Cooking Italian with Fry's Taste of Italy
As someone who loves to cook as much as I enjoy dining out, receiving a basket of ingredients for meal inspiration is the perfect gift. Thanks to Fry's and their Taste of Italy campaign, I'll be cooking a lot of Italian in the coming weeks. From September 17 through the 28th, Fry’s is carrying authentic ingredients imported from Italy, designed to inspire their customers to explore Italian cuisine in their homes.
My complimentary basket of Italian ingredients included penne rigate and lumaconi pasta, balsamic vinegar, roasted peppers, Amarena cherries, leek and tomato pasta sauce, red and green pesto, wine (Chianti and Pino Grigio), roasted peppers, pear sauce, grissini, rosemary crostini, cheese crackers, and recipe cards.
I also did some shopping to supplement, buying cheese, salame, speck, ravioli, tiramisu ingredients, and more.
So far, I've made steamed clams with leek and tomato broth accompanied by rosemary and olive oil bread (above) for dunking, and an antiplasti platter for family who flew in last night. On the agenda is baked stuffed lumaconi, mushroom ravioli with gorgonzola cream sauce, homemade pasta with ndjua pasta sauce, panna cotta with Amarena cherries, and tiramisu. Check back this week for recipes.
