Pesto Alla Genovese
Italians pride themselves on using a few ingredients but using these ingredients to the best of their ability. That’s why you can’t leave Italy without trying Pesto Alla Genovese. This pasta dish is actually rather simple, but extremely effective and delicious. It features just a few ingredients, including pasta, pine nuts, olive oil, parmesan, basil, garlic, and sea salt, but it’s absolutely glorious. It’ll be a taste explosion in your mouth.
Do you love coffee? Do you love dessert? Well, we have a feeling that you’ll love Tiramisu. Although there are so many different variations of this dessert in Italy, the main concept involves layers of coffee, cocoa, and mascarpone. It’s like a stunning trifle, but one that it’s incredibly rich and creamy. Of course, you get a cool little caffeine rush at the same time. It’s everything you could possibly want and more.
Cotoletta Alla Milanese
Italians love their hearty and wholesome food, and Cotoletta Alla Milanese is a true testament to that. This dish consists of a veal cutlet that’s covered in breadcrumbs and then fried in butter. Sure, it might not be the healthiest of dishes, but it’s certainly one of the most delicious. Although the veal is often served on its own, many Italians choose to pair this meat with rocket, cherry tomatoes, and sometimes even a few potatoes.
Do we even need to explain this one? Italy is famous for its pizzas, and the best thing about this dish is that you get to play around with all kinds of flavors. Whether you want a traditional margarita or every topping under the sun, you won’t have to complain about this one.
If you’re planning a trip to Italy, you just can’t leave without trying these foods.
