It's well known that Italian cooks create culinary masterpieces rich in flavor and texture with only a few simple ingredients. And this lentil soup is no exception. So magical is this savory and robust zuppa, that it is traditionally eaten at midnight on New Year's Eve to bring prosperity and luck for the new year.
But don't leave a trip to Italy up to the fates! We are Italy specialists, and when you're ready, we'll help you plan your customized Italy vacation.
Italians have strong feelings about their ingredients. They will argue over the best tomatoes to use with fish, or which sauce is best with each pasta shape.
With a few exceptions, garlic is used sparingly or not at all. No flavor should overpower another, but each ingredient should bring out the best in the others.
But the most important ingredient in every recipe? Passion, of course!
