Top Rated Italian Recipes

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.

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).

We all know Italians love their sausage stuffing, but we thought they could do it even better with the addition of authentic ingredients like rosemary and sun-dried tomatoes.

Italian Breakfast Sandwich
Every Sunday my father would go into the kitchen and become Mr. Sandwich, toasting up good slices of bread and filling them with all sorts of combinations. Some were good, some horrendous. But it turned me into a sandwich junkie. When you’re making a breakfast sandwich, there’s no time to waste. Frying the salami, sopressata is ideal because it’s generously larded, crisps up the meat and gives the sandwich body. But it’s also efficient, because you can use that same pan to make a sunny-side-up egg, glazing it with the spiciness of the rendered fat. (You can also use this trick to cook onions, peppers, or greens for a flavor boost with no extra work) There’s a lot going on in this Italian sandwich, but it has great balance: The saltiness of the meat is offset by the sweetness of the basil and the creaminess of the egg and mozzarella. Soaking sliced red onion in ice water is something I learned from my mom. It takes the raw bite out of the onion and keeps it light and crunchy. This is a rich sandwich, but it’s refreshing. And the beautiful thing is, it’s not just for breakfast.  Click here to see Make Brunch in 20 Minutes or Less — 10 Recipes.

Italian Wedding Soup
Hear the word "meatballs" and a few other words immediately come to mind. "Spaghetti," of course, "subs" and "sliders" too. But in the winter months, when I'm locked in a I-could-eat-soup-for-almost-every-meal frame of mind, I hear "meatballs" and instantly crave Italian Wedding Soup. Filling and wonderfully flavorful, it's impressively light and delicate for a meatball dish.Click here to see Recipe SWAT Team: Meatballs.

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.

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.

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!
