Lentil soup is bold, hearty and bursting with flavour. In Italy, it is a New Years' tradition to eat this soup at the stroke of midnight. My lentil soup recipe has an aromatic twist - fresh rosemary and oregano which I’m convinced Nonna would approve of, just the smell in your kitchen is enough to tempt tastebuds! Each bowl is filled with soft lentils drowning in a delicious herby tomato broth then topped with crispy bread bites and a fresh parsley garnish.
SLOW COOKED LAMB SHANKS
Slow-cooked lamb shanks are succulent, flavorsome and literally fall-off the bone. Smothered in tomato sauce which simmers away for hours, this recipe uses fragrant herbs which infuse the shanks and when cooked with time they become so moist and tender the whole family will devour them. Don’t be overwhelmed by how long they take to cook as there is very little work to do – you just need quality ingredients and patience!
Easy RICOTTA GNOCCHI RECIPE
Ricotta gnocchi are soft pillows of pasta, which will melt in your mouth. Much faster to make than traditional gnocchi you might surprise yourself with just how good you are at creating these little morsels of joy. There is no compromise when it comes to flavour and they can be served with any of your favourite sauces. I’ve chosen to smother my ricotta gnocchi in tomato and basil sauce – the perfect partner for these cheesy delights.
MUSHROOM RISOTTO RECIPE
My mushroom risotto recipe is a no-fail way to master the creamiest risotto you will ever taste – minus the cream of course! Using wild porcini mushrooms, fresh parsley and a sprinkle of parmigiano cheese you barley need any ingredients to recreate this Northern Italian dish in your own kitchen…and wait until you taste it! Trust me, it’s not hard and once you realise that you’ll never order it out again! Try it with your own favourite ingredients and let me know what you choose…
ITALIAN BRAISED BEEF
Italian braised beef is a classic dish that simply melts in your mouth. Unfortunately, it’s not as popular as it once was, but it certainly deserves a comeback as it’s DELICIOUS! Make this surprisingly creamy and flavorful braised beef on a Sunday for a traditional Italian meal. This hearty main meal is tasty, flavorful, and the beef is so tender, it will fall apart at the slightest touch of a fork. This recipe may take a few hours to cook, but it is definitely ALWAYS worth the wait!
ITALIAN CHICKEN PARMIGIANA
Chicken parmigiana can be likened to Italian crumbed chicken with toppings, typically including cheese and tomato sauce, but is it Italian? NO! As an Italian I have recreated this pub-classic with delicious authentic ingredients and believe me there is no going past this recipe for a cheesy chicken stack that is smothered in rich tomato and basil sauce. I even have two options for cheese on top, would you prefer buffalo mozzarella or burrata?
ITALIAN BRUSCHETTA RECIPE
My favourite part about this dish is the sensational flavour you get from the tomato juice when using freshly grown or organic varieties. In Italian households, many foods are topped on oven-baked bread slices and served as an antipasto…simple to prepare but rich in taste, my tomato bruschetta should be on repeat in your kitchens!
ITALIAN MEATBALLS RECIPE
My Italian meatballs recipe is just like a giant hug from Nonna. A mixture of quality veal and pork mince combined with the perfect amount of fresh parsley and cheese (a tonne of both!) as well as moist artisan bread will create the most delicious meatballs you have ever tasted, period.
FRESH ORECCHIETTE I had a massive day and tonight I relaxed making #Orecchiette It is therapeutic and fun at the same time. I served it with #VincenzosPlate Basil sugo as this is my favorite way to eat #OrecchiettePasta during the winter season. The traditional way of serving Orecchiette is with cime di rapa but like I said, the sugo takes them to the next level on a cold winter evening. To get the recipe GOOGLE "Orecchiette Vincenzo's Plate"
