In our home, comfort food comes in the form of Great Italian Meals! When it comes to Italian meals, there’s always one pasta sauce or another in the freezer ready to go if needed! And the pantry shelves are always loaded with different pastas ready to use with those sauces. Parmesan reggiano is always fresh and ready to be grated. At times, I’ll put together a fresh marinara, bolognese, or pesto sauce on the spot because I always have the necessary ingredients on hand. What can I say? I’m Italian, and that’s how it was my home as a child and is now in my home as an adult!

That’s why I love being Italian! Every big decision or family discussion is done at a table with plenty a food to indulge in while coming together as a family. Italian families actually use food as way of sharing love, friendship, happiness, and sometimes even sadness. A good Italian meal served with a good Chianti can be very relaxing and yes, even comforting. Being very expressive in so many ways, for an Italian, food is just another extension of expressing ourselves, and we do so with great passion!

Of course, there are all the breads and sides as well, but this review is about the main dishes. Bread recipes and sides are wonderful, but it’s the main courses people tend to love. So for now, here is a review of some of the Great Italian Meals that I love and have shared with you on my blog in the past.

Take a look at these recipes, especially if you haven’t seen them yet! These Great Italian Meals just may become some of your comfort foods as well, so enjoy!

    • It is really very good and healthy as well! We love it. If you look at my Fresh Roma Tomatoes and Spinach Pasta…With Olive Oil and White Wine, you will see the use of fresh tomatoes and wine with baby spinach. This recipe has a little different taste because of these ingredients making it very slightly “sweet” in taste. It just depends on what you are looking for in flavor, but both are healthy and taste wonderful!

    • Thanks! If you were here, I would gladly make one for you! They’re really delicious. Hope you get a chance to try some. Thanks for stopping by!
