Chopping prosciutto - Beyond the Pasta - Mark Leslie

Sharing a recipe is more than just giving a friend a “cool, new dish to try.”  A recipe says who you are: Are you spicy like a peperoncino?  Are you laid back and comfortable like a simply toasted panino or are you hearty and stoic like a big slice of lasagna?

Here are some recipes that I’d like to share with you ~ some are from my book, Beyond the Pasta, which are the recipes Nonna shared with me, and others are from my kitchen.  Hmmm, I wonder what these dishes say about me?
