Cheesy Tomato Gnocchi

Gnocchi is a great addition to soups and stews and even meaty casseroles, or anywhere you might use potatoes. They’re even great sautéed with fresh herbs like sage and thyme then sprinkled with Parmigiano Reggiano just before serving.

Bucatini alla Reggina: Calabrian Style

It’s not the Queen we’re talking about here. It’s a double ‘g’ and ‘reggina’ actually refers to Reggio Calabria, that section of the Calabrian peninsula that looks straight across the narrow strip of sea known as the Strait of Messina to Sicily.

Eggplant Roll-Ups

My grandkids love this dish because they're roll-ups filled with sauce and pasta. The eggplant doesn't bother them in the least and the fresh herbs I use just add tons of flavor.

Saucy Shells

This dish only takes 20 minutes to make because of the sauces that have already been handcrafted to perfection by us. Shell pasta is ideal because it naturally grabs nice hunky chunks of our thick spicy Tomato 'Nduja.
