Italian Sauces, My Way – The E-Book!

Sharing is caring!

I always had a passion for cooking. I remember way back to my high school days in public speaking class when our first assignment was to give a live presentation on something that excited us: the topic I chose was, “How to Make an Italian Salad.” It turned out to be a big winner, I fed the whole class and got an “A”!Fast forward as a young bride where my skills in the kitchen didn’t always produce such flawless results, like the time I almost landed my dear husband in the hospital due to my lack of cooking talents.  Ahem.

When I became a new mother, convenience foods were all the rage and quite often Hamburger Helper would be served on my dinner table, but deep down inside I was determined not to feed my family from a box, instead I honed in on the recipes of my past, recreating those smells in the kitchen that were near and dear to my heart, the ones that I wanted to share with my kids, the ones that continue to link generations to one another no matter how much time has passed.

I wrote this book on Italian Sauces because to me they have always been the foundation for so many memorable meals. I encourage you to use this book as inspiration, a guide or reference book to help you showcase your own special food traditions!Italian Sauce Recipes E-book

The recipes I’ve included are not complicated or fussy, they’re user friendly plus you can have the confidence that they’ve been tried and tested over the years to make sure they came out just right!  I like to say I worked out all the kinks for you.  I also took into consideration the very busy lifestyles of today by creating shortcuts for those who want a quick homemade dinner instead of take out during the week, using fresh ingredients and things you have on hand.

Italian Sauce Recipes

When time is not an issue and you crave that slow cooked meal, I’ve given you personal family favorites, traditions from my home, because honestly, nothing beats a huge pot of sauce simmering on the stove all day, the smells enticing you with anticipation of the meal ahead.

    Love Both shrimp and Brocolini and the combination sounds wonderful. Just made pesto sauce with our fresh garden basil and parsely that we froze and added a pound of shrimp over ziti. Tip: to preserve fresh herbs and have them on hand, we use our high speed blender, and combine the parsley, basil, romano cheese and enough olive oil to make a paste and pour into an ice cube tray when solid we break them out and place the individual cubes into the freezer in a zip lock bag. this way we have fresh pesto all winter for sauces, meatballs, anything just take out a cube or two and add to the recepie. can’t beat the fresh taste all winter.

    I am a tradionalist Love my linguine with white baby clam sauce.

  2. Congratulations! Your blog is my go to site for inspiration when I feel stuck for ideas.

    This was the most delicious meal!! The meatballs were a huge hit (made with turkey and filled with mozzarella) and the sauce was DIVINE!! I served it over a small portion of bowties for the kids. Thank you for sharing your gift with us–I am looking forward to making all the sauces in your cookbook.
