If you’ve been keeping up with our blog, you’d know that our major focus has been fashion, fashion, fashion. After all, it’s one of the best ways to express yourself in color, style and freedom.

 

We thought we’d change it up a little by sharing another palette of Italy that is just as vibrant and rich: cuisine.

 

Whether it’s pasta, pizza or gelato, Italy is just as famous for its precedence in fashion as in food— so why don’t we take a look at some of the recipes of Italy you can easily make in your home?

Italian Baked Chicken

 

 

 

Ingredients:

  • Boneless chicken breasts

  • Fresh garlic

  • Fresh basil

  • Fresh parsley

  • Olive oil

  • Tomatoes

  • Thyme

  • Oregano

  • Paprika

  • Cheese (optional)

 

An Italian chicken recipe is one of the best ways to spend an evening fine dining, especially because the food is overall very lean and healthy. And the aroma of the thyme and garlic are definitely going to make mouths water!

 

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees and (optional) pound the chicken breasts

  2. Create a mixture of salt, pepper, thyme, garlic, oregano and paprika and sprinkle over the chicken

  3. Add in olive oil to your liking and marinate the chicken on both sides with the oil and spice mixture; let sit for 15 minutes

  4. Get a baking dish and spread oil around, placing the marinated chicken within

  5. Slice up tomatoes and arrange the slices on the sides or scattered, however you’d like

  6. Cover the dish within the oven for ten minutes

  7. Once ten minutes are up, uncover the dish and leave the breasts to cook until the chicken’s internal temperature reads 165 degrees

  8. When the temperature is reached, take the chicken out of the oven and sprinkle parsley and basil over the top as well as any cheese you’d like, as garnishes

 

You’re all set!

 

 

 

Scrumptious Lasagna

 

 

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb of cooked lasagna noodle

  • 2 jars (16 oz) meatless sauce

  • 1 lb of ricotta cheese

  • 1 cup of grated parmesan cheese

  • 2 lbs of ground beef

  • 2 beaten eggs

  • ½ cup of chopped onion

  • 1 teaspoon of salt

  • 2 chopped up garlic cloves

  • 2 teaspoons of Italian seasoning

You can never go wrong with lasagna— it’s the closest food that resembles a warm hug. Indulge in an Italian night with the scrumptious lasagna and glass of milk. Cheese, garlic, onion, sauce... it’s the Italian way!

 

  1. Follow lasagna noodle packaging instructions— be sure the noodles are both tender and firm

  2. Drain the noodles and keep them warm

  3. Toss the ground beef, garlic and onion in an oiled skillet until the beef is cooked to your liking

  4. Sprinkle in the meatless sauce, salt and Italian seasoning and stir

  5. Simmer the mixture in the skillet on low burn for 15 minutes while prepare a separate bowl with the beaten eggs, mozzarella cheese and ricotta cheese

  6. Now it’s time for the fun— grease a large baking pan and put together the first layer of noodles (make sure the noodles hang over the sides of the pan)

  7. Pour in beef, sauce, ricotta cheese and mozzarella cheese mixture

  8. Add another layer of pasta and then pour on top the aforementioned mixture (keep at this process until all noodles and sauce is used)

  9. Fold over the layers of the pasta that were at the edges back over the top and smooth over remaining sauce as the final layer

  10. Sprinkle over the lasagna parmesan cheese and bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 45 minutes

 

Bon appetit!
