Feast of the Seven Fishes (Year 2)

This year’s Feast of the Seven Fishes is probably going to be reduced by a couple courses to maybe 5 or even just 3. The important part of the Feast is that it’s an odd number of courses. The most traditional of my courses is the baccala alla vicentina, which is one of my favorites. … Continue reading »

Summery Grilled Corn Linguine

We’ve been having corn all summer, but this was the first time I decided to put some into a pasta dish. We took some leftover grilled corn and cut it off the cob, combined it with sweet end-of-summer cherry tomatoes and anchovies, and it was a perfect weekend lunch. The sweet corn and tomatoes combined … Continue reading »

Gnocchi Puttanesca

Puttanesca is a classic pantry pasta sauce, using olives and anchovies along with canned tomatoes. It makes sense that that’s the basis of one of the stories about how it got it’s name. Either way, as we are starting to clean out the pantry in preparation for moving and we didn’t have a lot of … Continue reading »

Sicilian Pantry Pasta

Sometimes I realize the fridge is empty but the store is so far away….those are the times I look to the pantry to figure out what I can piece together. I usually have a can of Italian tuna, which is a great way to get some protein into what would normally just be starch-based. Add … Continue reading »

Baccala alla Vicentina

I must say, this is definitely a fantastic recipe so I’m not surprised it came from Babbo. It’s also incredibly easy, and on a night when I’m doing 7 fishes, the fact that it’s entirely make-ahead is a huge plus. In effect, this is the same dish that Spanish and French cuisines call Brandada or … Continue reading »

Well, this was the post I was waiting to do. Spaghetti and meatballs is one my all-time favorite meals, and my blog is named after them. I was lucky enough to share this meal with some great friends, so it was a fantastic evening. Almost everyone loves spaghetti and meatballs, it’s really hard to go … Continue reading »

Maloreddus with Anchovies, Orange, and Malvasia

I was first introduced to Maloreddus on a trip to Sardinia last year. (I will write up a travel post on that one, it’s definitely overdue….) They are basically Sardinian cavatappi and you can generally find them at Italian grocery stores like Di Palo in NY. While the picture might not be so exciting because I didn’t have anything … Continue reading »
