A creamy pasta made stove-top with pumpkin, ricotta, mozzarella and Parmesan. Because pumpkin isn’t just for sugary sweets. Dont’cha know? It is fully deserving of being incorporated into your savory dishes.
Baked Italian meatballs smashed flat and topped with tomato sauce, ricotta and mozzarella. You can serve them with spaghetti for a special treat or make mouth-watering sliders (or heroes) out of them. They’re the perfect size.
Pan-fried pork cutlets with a crispy Parmesan panko breading brightened up with a creamy lemon and green olive sauce. If you’re one of my steady readers you probably noticed I cook a lot of chicken, sausage, shrimp and ground beef. Pork and other cuts of beef are noticeably absent.
Chicken parmesan with a special twist! Hidden beneath the traditional mozzarella is a slathering of ricotta cheese peppered with ribbons of baby spinach. An element of surprise to perk up this Italian American comfort food classic.
