Top 10 must-try Italian dishes

"The trouble with eating Italian food is that two or three days later you're hungry again." - George Miller.
Italian cuisine is among the world's richest and most loved cuisine, with dishes perfect for every occasion. Enjoy this list of must try Italian dishes! Buon appetito! :)

Pasta Con Pomodoro E Basilico

Pasta with basic Tomato and Basil Sauce. This is the most basic and simplest cooked pasta sauce, hence it is the benchmark of a good Italian home cook.

Panna Cotta

Panna cotta ("cooked cream") is a fantastically elegant and delicate pudding originating in the Piemonte region, but nowadays enjoyed all over Italy. It's a wonderful dessert for spring and summer as it's served chilled, doesn't require any baking, and pairs wonderfully with all sorts of fresh fruit or fruit sauces, though it can also be served with chocolate sauce, caramel, or really any dessert topping you can think of. 

Linguine with White Clam Sauce

This recipe is easy and takes less than 20 minutes and is loved by every italian .

Shrimp Fra Diavolo

Succulent shrimp simmered in a spicy tomato sauce served over pasta to capture all the sauce.

Penne alla vodka

The vodka itself - and you may have to steel yourself for this - is better added to the drained pasta and not, as all the recipes I've seen, stirred into the sauce, but feel free to play with it as you please. You could, indeed, consider using pepper vodka.

Aubergine rolls with spinach & ricotta

This spin on Italian 'melanzane alla Parmigiana' is quick to prepare and makes a deliciously creamy, veggie bake

Italian tuna balls

A superhealthy twist on a family favourite that can be served with spaghetti or squashed flat and cooked as burgers

Roasted Boneless Lamb with Red Wine Pan Sauce

Lamb is a traditional option for an Easter holiday meal and our recipe is especially flavorful thanks to a filling made with garlic, rosemary, parsley, thyme and olive oil.  Then a rub of lemon juice, rosemary and Dijon mustard is spread over the lamb while roasting to give it a delicious, savory crust.

Minestrone Soup

This is a basic but lovely vegetable soup – it’s jam-packed fully of goodness and will do anyone who eats it the world of good! You can either keep it hearty and chunky or you can cook the soup without the pasta in it, whiz it up in a blender, pour it back in the saucepan with some pasta and cook until the pasta is soft. Delicious!

Caprese Salad with Pesto Sauce

Caprese Salad with Pesto Sauce. Juicy tomato and mozzarella cheese salad with pesto sauce. Topped with the freshness of basil.
