If you are thinking of trying authentic Italian cooking at home, you need to know the common ingredients used in it. These are very important because the ingredients themselves are the main focus of Italian meals. This type of cuisine goes easy on the spices and the preparation. Instead, the aim is to bring out the flavors inherent in the main ingredients themselves. So try to get good quality ingredients.

  • Shell like in shape (gnocchi)
  • Other special shapes

Pasta can be filled with various types of fillings. Flavored pasta is also used in Italian cooking. If you plan to use a layer of pasta in baking a dish, then you should use sheets of pasta. Pasta can be brought packaged or made fresh at home. Authentic Italian cooking obviously calls for home made fresh pasta.

Basil
