Potato, Tomato & Basil Salad

Admittedly, this is a leftover-salad however super tasty and great as a side dish for a BBQ or piece of meat or fish. Simple yet scrumptious!

Polpettine with Tomato Sauce

Some time ago, I posted the Polpettine recipe. An ideal combo to eat this tasty meal, is to add tomato sauce to the mix. Again, very Italian, however I actually never tried them this way…so I wanted to share with you!

Lemon Ricotta Pasta

Years back on the island of Capri (Italy), I had a similar dish in a restaurant and since then, I have been trying to figure out, how to make this delicious pasta. And this is the closest I have gotten and really like it. Few ingredients, mixed up together brilliantly! Give it a try!

Quiche with Goat Cheese & Figs, Prociutto, Honey & Walnuts

We are enjoying our lovely family vacation in the beautiful house of my in-laws in Tuscany. They not only have a great pool, donkeys, a tractor (yes, all the things my little one adores), but also fig trees in the garden. And lucky enough – we just harvested the last figs of the season! So what else could I have done than directly prepare a meal with them included?

Caprese Salad with Artichoke Hearts

Loving this typical Italian caprese salad, this time I prepared it with a little twist: With artichoke hearts for the “green” instead of the typical basil leaves. Once again super simple, easy and fast to prepare and just delicious. Definitely worth a try, especially if you like archtichoke hearts as much as I do!!

Burrata with Fresh Peaches & Pine Nuts

With the warm temperatures I always enjoy eating a cool and light dinner (or starter). I had a similar dish at an invitation of friends and recreated it with a little twist! This fruity, nutty mixture with the creaminess of the Burrata is a delight for your taste buds. Hope you like it as much as I did! Hmmmm….

Pasta with Pesto Rosso

Pasta is just one of the best inventions ever. Just plain with butter and parmesan cheese or with all the variations of sauces that are possible. This Pesto Rosso is a very nice alternative to the typical “normal” pesto Genovese. It’s great as a dip with some crackers or grissini, as well as on pasta. Simple to make and ideal to store for a few days in the fridge.

Prosciutto, Mozzarella & Sun-dried Tomato Appetizer Skewers

I am a great fan of mozzarella, tomato and basil (and avocado ideally), but wanted to prepare something a little different as an appetizer. Instead of fresh tomatoes I used sun-dried ones and added a slice of prosciutto last. A great taste explosion in your mouth, easy to prepare and just delicious. Give it a try!
