Recipes from Aunt Lena’s Cucina
Spaghetti Gravy, or “sauce” if you’re a fancy pants chef, is a staple in Italian cuisine. So, it’s not surprising Aunt Lena has her very own take on the traditional recipe. As Aunt Lena often says, “You gotta make your own gravy!”
Macaroni with Sausage and Zucchini is a perfect recipe for quick weeknight dinners made from things usually found around the house. (Especially if you’re Italian!)
These recipes are from Aunt Lena’s Cucina, Anne-Louise and Aunt Lena’s very own cookbook! A.L.’s motto when it comes to food is Eat to Live and Live to Love, and that’s the underlying message of the wonderful collection of Italian-American recipes included.
Not surprisingly, these simple-to-prepare family recipes make perfect sense in a world where everyone is concerned about nutrition and a healthy way of life. Good food, good life, and love are intertwined in every recipe. We all need food, life, and love. Who better to give us all a helping hand than Aunt Lena herself?!
