Pomegranate steak tartare is a variation of the classic recipe: fresh and merry! I love serving this particular beef tartare as an appetizer of my gatherings: at Thanksgiving or the Christmas dinner is always a success!
Ricotta cheese pasta is one of the recipes I liked most in my childhood. This sauce for pasta is very easy and fast, just combine ricotta along with fresh basil, Parmigiano Reggiano and tomato sauce. Crushed pine nuts are the crunchy part of this recipe and give a particular taste! Today I opted for strozzapreti, a traditional Italian kind of pasta, but this sauce is delicious with any shape of short pasta or spaghetti as well!
This Easy tomatoes sauce is so tasty and fast to prepare! Tomatoes are cooked along with garlic and sweet basil, just the time to soft them. The more tomatoes are ripe, the more sauce will be delicious! To prepare this recipe a vegetable mill is not mandatory, but I strongly suggest to use it. A blender works fine as well, but the sauce texture will be not the same!
Chicken salad as a great dish prefect for incoming summer. But, maintain the meat moist and tender is not easy. For this reason, often is easier opt for different parts of the chicken but the breast, or shred the meat to make it more flavorful. Today I decided to reveal my secret to obtain the most tender chicken salad with breast you ever ate! Cooked in this way, the meat texture is optimal to be reduced into slices. I love pairing this dish with a savory sun-dried and mint pesto to give a fresh summery taste!
A few days ago , I have been desiring so much some fresh cheese, the same I use to taste in my childhood! Fine, soft, and delicate cheese with its unmistakable scent of milk… and so… I cooked it! The most famous fresh Italian cheese is called “Giuncata”. Its name descend from the traditional molds made with canes (canes = giunchi in Italian), used to store it. The Giuncata is a soft, and tasty cheese, and it’s and healthy as well! It’s ready in a few hours to be enjoyed with tomato salad, cured meats or even simply speared on a slice of bread!

There are days in which I just don’t feel like turning on the stove, does it happen to you too? If that’s the case, then here is a tasty, low-calorie, and super fast recipe (can’t get any better than that). I really enjoy tartare: classic tartare is made with beef, but if you don’t feel like meat you can prepare it with tuna or, as in the recipe I’ll show you, salmon! A healthy meal helps keep you in shape and in a good mood, but to be even safer, use first quality salmon which has just been defrosted. In Italy it is customary to accompany salmon and all river fish with mushrooms. I wanted to try something along the same lines and chose champignon mushrooms, seasoned with olive oil and left to marinate with the fish. Result? Excellent! Celery provides a crunchy note that will render it an even more delicious dish. To get the best results, cut the vegetables into very thin slices and season the tartare 5 minutes before serving.
