Italian food is great because it's relatively simple. Fresh ingredients are more important than fancy techniques or equipment. We'd like to see homemade appetizers, pastas, meats, sauces, desserts, candies, beverages, or anything else that is both edible and Italian. Share your best Italian recipes for a chance to win a Kindle Fire or a Bialetti stovetop espresso pot. Mangia.
