And by “giant,” we mean ginormous. Whopping. Biggest ever. Cookbook author and intrepid pasta eater Domenica Marchetti divulges both recipe and reason.
As the title promises, this recipe is simple. Maybe even beyond simple. Even so, this seasonal must tastes like summer in a can.
A sassy mix of ground pork, paprika, garlic, cayenne pepper, and wine that’s as irresistible as it is easy (albeit slightly inauthentic).
This roasted pork is so tender, so rich with cumin, garlic, cilantro, and smoked paprika, it’s hard not to shout, “Come to mamacita.”
This little bit of heaven is exactly what it purports to be: a smooth, rich confection made from a strawberry Philly cream cheese cheesecake.
This salad, bright with arugula, fennel, and orange, is everything you need for a light lunch or side. It’s peppery, sweet, licorice-y and oh-so-tempting.
In this inspired Italian creation, traditional lasagna noodles are supplanted by polenta. Trust us, you’ll feel no guilt nor regret over forsaking custom.
This basic polenta recipe is the perfect base for so many Italian dishes. Add cheese, top it with sauce or meat, cut it into squares and fry it. Shall we go on?
This sassy roast chicken gets its moist meat and ultra-crisp skin from the two-step process of searing it in a skillet then sliding the whole thing in the oven. Simplicity.
Elegance was never achieved with such ease. Simply stack cooked lasagna noodles with sautéed ‘shrooms and smother with a luxurious cream sauce for some everyday extravagance.
This bird borrows its Peruvian accent from its amazing technicolor dreamcoat of paprika, cumin, and garlic.
Step one: Make a childhood favorite. Step two: Cut it into squares. Step three: Dunk, drop, or plop into tomato soup. Step four: Sigh.
