Regional Italy Round-up

Welcome to the regional Italy round-up!  We have three lovely dishes to share, I hope they leave you inspired!

First up we have an absolutely gorgeous Caprese Salad from Corina at Searching for Spice. Caprese Salad comes from the region of Campania.  The beautiful colors in this dish are that of the Italian flag.


Margaret at Tea and Scones temps us with a hearty bowl of Gnocchi Bolognese from the region of Emilia Romagna. She has inspired me to buy a gnocchi board with her informative post. 


Over at Nummy Kitchen I made a pasta dish with bucatini and eggplant, Bucatini con Melanzane Spappolate from the region of Calabria in the southern tip of Italy.


Thanks for sharing your dishes, Corina and Margaret!  

Time to head The Land Down Under for October, our destination is Australia!  I will put up a destination Australia post soon with a link area to leave a link to your post, in the mean time, head to the library (or google, or if you're lucky -- your own bookshelf) and find something to make from Australia.
