Rich and flavoursome, Italian cuisine is a classic comfort food optionFebruary 1, 2017
From Arancini to lasagna to ribollita, saltimbocca and sweet tiramisu, there are delectable Italian dishes to suit everyone!
Try meaty Saltimbocca
This dish is made with veal or beef and topped with prosciutto and a flavouring of tasty herbs (notably sage and basil). Saltimbocca literally means ‘jumps in the mouth’, and this is one dish that is designed to make your taste buds leap for joy. This dish creates a delicious starter or side plate.
Arancini are little balls of rice mixed with whatever you please! Often, they will be made with meat or fish and will contain cheese and spinach or butternut squash. This dish is often topped with a delectably rich tomato sauce. They can either be eaten as a starter, as a kind of tapas plate, or as a main.
Uncover your love for Lasagna
Like Italian cuisine, lasagna is a dish that comes in layers. Oblong sheets of pasta are sandwiched between hearty beef or vegetarian mince in a tomato sauce, cheesy bechamel sauce and, if you prefer, some mushrooms, tomato or spinach. This dish is perfect with a crunchy salad after it has been baked to perfection!
Try a rustic Ribollita
This rustic Tuscan soup is made of vegetables and traditionally served with crusty bread. Ingredients can vary, but this type of soup traditionally includes beans, carrots, tomatoes, kale, onions and leftover bread in a tasty broth.
Treat yourself to Tiramisu
In Italian, tiramisu means ‘pick me up’. This dessert has two key layers: a sponge soaked in coffee, and a sweet and alcoholic marsacapone layer. On top, you will typically find a dusting of cocoa powder or some curls of chocolate. This is the perfect way to finish off a classic Italian meal!
