Italian Favorites 2009 Special Issue
This special double-issue is packed with dozens of recipes sure to please any palate in search of authentic Italian cuisine - from a quick weeknight meal of Spaghetti and Meatballs to a long-simmering Bolognese Sauce that is well worth the wait, to sweet and savory Italian desserts like Biscotti and Panna Cotta. Featured recipes include recipes from the familiar, like Fettuccine Alfredo, Chicken Piccata, Eggplant Parmesan, and Pizza Margherita to the unexpected, like Vegetable Torta, White Beans with Tomatoes, Garlic and Sage, and Mushroom Lasagna, to restaurant-worthy desserts including Chocolate Hazelnut Cake and Fig-Walnut Tart. And as with all recipes from America's Test Kitchen, we test each recipe, 20, 30, sometimes more than 50 times, to guarantee they will work in your kitchen - the first time and every time. We've also included up-to-date equipment ratings and blind taste tests on supermarket ingredients so you can shop and cook smart.
