This meal kit takes you from antipasti to main course and all the way to dessert.
The pre-dinner tradition of antipasti is taken to new heights with a creamy Roman artichoke spread, sweet pickled Giardiniera vegetables, giant Cerignola olives, an assortment of Italian crackers and a sweet mustard from Italy’s famed butcher, Dario Cecchini. With unique corkscrew-shaped fusilli lunghi pasta, three cans of Corbara’s sweetest pomodorini, Sicilian dried oregano and Giada’s favorite prized olive oil, each bite of this pomodoro will transport you straight to Rome… Finish it all with a divine assortment of award-winning chocolate truffles from Piedmont for a true taste of La Dolce Vita.
Any great Italian dinner starts off with a bit of antipasti – aka, the smattering of snacks (and often a cocktail) to get your guests ready for the main event. With this kit, you can snack on juicy Bella Di Cerignola olives (the largest olives in the world!), crisp and sweet Giardiniera, our favorite assortment of Italian crackers, rich Roman artichoke cream and sweet Tuscan mustard to pair alongside any of your favorite aged cheeses or charcuterie. (Grab our favorite cheese pairings here!)
With three cans of super-sweet pomodorini tomatoes, you can whip up a batch of Giada’s famous Parmesan Pomodoro, made even more delicious with twisty fusilli lunghi pasta, bright and sunny Il Sole olive oil, and perhaps the most fragrant organic oregano in existence (just sprinkle it into the sauce as it cooks!). This recipe is Italian simplicity at its finest – the individual ingredients have a chance to shine, and the result is an unforgettably good meal.
No meal is complete without a bit of sweet! Tartuflanghe’s masterful truffles are the perfect rich, decadent bite to nibble on alongside some post-dinner espresso. Buon appetito!
