A Lucca Ravioli hint is make sure your pantry is well stocked a week or more before a Holiday or special event. It's the season for fried artichokes. Do you have enough olive oil, grated cheese and sea salt to make this dish? When your pantry is full all you have to buy is the artichokes.
Allow at least three days of soaking with several changes of water each day. Baccala is traditionally cook with other foods that need salt such as potatoes or tomatoes. All South America and the Latin countries of Europe eat Baccala so there are hundreds of different dishes.
The funnest thing to do is make a lasagna for Easter. You can buy fresh pasta from us or use your favorite dry pasta. We have all the ingredients. Be creative and add something to the layers, eggplant, zucchini, lamp, rabbit, grilled tofu, or sausage meat just remember that it should be cooked and very little water. Don't have time to cook it then come in and buy some ravioli and sauce from us or let our catering department prepare ravioli or lasagna for you to take home
