Which is the first Italian cooking recipe you think of?

Hi to everybody! I just read some of your 'American typical recipes' and I wonder:
When you think about Italy, Tuscany and Italian cooking in general, which are the main cooking recipes that you think of? And, which are the recipes you'd like to learn cooking?

Thanx! Simona!

most of us here in the USA probably think of pasta of some type, perhaps a soup like minestrone, perhaps pizza. One of my favorites is Rabbit stew from Liguria, and capponata from Sicily.

I'd say Spaghetti. But what do I know, I'm Russian, oh, no wait, scratch that. I'm Ukrainian, oh, no wait scratch that one too. I'm Jewish, oh, no that is not a nationality, scratch that one too. I'm American. Neah, I, maybe, am a citizen, but not really an American, scratch that one too. ... Well I guess I'm a man without a land.

Anyway the first time I ate Italian food, was back when I was in Italy and got invited to an Italian family for diner. We were treated to spaghetti. So that is why I think of it.

Anyway, tell us more about your self. How did pretty Italian girl got a name like Simona?

Mm, I like your site. The recipes 5-6-8, but cakes 22, that is my kind of cooking, or rather eating, personaly I do not like baking.

Ravioli...one of my favorite things! Unfortunately, all the old Italian grandmothers who used to make it around here are gone now.
