    Pesto isn't pesto without garlic, imo, but not very much. Americans put too much garlic in everything.

    As to whether to toast the pinoli, I've never seen them toasted for this.

    The oil used is extremely important. Ligurian oil is extremely light, not peppery like Tuscan oil or heavy like southern oil. You should use the least heavy oil you can find.

    Enjoy. :)



    We often mix boiled potatoes and green beans with the trofie pasta and dress the whole thing with pesto.

    Acqua cotta for Toscana, though? Maybe bistecca alla fiorentina, or ribollita, or crostini di fegato or biscotti?


    Ribollita is more like a potage or a vegetable stew than like minestrone, which I NEVER order in American restaurants.


    Crostini:

    For Emilia/Romagna there are too many so it was an impossible choice...tagliatelle alla bolognese, lasagne, and on and on.

    Lasagne:


    That's how it's done...my only complaint, signora, is that you should have put more sauce...it came out too dry.

    Same for Campania. It's a shame to reduce it to pizza.

    Liguria would have to be something with pesto if you're going to choose just one, so that was ok.

    I guess it's the nature of a list like this.

    For Lombardia cotoletta alla milanese has to be a close runner up. Probably one of my favorite meat dishes.



    I prefer it like that, but a lot of people prefer the thinner, butterflied version: not for one, of course.

    @Angela
    Yes. The purpose was to choose just one per region. I'm sure it's not easy to do it, especially in Italy. :)
    I loved the images of the video I posted, btw.
    Dish chosen for Lazio seems especially great.
    As for pizza, Margherita is my favorite. Pizza is really an emblematic "dish" of Campania, isn't it?

    This was my favorite dish at childhood: agnolini soup. Brodo has "carne lessa" (boiled in water):

    This is one of the few videos I've found on youtube which show a decent version of how to make Italian-American tomato meat "gravy" for pasta.

    Nonna Anna's meatballs had pork and were much softer than those look to be, maybe partly because she handles the meat too much. The bones she sautees are pork and beef bones.

    If you're using cans of imported peeled whole plum tomatoes from Naples, you'd add olive oil to warm pan, saute onion and garlic, then add the tomatoes (which you've broken up a bit by hand), and simmer until it breaks down into a sauce. Add some basil too. Or, you could buy cans of imported Italian pureed tomatoes.

    Foreigners try "Real Genovese" pesto, not the overly garlickly stuff they sell here.

    This series is the only Buzz Feed content I watch: it's about food, no politics, and it sometimes helps out small restaurants.

    I love lasagna, and this showcases it.



    If I'm to be honest, however, I think the "winner" put way too much tomato in the "Bolognese" sauce, and too much sauce in the lasagna.

    To me, this is what the finished product is supposed to look like, but perhaps that's partly a reflection of how they make it in my area.



    We eat the green version a lot too:
