The cookbook has many photographs, and lots of tips and tricks, even a list of Basic Pantry Items to make everything simple. This book is fabulous just for the Basic Pantry Items list!

Eggplant ParmigianaOne of the recipes that brought me back in time is Cheesy Spaghetti Pie. My Grandmother cooked pasta for every holiday...enormous amounts of pasta, so she always had leftovers. One day we were over there early while my Dad did some work around the house. Grandma cooked up some spaghetti pie for us kids. (Because if you're Italian, you know Grandma has to cook for you when you come over, doesn't matter what time you come over, she has to feed you. Manga!) I am definitely going to make this for my son with Gluten Free Pasta (he has an allergy to Gluten).
Pepperoni Pizza Strata (kind of a savory bread pudding.)
Grain Filled Summer Bell Peppers
Tuscan Sausage Stew With Tomatoes and Cannellini Beans
Green Curry Chicken With Thai Basil
Tuscan Pot Roast
Tortilla Soup With Pork Meatballs, Tortillas, & Cheddar
...and so many more.
