authentic roman recipes

Here you’ll find my Authentic Roman recipes. 

I live in Rome, so most of these are the dishes I grew up eating.

Roman cuisine is rich in cheese, pasta, eggs, and vegetables: the ingredients that the countryside surrounding the city provides. 

Try the stracciatella soup for Boxing Day, the zozzona pasta to indulge – a lot -, the Amatriciana pasta for an everyday tasty treat, pizza bianca on a baking Sunday, and artichokes to dine like a king with nothing but veggies!
