Italian / American Italian Foods to Try

Check out this list of Italian food, designed to tempt your tastebuds.  The italian foods recipes can be found by clicking on the recipe name.

Espresso Almond Bites
Small coffee and almond biscuits.   Only 15 mins prep and 20 mins in the oven.  Recipe calls for oven to be at 350F (that’s approx.. 180 C or 160 fan forced).
Squid with Peas 
A slow braised dish of calamari and peas.  Recipe describes how to clean and prepare the squid but to save time you could purchase pre-prepared calamari. 
Classic Baked Ziti
An easy but filling pasta bake.  If you can’t get ziti pasta penne is a good substitute.
Caramel Apple Coffee Cake

This one has a few ingredients but will make you very popular at home!
Homemade Italian Beef (Chicago style)

Ok its more American than Italian but who’s going to argue when its this tasty.   Long rolls stuffed with Italian flavoured beef and topped with giardiniera (pickled vegetables in vinegar, available at some supermarkets and all good Italian delis.)  Great for a get together where you want to make something beforehand that’s a bit different.  Note 450F = approx. 230C. 
Lemon Pistachio Cake

This one is more for the cook who wants to test their skills.  Quite a few steps but an impressive result.

7-Vegetable Salad

Super easy, super health and will help feed a crowd.  Think about this for your next BBQ.
Zucchini with Garlic And Chili Flakes

A healthy side  dish that can be served with so many of your favourite dishes.
Wedding Soup

Apparently the soup has nothing to do with Weddings – but what a fab name!

Prawn and Melon Salad

The recipe calls for 1 pound of shrimp.  That’s approx. 500g of prawns in Aussie speak.  Great for a hot day.
Pasta bake with pancetta rosemary and ground pork

The Kitchen Daily website that this is from calls it the ultimate boy’s night dinner. 
Torta Pasqualina

An Italian pie full of artichokes, spinach, ricotta and eggs.
Chocolate, Pistachio and Nougat Semifreddo

Only ½ hr to prepare (plus freezing time).  This semi freddo will impress.
Lemon Drop cookies (Anginetti)
Not too sweet cookies.
Chicken Picata

An American Italian classic – Chicken with a tangy caper suace.

Amaretto Truffles

Made from chocolate, cream and Amaretto

White Bean Chicken Soup

I feel healthy just thinking about this one.
