A bubbly, warm, saucy Italian dish on a cold, winter night? Now that’s amore! Save the caprese salads and basil pesto for the summer–this winter, we want the hearty baked dishes, crunch baguettes and creamy desserts that Italy is known for. So take your pick at a cheesy, sausage-laden pizza bread, a rich and smoky sauteed chicken or a creamy, gooey, this-is-what-dreams-are-made-of baked pasta dish. Finish it off with a riff on Tiramisu and you’ve got yourself an Italian grandmother’s hug for your taste buds.
