There is nothing that transports me to Italy faster than a really well done pasta alla checca. At its most simple, it's just marinated tomatoes tossed with fresh pasta but I've learned how to make it amazing.
When it's too hot to cook, it's time to make gazpacho. Marinating the tomatoes before you blend them together the cucumbers, peppers, bread, and vinegar, makes for a healthy summery soup that has tons of flavor!
Let's discuss this Grilled Piadina with Balsamic Eggplant and Spicy Greens. Because all things flat and bread are my jam yet I plain forgot about its existence until my last trip to Italy. A piadina is a flatbread that you see all over the Emilia-Romagna region, where it's from. I've seen them served folded in half and others rolled up, but I prefer them open face because I usually require a fork and knife to get through the loads of ingredients I've thrown on top. Though its nowhere near traditional, I load it with spicy greens, creamy mozzarella, and salty prosciutto so that its more of a meal.
