This is THE best roast I ever had. I found it on Everyday Italian by Giada De Laurentiis. It is definitely lip smacking good. Don't be afraid of the long instructions, it only looks like a lot of work.
The FoodTV chef Giada De Laurentiis prepared this recently on her show "Everyday Italian." The episode featured a "Polenta Party" but this light cake sounded so much like it could be a great addition to Thanksgiving or Christmas menus that I wanted to get it down and post it for folks that might want it for their holiday tables. :) It would also be good for Easter! We made the cake for a recent Italian dinner party, and it was a nice, light ending to the meal.
This is another amazingly simple recipe from Everyday Italian. I LOVE grilled fruit....it just makes the flavors of the fruit "pop." This isn't one of those "do ahead" deserts, it needs to be served as soon as it is prepared......but you can prep ahead by slicing the pineapple, and mixing up the mascarpone mixture and the Nutella mixture, and having them ready. Or, if your house is like mine, the kitchen is where everyone hangs out anyways...so put them to work mixing stuff while you grill the pineapple. Would also be great dessert for a summer barbecue, since the pineapple could be grilled outside on the grill.
I saw this on "Everyday Italian" yesterday and really wanted to try it, mainly because I love both mushrooms and asparagus, and have been wanting a recipe to use up some of the mascarpone cheese in our fridge! I liked it a lot, and my husband loved it. I preferred mine without walnuts, so you may want to serve these on the side. It is so quick to make that it's sure to become a regular at our house! Keep in mind, however, that this is a very mild pasta, most likely very different from what you're used to!
This simple and flavorful recipe was featured on "Everyday Italian" by Giada De Laurentiis. Goes well with other roasted dishes for dinner such as pork and balsamic pears. The saltiness of the Parmesan goes wonderfully with the sweet, mellow flavor of the roasted fennel.
I haven't tried this recipe yet, but it looked and sounded so good when Giada made it on her show. I've never had cinnamon in an alfredo type dish, but it sounds really good. If you try it, let me know what it's like, because I probably won't be able to make it for a while.:)
I posted this in answer to a question and thought I should probably post it here as well. This is an absolutely delightful summer lunch or supper meal. It is one De Laurentiis grew up with. When she tasted it, she pronounced it "Just as I remembered!" Note that you can use any small tube-shaped pasta such as elbow macaroni or pennette in this recipe. Do not, however, substitute sliced-for- sandwiches mozzarella for the fresh which is totally different.
I watched Giada prepare this dish on her Food Network show, Everyday Italian. Episode: Vegetarian Italian It looked so easy and delicious, I prepared it for my family that same night. It was a big hit! NOTE: Giada prepared this dish for her Mother who dislikes garlic, so I added 10 split cloves of garlic to the vegetables before roasting.
