasta (yes i make it ...mmm) and fresh marinara (i dont use canned tomatoes and i tend to make it with LOOOOTS of basil, and a few other secret ingredients!)



whats the craziest one youve ever eaten/witnessed being eaten??


I had to watch my grandfather eat gabazelle (sp?)...if you can tell me what that is ill give you a cookie! :p

Hope my keyboard can take all that drool :p

I grew up in Switzerland and Italy was just a few hours away. My husband used to race dirt-bikes and we often went to Italy for the weekend for races or practices. We used to go to this amazing restaurant where the owner was crazy about the bikers. He spoiled us every time we ate there. The evening would start off with prosciutto and melon followed by vitello tonnato (my absolute fav), linguini or risotto, some main course we had to try (even if we were to stuffed) followed of course by a buffet of desserts. Man, I would love to go back again!!!!! VIVA ITALIA!!!

Eggplant parmesian yummy!

I also love good fresh pasta.

Ok, and can we talk about he cookies.. I love italian cookies, not too sweet with a touch of anise...

I remember going to visit my Antonella and she'd be like " you want I make you linguini?" the next thing i knew there would be a pile of flour on the table and she'd be making the pasta. it was the best ever. (not like what we always had at home which was muellers dried pasta)

The only italian thing I don't like is pizza. I like the greek style of pizza.

My husband is Italian and he makes a great manicote...hehe...he laughs when I pronounce it manicotti. (you should appreciate that one IanT) :lol:

He makes the pasta, the sauce (or gravy) and adds just a touch of mint to the filling.

Allright...I'm drooling now. :)

My oldest is a chef and let me tell you...........the quarter he took in making homemade pasta and thus then the sauces, I must have gained 15 pounds. :roll: So, I would have to say ANYTHING that kid makes is my favorite!!
