Tomato Bread Salad
If we had to name the top 10 dishes requested by our families, this salad would be high on the list. It’s our version of the classic Tuscan salad known as panzanella, with some celery thrown in for a bit of crunch and lemon zest and mint for a refreshing kick.It’s common to moisten the bread with water before adding it to the salad, but depending on how stale the bread is and how juicy the tomatoes are, sometimes it’s not necessary. So we hold off, mixing the bread with the rest of the ingredients first. Whether or not you add water, be generous with the salt — the tomatoes and bread soak it right up.Click here to see 5 Recipes That Are Keepers

Individual, mini meatloaves offer a shorter cooking time for almost-instant gratification. Italian bread, Parmigiano-Reggiano, fresh parsley, and bits of peppery garlic replace store-bought breadcrumbs. And lean ground beef is made moist and flavorful by replacing the saturated fat (found in ground chuck) with fruity olive oil.

Italian Wrap
This wrap is a representation of all of my favorite Italian ingredients: smoky roasted red peppers, savory salami, sautéed peppers, and mushrooms. The goat cheese acts as a binding for all of the ingredients, and when it melts, it acts as dressing for the wrap. Click here to see 9 Quick and Easy Wrap Recipes.

This little Italian bruschetta appetizer is always a favorite. Sometimes I like to create a bruschetta bar with selections of Italian meats, olives, cheeses or a traditional tomato and basil. You can be extremely creative and everyone will love to bite into these crispy toasts with yummy toppings. I love to use plum tomatoes for this bruschetta. First of all they remind me of my grandmother and they are hearty and can sit for a while in olive oil and still stay firm and tasty.

As an Italian, I love making this soup in the morning and letting it simmer throughout the day. Sometimes I use beef meatballs and other times I use ground turkey.  It really depends on what I have on hand or what I'm in the mood for.  Either way this is a delicous and hearty soup to enjoy for lunch or dinner (even a snack).

Italian Marinated Grilled Chicken
This recipe could not be any simplier.  All you need is a bit of zesty Italian dressing and a hot grill and you'll have the perfect grilled chicken. For this round, the chicken was used for a grilled sandwich, topped with turkey bacon, American cheese and sandwiched between two halves of an English muffin.

If you’re a sucker for the Italian specialty, you’ll like Cooking Light’s meatballs-in-a-burger recipe. They use light turkey meat flavored with basil, oregano, and fennel seeds to create patties and top them with classic provolone cheese, marinara sauce, and fresh basil. We’ve heard of meatballs subs, but we loved this burger recipe because it stayed true to the beauty of a burger while offering all of the delicious tastes of the Italian dish.

Sautéed Italian Flat Beans
No, those aren't unshucked favas in the picture. That would not be good eats. Instead, these are Italian flat beans, a recent discovery I made. They're a great substitute for regular old green beans but have a bit more crunch and a slightly sweeter flavor. This is a great side dish for anyone who's looking for something quick and easy on a busy weeknight.Click here to see Eat Your Legumes — They're Good for You.

Italian Meringue
You'll need a candy thermometer for this recipe, and it's a bit more of a challenge that the other two types of meringues, Swiss and French, since timing is of the essence, but with practice, it'll get easier. Be careful when pouring melted sugar!
