Penne al la vodka is always good and chicken parmisean. Cannoli’s are an awesome dessert. Now I’m hungry! lol

Oh boy. I’m Italian… where should I start?

Are you looking for appetizers? main courses? desserts?

Seriously… I could spend an hour on this. ๐Ÿ˜›

Appetizers: Antipasto-stuffed mushrooms, salami, cheese, pickled peppers, olives. Also could do calamari, bushetta, prosciutto wrapped asparagus.

The Italian wedding soup is a beef broth with small meatballs, pasta and spinach-one of my favorite soups.

Dinner: chicken parmigiana is always good, chicken Marsala, you could go with any grilled meat or fish and I know you said no pasta, but a side of pasta would work nicely. As would broccoli rabe or braised Italian greens.

You could do skewers of tomatos, fresh mozzarella, basil, and bv as an appetizer. along with maybe steamed muscles or roasted artichoke hearts or something?

for entrees chicken parm, chicken scallopinne or marsala… of course any variety of lasagna or cannaloni, etc. mm

Here grilled chicken with a basil sauce sounded good. Pair it with a caprese salad and saffron orzo.

I think so much of what we eat as Italitan food in the US, isnt really italian food, just braded and fried and topped with cheese. Real Italian food pays homage to quality ingredients and it doesnt have to be heavy and greasy.

@LadySapphire: I totally understand not wanting a red sauce. You could try a pasta primavera, which a garlic and olive oil sauce or a white sauce like alfredo.  My Dad’s favorite is clams in a white wine sauce.  All very Italian-like, and slightly less messy! ๐Ÿ™‚ Oh, and I agree with CorgiTales, marinated artichokes would be awesome! As would the mozzarella and basil salad. You could also go with an eggplant parm, or a stuffed eggplant.  Good luck!
