WELCOME TO MANGIA BENE PASTA
Your place for traditional Italian recipes
 
We celebrate Easter on the first Sunday following the first full moon of
spring; this year it is April 20.  In addition to the many religious
observations at Easter time, there is a traditional Italian Easter feast
with a great deal of symbolism found in the foods prepared.
Some useful food words or terms that you may find in
Italian recipes, while dining at an Italian restaurant, or traveling in Italy.
RECOMMENDED PRODUCT
Fresh pasta is rich in flavor, lighter in density,
and gives you flexibility in making different
shapes and cuts.  Whether you're rolling out
sheets of lasagna or slicing strands of
fettuccine, this classic, hand cranked pasta
machine is up to the task.  We have owned
this brand of pasta machine for over 20 years
and can highly recommend its quality and
durability.  If you want to make fresh pasta,
pay a little more for a good pasta machine
and it will last you a lifetime.
Artichokes Stuffed with Breadcrumbs, Olives, Parmesan, Capers, and Herbs
Stuffed artichokes are one of the most common
ways of eating artichokes in Italy. They make a
nice accompaniment to lamb on Easter.
