Buon Giorno da Ringraziamento con la Tony Soprano gnocchiatta!

Dear readers, listeners and fellow bloggers:

Good afternoon. Yesterday we had a fabulous family dinner for Thanksgiving and we topped it with stimulating conversations and then watching an action-packed James Bond movie (Spectre) 

Did we eat the classic Turkey meal? We confess we did not. The popular vote said otherwise. What?

Corretto!!!  We cooked a gnochiatta with the Tony Soprano tomato sauce recipe we had last week.

Buon appetito!

Stay distant. Stay safe. Stay beautiful.

What do you think? Please tell us.

Don’t leave me alone.

Gnocchiatta Italia Campione Euro Cup 2021

Dear readers and fellow bloggers:

Good morning. Yesterday we had the unexpected happiness of seeing the Italian Football team conquer the 2021 Edition of the Euro Cup in the mythical Wembley Stadium in London, England. Even though England started as the candidate for the cup, the Italian team ,under the guidance of Mancini, showed that it was a competitive and enthusiastic squad, erasing years of frustrations. With our son Gian Luca, we enjoyed the victory of Argentina in the Copa América on Saturday and the victory of Italia in the 2021 Euro Cup last night. A raddoppio for proud Italian-Americans like us.

In order to properly celebrate we prepared a Gnocciatta with a sauce of San Marzano tomatoes, ground beef and walnuts, which was topped by a ball of burrata cheese to melt at the last moment.

Once the sauce was ready, Gian Luca cut the burrata cheese ball so the cream would burst out.

Once the burrata cheese melts, it is time to mix all the ingredients with a slow burning fire.

This is how the dish should look like. Do not overcook the pasta. Turn the heat off and let it stand.

This serving was especially dedicated to our distinguished readers. Please join us in the celebration.

Buon appetito!

Complimenti a la squadra Azzurra per vincere il campionato d’Europa 2021. Forza Italia !!! 

Stay distant. Stay safe. Stay beautiful.
