Every new season brings a host of seasonal recipes whose flavors perfectly complement each one. When it comes to Italian cuisine, this statement is no different! There are so many ways to mix and match Italian staples for springtime that the possibilities for good recipes are endless. If you’re looking for some inspiration or a new dish to cook this spring, read on for our favorite spring Italian recipes!
Ravioli ai Piselli
Just as there are many ways to mix and match pasta, there are plenty of ways to diversify your ravioli! This recipe takes a unique twist on a fan favorite by swapping out traditional grainy pasta for egg based pasta. The filling is an inviting blend of ricotta cheese and peas. Both pieces of the dish will need to be prepared separately, but the end result is well worth the effort!
Fried Zucchini Blossoms
What better way to celebrate spring blooming to life than with a recipe that’s quite literally a blossom? These fried zucchini blossoms are crispy, delicious, and healthy to boot! It’s an easy to make appetizer that you can make in bulk for your next social gathering. If this recipe sounds familiar, it’s because it is; it’s an appetizer on our menu at Bricco!
Gluten Free Pasta Primavera
One of the lesser known aspects of spring actually has to do with the season following it. You’ll need to get your body ready for summer this spring! One of the best recipes to help you accomplish this is some gluten free pasta primavera. Pasta primavera is about the closest thing you can get to pasta salad without actually having it be such. It’s a great way to help get your body ready!
This recipe is a blend of the worlds of Mediterranean cooking and Italian cooking for a beautiful harmony. You’ll get the best of both worlds while still keeping your weight goals for the summer in check! It requires a few more ingredients than the average dish, but the result will be well worth it.
