Viva Italia – Round up of Italian Recipes.
My husband and I are very fond of Italian recipes. I love the full bodied flavor and since I garden as well, I keep Italian style herbs growing on my patio year round. My favorites are rosemary, thyme, oregano and basil.
I thought it would be fun to put together a round up of some of my favorite Italian recipes. Whether it is a side dish, a dessert or a main course, there is something here for all tastes.
These lasagna roll ups are the perfect portion controlled way to make a traditional lasagna. I love the way they stay nicely on the plate without having to wait for the recipe to set.
