327 Simple Italian Recipes to Cook at Home
Lasagne alla Bolognese al Forno
When I first arrived in Emilia-Romagna, I was shocked to see lasagne made so simply. Then I tried the dish and was surprised at how truly delicious it tasted. It is almost a miracle how a few such simple ingredients can create such a complex symphony of flavors.
Makes 8 servings2 1/2 pounds Green Pasta Dough (page 196)
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
Ragu Bolognese (page 245)
8 ounces Parmigiano-Reggiano, grated
3 1/2 cups Besciamella (page 65)
Calamari alla Luciana
This simple classic is often interpreted to include anything from bacon to zucchini, all of which may be good but are not traditional. The hero in this game is the brief cooking time, which results in calamari with a silken, tender texture, complemented but not overpowered by the slightly spicy tomato sauce.
Makes 6 servings1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
1 tablespoon hot red pepper flakes
1 cup Basic Tomato Sauce (page 71)
1/2 cup dry white wine
2 1/2 pounds calamari, cleaned, bodies cut into 1/4-inch-wide rings, tentacles left whole
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
1/4 cup Italian parsley, chiffonade
Chicken in the Style of Canzano
This Canzanese recipe is anything but a peasant dish, with the prosciutto and wine -- it probably descended from Spanish royalty, long-time tenants in and around Napoli.
Makes 4 servingsTwo 3-pound chickens, cut into 8 serving pieces each
1 tablespoon salt
2 sprigs rosemary
2 fresh sage leaves
4 bay leaves
3 cloves garlic, sliced
A small handful of black peppercorns, crushed
1 small dried hot chile
Two 1/4-inch-thick slices prosciutto di Parma, finely chopped
3/4 cup dry red wine
2 tablespoons finely chopped Italian parsley
