papa al tomato

First stop in Tuscany with this ultra-tomato recipe, extremely simple and, above all, very inexpensive. Comprised of brown bread, tomatoes, fresh basil, garlic and olive oil, this slow-cooked dish resembles a fairly compact soup. Serve with fresh bread drizzled with a few drops of olive oil, or a generous helping of stracciatella (or mozzarella).

Grilled pasta

This Roman dish has just four ingredients: pasta, pecorino, black pepper and guanciale. Reminiscent of carbonara sauces and cacio e pepe and considered the ancestor of Amatriciana pasta, this extremely simple recipe, which we unfortunately see too rarely in our country, is very popular in the Lazio region.

Castagnaccio

When we go to an Italian restaurant, our heart often fluctuates between the basic tiramisu and the classic panna cotta, but there are also other Italian desserts, such as castagnaccio, an exquisite chestnut pie that is very popular in the north of the country, especially in the regions of Tuscany, Piedmont and Emilia- Romagna. A very autumnal recipe garnished with various toppings according to local traditions (raisins, walnuts or even pine nuts).
