Did you know that tomorrow is National Lasagna Day? We love a good lasagna around here. Do you remember Lindsey's Zucchini Lasagna? So good! And, here is the Dutch Oven Lasagna we made in our solar oven! But, there are so many other Italian foods that we enjoy, we decided that today's Friday Fave question would be...
What is your favorite Italian Dish?
(Wocka Wocka! If my son was choosing is favorite Italian "Dish", he would choose his wife who is 1/2 Italian! Her mother is from Italy, so I hope she approves of all of our choices!)
Alicia says that she loves pizza the best. She loves it cooked in a brick oven. She says, "I like how the crust is deliciously chewy and the toppings are perfectly cooked. I like a margarita pizza because it's not to heavy or greasy but just so delicious." Here is a recipe for margarita pizza found on A Beautiful Plate. We also shared my favorite Pizza Crust Recipe and the Upside Down Pizza Pot Pie recipes on this post. Alicia also makes delicious calzones, kind of a pizza hand pie, that I am twisting her arm to share on the blog.
Lindsey says that even though she loves zucchini and zoodles, her all time favorite Italian Dish is Stuffed Shells! Why? She says, "The Cheese! Stuffed shells have just always been so good to me. You have a giant noodle stuffed with cheese and covered with pasta sauce and more cheese
What could be better?" I think this would be a good recipe to share on Renny's Recipes, don't you?
Maddy goes back to the basics and picks Spaghetti as her Friday Fave. She tries to avoid eating an overabundance of meat, so she says that she loves making her own sauce with tomatoes and various veggies that make a delicious, rich, meatless sauce and then ladle it over the spaghetti pasta.
You may remember my version of Chicken Cacciatore that you can make in the Crock Pot. It is a variation of a recipe I found on Panna by Chef Anita Lo. I love chicken simmering in this sauce. The taste is so rich and delicious. The crock pot version is so simple! So, this is the recipe I have chosen to be my Fave this week.
Well, those our Italian Faves! I hope you celebrate Lasagna Day with your favorite Italian Food! Talk to you next week!

I love old fashioned spaghetti and meatballs. I make my own marinara sauce and homemade meatballs and love to serve it on thin spaghetti or rigatoni with salad and garlic bread. So yum! I make a large batch and freeze portions for future quick meals. But I also love lasagna and you've reminded me I'm long overdue on making a batch of stuffed shells. I don't know of any pasta I don't love, so bring on the Italian food! #BloggingGrandmothersLinkParty

I love so many Italian dishes, I don't think I can choose a favorite. I love lasagna, spaghetti, and pizza. I guess I need a sampler plate! Thanks for linking up at #BloggingGrandmothersLinkParty.

I can't choose a fav. Of course if I'm eating at an Italian restaurant my choice is always lasagna :) Thank you Helen for linking up at the #BloggingGrandmothersLinkParty. I shared your post on Pinterest and Twitter.
