Our Italian Traditional Easter Dinner




Tortellini Soup
I was tagged to do a post on Easter Special dishes from Suzanne @You Made That?  and
Lizzy @ That Skinny Chick Can Bake  and Patti @Comfy Cuisine
The idea of the game is to create a menu for Easter just from my blog recipes.  Lamb is our tradition.  We will be having a total Italian traditional dinner. If you are interested in any of the recipes I’m sharing today just click on the photo and it should take you to the recipe.  Thanks Suzanne, Lizzy and Patti  for thinking of me!

Claudia said...

What gorgeous memories and grand times you brought back. It's been a long time since I had a true Italian Easter - now it's part Italian and part Midwestern - and that's fine but you did make me long for your pasta, lamb, Sambuca (!!!***). Buona Pasqua, Claudia.

Oh my goodness! I'm originally from Astoria-Queens and grew up in an Irish-Italian neighborhood and so I used to go often on sunday to my best friend Ann Graci's house for an ALL DAY lunch and had all this wonderful dishes and of course later, with my Italian borfriends out to eat...and my all time fav is Italian, I make my own pasta at home, always, like a mama! Wish I was going to your house for all this food!
Thank you for dropping by and for the sweet comments...thaks too for this great recipes!

Your dinner or I should say feast looks amazing. The tortellini soup is a meal in itself! We have lamb here in our house too, or turkey or salmon if it's hot like it is today. Mostly because I don't eat ham. :D I'm glad you were tagged too...so I can check all these recipes out.

Dee said...

Oh my gosh! I want to come to your house to eat! This all looks fabulous :)

FABBY'S LIVING said...

Claudia, I'm also your newest follower...I don't want to miss your Italian cuisine, for sure! Hope you come back and follow back, so we can be good blog friends!

I love stuffed artichokes, the whole meal looks fantastic!! My grandmother always did the traditional lamb but I haven't done it in years. I didn't see any Pupa cu'lovas!! :)

Joanne said...

What a feast. It looks so good. I have to try stuffed artichokes. I've only had them once or twice but would love to try them at home.
