find and share great meals and recipes with people who love Italian food
Italian dishes are known for their simplicity, with many dishes having only four to eight ingredients. Italian cooks rely chiefly on the quality of the ingredients rather than on elaborate preparation. Italian food has a great variety of different ingredients which are commonly used, ranging from fruits, vegetables, sauces, meats, etc. In the North of Italy, fish, potatoes, rice, corn, sausages, pork, and different types of cheeses are the most common ingredients. But in general, traditional Italian meals consist of tomatoes, all kinds of meat, fish, and of course, cheese.
