About This Recipe

Are you looking for a delicious lemon recipe with a difference? If you are, you’ve found it! Here’s my lemon & white wine biscuits for you to enjoy.

A speciality of northern Italy, these delicious biscuits are often served as an Easter treat. I have tried them with red wine and they work well too. If you have any biscuits left over, store them in an airtight container – they will last up to a week. Serve with a dessert wine.

Linguine ai Frutti di MareMixed Seafood Linguine with Chilli & Cherry Tomatoes

I have to admit that my mother is not the best cook in the world unless cooking traditional Neapolitan dishes she has grown up with. However, this has to be one of her best creations that she prepares for me every time I go to visit her. It is very important for this recipe to use tinned cherry tomatoes because if you use the fresh ones, the sauce will be too watery. Do not overcook the prawns or langoustines...

Pizza spessa con acciughe, olive e capperiDeep Pan Pizza With Anchovy, Olive & Caper Topping

Sicily is the original home of the deep-pan pizza. A popular dish, it is usually cooked in large rectangular tins and sold by the weight. Pizzas in Sicily vary according to the region, with each area having its own recipes and traditions, and this type (known in Sicily as sfinciuni) originated in western Sicily, in the province of Palermo. I absolutely love the combination of anchovies,...

Conchigle Rigate PiccantiShell Pasta With Spicy Pork And Tomato Sauce

I love this shape of pasta and this sauce is perfect for it. The delicate taste of the pork with the strong flavours of the chilli, olives and sun-dried tomatoes is a match made in heaven. I know that most people add cheese to pasta sauces but please don’t to this one. It really doesn't need it and will actually ruin the natural flavours of the ingredients. If you fancy, substitute the conchiglie...

Rigatoni all’Arrabbiata con SalmoneRigatoni in Spicy Tomato and Salmon Sauce

Arrabbiata means 'angry' in Italian, and I guess they used it to name this dish because of the heat of the chilli peppers in the sauce. The spicier the better for me, but be careful in Italy when asking for this traditional dish to be extra spicy – they will take you at your word. In this recipe the rigatoni can be replaced with penne or any other pasta shape, if you prefer. Just get cooking –...
