This week I am featuring three pasta dishes because we were supposed to be leaving on Tuesday for three weeks in Italy. Our plan was to start in Milan and work southwest from there going to Parma, Cremona, Modena and Bologna. Oh, the food we were going to eat! We were also stopping in Bari to celebrate our daughter’s birthday and then over to Naples for the real deal pizza. Then we would end up in Rome with its wonderful churches and ancient ruins, not to mention some pretty fabulous cacio e pepe. But the coronavirus has upended our plans and we can only hope that someday we might be able to go again. Sigh.
Here are eight dinners we will be picking seven of to eat. I hope you will be cooking for your family or just for yourself this week.
