One of the world’s super fish in terms of nutritional content; mackerel is easy to prepare and super tasty, in my view. The fish also leaves you feeling full and satisfied.
Minestrone is truly a peasant dish and in the old days it was made as a Spring soup with whatever vegetables the cook had in his or her home. Romano beans have a nice amount of protein and if you sprinkle a bit of grated cheese prior to consuming you’ll need to look hard to find a better soup.
Pesto tuna truly explodes with flavor and protein. I like to consume it as a main course when I’m feeling lazy and don’t want to do more than open up a can of good imported tuna in olive oil. Click here for my pesto recipe.
We get a lot wrong about Italian food in the US and it often leads to a huge consumption of calories (to make up for lost flavor). In my view, one of the keys to loosing weight (or more importantly not gaining it!) is eating super flavorful foods (if you do this you will not consume excess calories because you’ll feel full and satisfied). Try roasted eggplant parmigiana.
Another soup packed with flavor and protein that will leave you feeling full – pea soup deserves your attention!
Everyone should aim to limit their consumption of red meat in my view but if you like your beef than this Italian beef stew is a must try.
OK, ok, I just told you to limit your beef consumption but I couldn’t help include my Argentinian-Italian inspired skirt steak recipe (plus sides).
Repeat after me, “risotto is not hard to prepare” Good, now try my recipe and you’ll be amazed at how quickly you can make wild cod risotto and feel as though you’ve eaten a dish made for a king.
