Every holiday is fit for pasta (and risotto), but pasta!
(If your google translate says, “striped feathers,” this is a silly translation meant to be “penne rigate.”)
Butter Cardamom Sugar Cookies!
I had to look up “chiena”. Somehow I missed it in my vocabulary, but it means “filled”, which is usually the word, “ripiena.” (S’okay.)
Growing up, I remember enjoying the Fourth of July Grill at home and having some Italian dinner sides kitchen cooked indoors. Risotto for later in the evening is one of my favorites! Thought I would post it, also because it seems to coincide and anyway, I wanted to post some summer zucchini recipes. So I did. There are more, later on down this day’s page.
Happy Zucchini Fourth of July!

One nice thing for an antipasto tray is an appetizer which stacks vegetables from the grill! (That was my own idea and nobody else’s.)
A lot of people wouldn’t think of eggplant parmesan as something to want to have for lunch in the summertime. No, it makes no sense to have that kind of autumn-y dish on a June table. But, if you look at it even unconventionally, you can, put your porcelain oven dish into the refrigerator and let it cool overnight. This is so delicious cold at lunch in the summer; but then again, everyone might have already known that.
