Cookbook author and food blogger Cindy Barbieri discovered that she didn't have to reject her love of authentic Italian food when she decided to follow the Paleo approach to family dining. To her delight, she found her Nana's recipes, except for the pasta and Italian bread, were already healthy Paleo diet without even knowing it and those that were not inherently Paleo were easily converted with a few simple and healthy alterations—all without sacrificing the delicious flavors that she fell in love with as a child. Cindy's husband and kids enthusiastically embraced her nutritious and gluten-free Italian soups, salads, appetizers, entrees, sides and desserts—and your family will too!
In Paleo Italian Cooking, Cindy shows you how to prepare many night's menus of authentic yet contemporary family-style Paleo Italian meals. Inspired by her annual trips to Italy and meals she makes for her family along with the memories of the meals she made with her Nana, Cindy will have you cooking Italian every night of the week with recipes like:
- Grilled Calamari Salad
- Tuscan Chicken & Vegetable Chili
- Chicken Scaloppine in Lemon-Caper Sauce
- Osso Buco
- Dover Sole Piccata
- Pistachio-Crusted Cod with Roasted Pepper Sauce
- Spaghetti Squash Puttanesca
- Porcini Mushroom & Peas Cauliflower "Risotto"
- Pistachio & Almond Biscotti
- Prosecco & Peach Cocktails
