Italian cuisine is probably one of the most popular choices for Americans to enjoy. It is characterized by its simplicity, with many dishes having only four to eight ingredients. Italian cooks rely chiefly on the quality of the ingredients rather than on elaborate preparation (I'm all over that!!) Bravissimo!!!!
Ingredients and dishes vary by region in Italy:
Italian cuisine has a great variety of different whole-food ingredients ranging from fruits, vegetables, sauces, meats, etc. In the North of Italy, fish (such as cod, or baccalà), potatoes, rice, corn, sausages, pork, and different types of cheeses are the most common ingredients. Traditional Central Italian cuisine uses ingredients such as tomatoes, all kinds of meat, fish, and pecorino cheese. In Southern Italy, tomatoes – fresh or cooked into tomato sauce – peppers, olives and olive oil, garlic, artichokes, oranges, ricotta cheese, eggplants, zucchini, certain types of fish (anchovies, sardines and tuna), and capers are important components in the local cuisine. Pasta dishes with use of tomato are popular in all of Italy. (Source)
