Panzanella - classical summer Tuscan pasta dish

Origins of this dish go back to the sheep herders who while moving the sheep long distances had very little food - and that which was to be had was normally stale bread and the local vegetables found along their trails.  This dish makes the best of both ingredients.

Dolce di Ricotta - summer dessert

Many times the Italians just lump all cheese in the salata category - thinking that it is best eaten with the main course but there are some special exceptions on the menu where the cheese can go either way depending on the condiments served.  Ricotta cheese is great with either salty foods or sweet foods and in this receipe it is great as a dessert.

Ravioli Nudi (or Gnoochi gnudi)

Perhaps one of the more classical and antique dishes in all of Italy, first mentioned in a cookbook from the 1300's  written in the old Tuscan language.  These small shaped dumplings are traditionally from cheese and flour and have changed over the years to include potatoes or as in this case spinach and ricotta cheese.
