Over the last few years I have spent quite a bit of time in Italy, traveling from the North to the South. The food is without a doubt some of the best I’ve eaten.

Italian food continues to inspire the whole world and there are few cuisines that are held in such high regard for their traditional recipes and superior quality ingredients.
This week I’ve pulled together my favourite Italian inspired recipes from my website.  Hopefully they will help you get a taste of la dolce vita!

1. Homemade Pizza 

If you have never made your own pizza there is literally no comparison to the ones you get from a takeaway or even from a box! By making your own dough and tomato sauce you are guaranteed a far superior pizza only to be topped if you get a real Italian to make it for you!

Three Cheese Lasagne_1

2. Three Cheese Lasagne

A really good lasagne is truly a thing of beauty and should be treated as such. They take time, effort and love and the end result should be layers of rich meat sauce, creamy white sauce and perfectly cooked pasta.

Spaghetti Bolgnese-1 copy

4. Spaghetti Bolognese

Despite growing up in an Irish family, at least once a week we channeled our inner Italian and enjoyed this Italian classic. It’s popular the world over for it’s rich flavour and simplicity. This basic Bolognese sauce is one of the first things I learnt to cook and can also be used in lasagna.

5. Stuffed Gnocchi 

This stuffed gnocchi are pillowy soft potato dumplings stuffed with a Parmesan filling and gently poached until tender served in a simple tomato sauce is still a dish of my dreams. You could also stuff the gnocchi with a ricotta and spinach filling, which would be delicious too!
