I am positive there must be at least few Italians that do not know how to cook, but during my half a year or so in Italy all the Italians I've met cooked, and cooked realy well at that. So you might just have a point there.

You are what you eat.

Speaking from personal experience?

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but rather by the moments that take our breath away.

Italian Flag Casserole

Thanks everyone for the ideas. I went with Kayelle's suggestion for the Italian Flag Casserole because I actually had quite a few of the ingredients in my overstock cupboard and my goal for this meal was to use up some overstock. I had to use fresh spinach and I subbed asparagus for the artichokes since I had some of that that needed to be used up too. Baking right now! Thanks again!!
