Recipe: Classic Minestrone

In Italian,"minestra" means "soup," usually of medium thickness, while "minestrina" means "little soup," usually a light broth. "Minestrone" means "big soup," a thick, hearty soup that could be considered a complete meal. This classic version is full of vegetables and beans cooked in a combination of our roasted chicken and brown stocks, flavored the old-fashioned way with a Parmesan rind. Toss a handful of grated Parmesan on top and add a swirl of olive oil, and you'll be transported to the hills of Northern Italy, where this soup originated.

Recipe: Duck Ragu

Ragu, a classic Northern Italian dish, is a thick hearty sauce made with red wine, tomatoes, aromatic vegetables, and, most importantly, meat, usually beef and pork.

Serve it ladled over a hearty pasta like pappardelle, or over garlicky mashed potatoes for a terrific chilly-weather meal.

Recipe: Luxurious Turkey-Mushroom Risotto

Then add splash of white wine, diced turkey, and Parmigiano. If you're in a flamboyant mood, you might shave on fresh white truffles. For the rest of us mortals, this is already a heavenly celebration that must be served immediately.

Recipe: Sicilian Tomato Pesto Fish Sauce with Spaghetti

Heady aromas emanate from this satisfying, rustic, one-dish pasta meal inspired by southern Italy.
