Do you LOVE pasta like I do?
Do you LOVE the taste of Italian spices like I do?
Then this book is DEFINITELY for YOU!
|Juicy Italian Baked Chicken~ recipe bakes in one pan including peas and potatoes :)|
Filled with wonderful Italian dishes (minus the alcohol :) hence the Mormon in the title. She has everything from meatballs to focaccia breads to truffles. She also has some really fun Italian facts and jokes with each recipe.
A couple of my favorites are:
|Mama's Spaghetti and Meatballs ~ SO GOOD!|
*Mangia che ti passa (Translation: Eat and it will be over, you'll feel better :)
*What do you call an Italian with his hands in his pocket? ~ A mute.
*If you don't like Mama's pasta ~ you need your noodle examined!
*Turkey is served on Thanksgiving...AFTER the manicotti, gnocchi, lasagna and soup.
|Kelly's Pink Sauce ~ REALLY LOVED this one!|
There is a secret ingredient that you would never guess :)
*Prom dress that Aunt Rosa made: $21.00 for material Prom hair-do from Cousin Angela: Free Turning around at prom to see your entire family (including grandparents & senile great Uncle Antonio) standing in the back of the gym: PRICELESS!
DELICIOUS, AMAZING RECIPES!
(A special THANKS to my FABULOUS husband who cooks for me...pictures are from the recipes he made :)
|Mama Gallo's Bolognese Sause ~ my favorite!|
EVERY recipe we tried is easy to put together and tastes DIVINE!
"An Italian meal isn't just a meal ~
It is an experience!"
|Chad's Famous Asparagus ~ LOVED these!|
|Romeo & Juliet Pizza Sauce ~ It really is TO DIE FOR!|
