Italy Round-up and March Destination...

Hello friends, welcome to the MKMW Italy round-up! We have seven delicious entries this month so sit back, relax, and enjoy these Italian dishes...

First up is CJW at Unchained Kitchen with a hearty and flavor packed winter time meal of Greens & Cannellini Stew, it looks so welcoming and I love the use of seasonal ingredients.

~~~

Next we have Janet at the taste space with two Italian meals to share, first is a beautiful Italian Stew with Winter Squash and Chickpeas, what beautiful colors!

Also from Janet, How Not to Eat Out in New York City (An Eatalian Meal), a wonderful look into her trip to NYC and lots of information should you be planning a visit to The Big Apple any time soon and want some great Italian eats without eating at restaurants all the time.

~~~


Please welcome new traveler Glennis from Can't Believe We Ate (hi, Glennis!), she brings a beautiful yet uncomplicated pasta dish called Angel Hair with Eggs, Leeks and Cream, it looks delicious!
~~~


Peggy from Pantry Revisited was lucky enough to visit Italy last summer and that left her wanting to cook real Italian food at home, her Spaghetti with Bolognese Sauce certainly fits the bill. Looks like the perfect Italian dinner to me!
~~~

Next up is Joanna at In Search of Lost Time with Italian Wedding Soup and quite a few other Italian dishes pictured on her site, apparently it has been Italian cooking month at her house, sounds like so much fun! Love the new ravioli press :)
~~~


And last but not least, over at Nummy Kitchen I made a dish of Spinach and Ricotta Conchiglie / Stuffed Shells which was a fun dish to prepare and nice to try a more traditional Italian take on stuffed shells.

~~~

Thank you so much to our MKMW Italy participants, it was great to see the dishes you came up with and I am inspired by your creations.

We have had a few destination suggestions and I figured we'd just go with them in order of suggestion, if that's okay with everyone. First up we have Norway, so we shall travel back to Scandinavia for our March destination. Egypt is our next suggestion, so plan on a culinary trip there for April. I received an e-mail suggestion for Greece, so pack your kitchen suitcase (is there such a thing? I don't know, go with it :) ) for a trip to Greece in May.

Happy travels,
Andrea

I'm posted for Norway now...what a selection of recipes there were! I was really leaning toward pastry, but found something else that piqued my curiosity today!

Okay I made a lamb and cabbage dish that I had to cook for hours. When it was done it smelled so bad, we threw the entire thing in the trash. I don't know what was wrong, but that was going to be my entry for this month's Norway, and now I have nothing. I didn't even take a picture of the lamb stuff. GAG. Sorry - maybe next month will go better you all.
