Some of Our Favorite Italian Spring Dishes

One of our favorite things about Spring is getting to enjoy delicious seasonal dishes, featuring produce that's at its peak during Spring months. With each new season, come new flavors and colors and with Spring that means a lot of green! Asparagus, artichokes, peas, and fava beans are among some of the most used ingredients in our favorite Spring dishes.

The following are a few of our favorite Italian or Italian-inspired Spring recipes. Any or all of these dishes would pair well with our Feu d'o Bianco, Tifeo Bianco, or Rosato.


Carciofi alla Romana (Roman style artichokes)

 

Grilled artichokes are one of the staples of Southern Italian Spring cuisine. We love ours up 'alla Romana' style with white wine, lemon, and garlic. Try this simple recipe from Eataly to grill up your own Carciofi alla Romana at home.

Serve with a glass of our Tifeo Bianco or Rosato.

 

Crostini con Piselli

In Italy there's a crostini for every season, and in Spring these favored 'little toasts' are often enjoyed topped with fresh ricotta and Spring peas.  

This version of Crostini con Piselli from Eataly incorporates mint and lemon, resulting in an incredibly bright, fresh and delicious medley of flavors that pair perfectly with a minerally, bright white wine such as our Tifeo Bianco.

Wild Asparagus, Arugula, & Goat Cheese Frittata

 

A nice frittata is good any time of year but with fresh wild asparagus and goat cheese it's a quintessentially Spring dish that can be served for brunch, lunch, or alongside other dishes for dinner.

Try this recipe from Italian Food Forever and enjoy with a glass of our Feu d'o Bianco or Tifeo Bianco.

Pesce al Salmoriglio

 

This fresh fish dish featuring salmoriglio sauce, a classic Sicilian sauce that dates back to the time of the Greeks, is perfect for a light Spring dinner course.

Again, Eataly has a fantastic (simple yet perfect) recipe for Pesce al Salmoriglio.

Pair this dish with our Tifeo Rosato (nerello mascalese rosé).

Creamy Lemon and Asparagus Risotto


Lemon and asparagus brighten up this creamy risotto dish, making it the perfect dish to serve alongside a fish or meat dish or on its own as a light meal. We like this recipe from Italian Food Forever.

This dish pairs excellently with our Tifeo Bianco or Feu d'o Bianco.
