    Ok… so you didn’t specify that it had to be an Italian entree… so I’m going with Tiramisu!

    I love a simple and rich garlic cream sauce over some pasta. Throw some mushrooms and chicken on top and I am in heaven!

    I love anything PASTA! I’m basically 80% noodle. And I love veal – there’s a restaurant here in Houston called Vincent’s that has an amazing dish called the Veal Vincent – yummy breaded veal served alongside the BEST fettucine alfredo you’ll ever have! Soooooo good!

    I might be Irish, but I love to eat Italian! Pasta Primavera is always a tasty dish – simple and yummy! Of course, I would never discriminate against ANY dish with pasta!

    Melissa says:

    I’m having a hard time thinking of an Italian dish that I DON’T like … unless it contains mushrooms. My favorite, though, is probably pasta with Alfredo sauce. Totally decadent, but totally delicious.

    when i was pregnant all i could eat was Ravioli from an amazing Italian restaurant. When i go there for lunch i still get it. It’s one of my favorites. It was beef stuffed ravioli with a yummy tomato sauce. Ok i think i just made myself want Ravioli for lunch today.

    Karen U says:

    My favorite Italian dish? How can someone only pick one? For a long time it was linguine with clam sauce. Baked ziti was always an easy choice. Now, I let the calories speak to me before I pick my meal. Sad, huh?

    Anna says:

    I love pasta puttanesca!! After trying it in a restaurant, I have found a recipe that I love to make at home. It is my “go to” meal when an unexpected dinner party is planned at 4:30 in the afternoon. haha!
