Just outside of Pisa, Italy is a little green shack that serves only this salad for lunch. Oddly enough, you usually see construction workers and blue collar men eating there! Viva Italia

Tramezzini tonno e uovoa

The Italian don't view sandwiches quiet the same as we do. These are served as quick "between little snacks"...tra..mezz....ini. I added this only so I could know the calorie content of my normal breakfast!

Pasta all' Funghi

Pasta doens't have to be drowned in red commercialized sauce. Italy has over 1000 legal pasta shapes, try some of the even more numerous sauces.

Pesto dello Nonno

My Italian Grandfather (Nonno) would make huge batches of this and store it in icecube trays in the freezer. I thought there was slime in the ice machine the first time I saw it!

Italian seafood salad

Enjoy a heart friendly Italian light lunch in the tradtion of the Tuscan coastline. Here meddeterian flavours meld together for an easy to make dish. Cuttlefish looks like a large calamari (squid) and is often called seppia or tonato. You can use octopus or squid in its place if your unable to find it. Sarento lemons are the best lemon to use. Its flavor is un-matched by any other lemon in the world. Around Naples and Sarento, you'll find cut up lemon peel commonly in your salad. There is no bitterness. Bon Appitito
