A Week of Meals by Il Villaggio
Monday: Hearty Italian Pasta
Mondays are hard, so dinner should be quick & easy to make.
This hearty Italian Pasta is full of bold, fresh flavors, and it takes just a few minutes to make.
Pair the Mozzarella with fresh vegetables, cubed pepperoni and a light dressing for a filling meal that doesn’t weigh you down.
Tuesday: Smoky Italian Mac ‘n’ Cheese
Creamy, cheesy goodness with an Italian twist. The Italian Speck (a sort of gourmet smoked, cured ham, native to Northern Italy) makes this three-cheese macaroni a complete meal.
This recipe is one that both kids and adults can enjoy, and you’ll find yourself coming back to it again and again.
Wednesday: Butternut Farrotto (Risotto) with Taleggio and Sage
The perfect meal for the middle of the week. The firm texture of farro makes it ideal for a savory risotto dish, while the nutty aromatics of butternut squash and Il Villaggio Taleggio bring the spirit of fall into your kitchen. Topped with sage, the end result is a creamy, rustic dish that warms the soul.
Thursday: Pasta in Creamy Fontina-Vodka Sauce
Traditional vodka sauce is delicious on its own, but when paired with our earthy Fontina, it becomes incredible.
We use two of our favorite cheeses, Grana and Fontina, a sweet tomato sauce base and a dash of vodka and heavy cream to create a truly sensational Italian dinner.
Friday: Italian 4-Cheese Panini
Fridays: you’re exhausted from the week, but excited about the weekend. What’s for dinner?
How about a crisp, melty Italian Panini? Prosciutto and baby spinach layered with Mozzarella, Fontal, Provolone and topped with a creamy gorgonzola dressing, making each bite of this sandwich as tantalizing as the next.
Saturday: Caprese Sandwich on Ciabatta
A light yet hearty sandwich, perfect for busy weekends. This sandwich balances bold prosciutto with avocado, mozzarella and tomatoes. Drizzled with a bit of oil and vinegar, making this sandwich is rich in flavor.
