Italian Side Dishes Michele Romano Style

Spectacular Italian Side Dishes that a mere mortal cannot resist! Treat your taste buds to my recipe for stuffed tomatoes, or perhaps my baked zucchini recipe.

Many times we succumb to plain old potatoes or plain rice to accompany our meat dishes. Why not venture into a whole new world of side dishes such as, amazing risottos, vegetable rice medleys or irresistible potato creations that will not soon be forgotten. Or try some Quinoa (which is almost a complete protein in itself) or maybe a creamy polenta side dish. The possibilities are endless!

I have many healthy side dish recipes that you will surly want to try. Stuffed Tomatoes, Swiss Chard Patties, Creamy Risotto with Mushrooms and Peas, baked Cauliflower Italiano or fried Eggplant and many more! (scroll down for more free recipes) These are just a sampling of the simple and tasty Italian side dishes that you will be able to cook up in very little time. If you really want to impress your guests you may want to give Baked Artichokes or Braised Fennel Bulb a whirl. This is what I mean about endless possibilities!

Harvest Time

From the end of June to mid October our garden supplies us with an endless selection of nourishing vegetables. Harvest time is when I really get creative with side dishes. My Dad always seems to be coming up with some delicious authentic Italian side dish (like Pigweed and Romano Beans) passed down from the Romano family generations.
