Would like some authentic Italian meal recipes

May 12, 2007 11:33am CST
Want to make a really authentic Italian meal for my wife and wonder if any of you out there in Mylot can help. Would like to use fresh ingredients where possible and have it as close to the meals I have had whilst in Italy on holidays. Perhaps you have a favourite starter or dessert I could try. Here's hoping to get my taste buds going!

Bruschetta is an easy traditional starter that anyone can make. Chop 2 fresh tomatoes and dice 1/4 fresh red onion and 1 clove garlic. Mix with a drizzle of olive oil and several leaves of basil cut into ribbons. Serve on thinly sliced crusty bread and top with fresh grated parmesean cheese if desired. mangia!
