What's your favorite Italian dish?

I'm partial to a good lasagna myself.
But I guess Giada de Laurentiis may be slightly ahead of the lasagna.

Vitello Alla Romana
Breaded veal baked with Italian ham & cheese, served with wine sautéed mushrooms. Yummy

I agree with both of your sentiments sir. Though occasionally, I can be feeling something more like a pasta primavera when I need something a bit lighter.

Ravioli - but not the Chef Boyardee bland kind. Lobster ravioli in a vodka sauce, pumpkin ravioli in a brown butter sauce or three cheese ravioli with a fresh marinara sauce.

I have my own pasta machine and ravioli mold and I know how to use them.

I bought these pumpkin ravioli but never knew what to put on them, the typical red sauce didn't seem appropriate. Brown butter sauce is noted, thank you

Lasagne with bolognese and balsamella (bechamel) layers.

Veal parmigiana would be second.

A brown butter sauce with sage is very good with the pumpkin. You can also do a light gorgonzola cream sauce drizzled on the top.

Wow, that sounds so good. Now I'm hungry and I'm trying to watch what I eat (both because of the season and because my wife and I just decided it was time that we both make a committment to doing so). Not cool.

You need to know where to look for healthy recipes: Pumpkin Ravioli with Gorgonzola Sauce from Cooking Light magazine. You don't even need to make your own pasta for this one.

That sounds great but I'm confused. When do I remove the pumpkin ravioli from the freezer bag?

When the cooking water is boiling.

I also like using a gorgonzola cream sauce over butternut squash ravioli. My cream sauce is made with whipping cream, gorgonzola cheese, white pepper and nutmeg.

Properly made, Chicken Piccata. Hands down. Made with Pinot Grigio in summer and a nice Gavi in the cold months.
