5 Classic Italian Dishes
Spaghetti with Pork Bolognese
A rich bolognese sauce with plenty of meat feels like the old-world Italian dish but fits in the new-world nutrition sense. One online reviewer claims, "I like any spaghetti sauce that sneaks in tons of veggies." Note: A little liquid remaining in your bolognese sauce helps coat the pasta.

Layers of thin-sliced eggplant replace the meat in this cheesy lasagna recipe. Use the eggplant within a day or two of purchase for the best flavor.
Toasted Rye Bread Panzanella
A classic meal with origins from Tuscany, this dish is most well-known for being a summer favorite.
Brown Butter Gnocchi
Pair pasta-like potato gnocchi with spinach and Parmesan for a light and flavor-packed dish in minutes.
