As you might have expected, the summer months are no different. We showcase some of our favorite Italian summer recipes to satisfy your palette below!

This recipe takes advantage of the great fruit season by infusing fresh cherries into the recipe. On a nice summer day or night, there’s nothing better than a light – yet sweet – treat!
