What's your favorite Neapolitan dish?
Guys, curious to know: what's your favorite Neapolitan dish? For a lot of people, pizza would have to be #1--atter all, it's Naples' biggest culinary export.
But for me, the answer may lie in the name of this group. (No coincidence that I chose it!) If you've never had it, it's basically a mozzarella 'sandwich' dipped in egg and fried in olive oil. I like to serve it with a garlic and anchovy sauce. Yum!
But then there are all the wonderful dishes that my grandmother made when I was growing up: ragu, of course, known to Italian-Americans as "sunday sauce" and lasagna. But my absolute favorite was actually a simple, every day dish: pasta e lenticchie, or pasta and lentils.
All of these dishes, by the way, are featured on my blog, Memorie di Angelina.
Your question got me thinking? Are the Italian dishes that I cook, Neapolitan? That's where Nonna came from, that's what Mamma taught me, but gosh are they simply "Italian" or "Neapolitan"? I know that different regions are known for different specialties and I know that on several occasions someone has said about my recipe(s) 'Oh, my mother didn't cook that....it must be from Naples" So tell me Frankie is Spaghetti Pie Neapolitan? I've eaten mozzarella in carrozza many times but no sauce just a tomato salad.
I am Irish,Polish and Russian.I should have been Italian.In recent years I taught myself to make sauce.
I love All types of pizza,lasagna and manicotti.
I have a kettle I love to cook in.
Here we eat tomato sandwhiches,Toasted white bread,a big thick slice of homegrown tomato,a slice of american cheese and salt and pepper.It is fabulous!
