And here she does the same—helps you put a fabulous dinner on the table tonight, for friends or just for the kids, with a minimum of fuss and a maximum of flavor.

Dried Organic Rosemary: No herb is more quintessentially Mediterranean than rosemary, and there’s no dried rosemary more intensely aromatic than this version from Filippone. The woody plant thrives in sunny, dry climates, and it grows wild across much of southern Italy, where its unmistakable scent perfumes the coastal breezes. This rosemary is grown on a small family farm in Sicily and dried right on the branch, so there's no doubt about what you're getting.

Nodi Marini Pasta: loosely twisted coils of pasta, so named because they resemble the complicated rope knots that all sailors must know. One of Giada’s favorite shapes, she discovered it on a trip to Italy and was determined to bring it back to the U.S.! In Puglia, it’s sometimes known as molloni (“springs”), while in parts of Naples it’s known as vesuvio, in honor of the great volcano Vesuvius that towers over the region. No matter what you call it, each knotty bite is a delight.

Penne Rigate Pasta: One of the most well-known pasta shapes in the world, penne rigate, are medium-length tubes that trap delicious sauce in the ridges that run down their sides. "Rigate" means grooves - given that this type of penne has grooves on the surface of each penna. The grooved version allows the sauce to adhere to its surface, making every mouthful rich and tasty!

Organic Peranzana Grand Cru Extra Virgin Olive Oil: With an elegant balance of flavors, this grand cru Peranzana olive oil from Bio Orto is an exceptional example of organic Italian olive oil. Unlike some extra-virgin olive oils, it’s not aggressively spicy or bitter—instead, those notes are held in harmony with a welcoming, mild fruitiness. This oil is made only using Peranzana olives, a variety that is emblematic of the Pugliese province of Foggia, where it is well-loved both as a table olive and for its oil.

San Marzano Tomato D.O.P. Whole Hand-Peeled in Tomato Juice: There's a reason the name San Marzano is world-famous, and these canned tomatoes from I Sapori di Corbara are the proof. Grown in Agro Sarnese-Nocerino near the base of Mount Vesuvius, at the heart of the only region that can claim true San Marzano status, these plump tomatoes are hand-peeled and packed whole in tomato juice, ready to make your homemade tomato sauce world-famous, too.

Gran Riserva Classic Aged Carnaroli Rice: Often called the "king of Italian rice," Carnaroli is the risotto variety for cooks in the know. With a higher starch content and firmer texture than the arborio you may see at the grocery store, this rice makes an ultra-creamy, restaurant-quality risotto that's almost impossible to overcook.
