Cooking with Da Giulia

 

Hello, and welcome to the Da Giulia blog! I set out in this blog to show that so many recipes include Tomatoes or Tomato Sauce, and if that don’t, it’s always pretty easy to incorporate them in the recipes.  Now, I am a little biased on the brand of pasta sauce to use, because I am in the Pasta Sauce business, and own a line of pasta sauces under the name da Giulia.   I can honestly say the business was born, on a desire to bring my family recipes to others. 

Tomato Basil Fresh Mozzarella Crostini

Spaghetti Carbonara

I have a go to in Italian restaurants when I don't know what to order. I order the Spaghetti Carbonara because I always like to see how different it can be made.  Twists on the basic carbonara which is pasta, with pancetta, parmesan cheese, and egg, can be anything...

Gnocchi Pesto

Growing up in my Italian household, I suspect I had homemade Gnocchi more than most non Italians, however, that said, we still didn't dine on it very often.  I want to say maybe 3-4 times a year.  When we did though, it was a big treat.  I still can remember the long...

Spaghetti Tomato Basil and Fresh Mozzarella

So we made a Tomato Basil Panini the other day, and because we don't like waste, and we were in a hurry, we went for the obvious, Pasta!  I get it that is so easy to make a recipe that is only 4 ingredients, but in general, I don't want a blog with difficult recipes,...

Tortilla Soup

This Tortilla soup has been a family favorite for the last 15 years. Its hearty, flavorful, loaded with nutrients and a perfect soup for cold winter days. The beauty of it is, there a few ingredients that cant be omitted, but there are multiple ingredients that can be...

Pasta Pomodoro

Pasta with fresh mozzarella, basil, and tomatoes, over linguine, has to be the most simple, yet fresh, delicious and and gourmet meals one can enjoy.   Here is the beauty with this dish, beside the taste, everything can be done in one pot: boiling the noodles, heating...

Eggs In Purgatory

I love this dish for many reasons: First- it so easy to make and contains ingredients I always have on hand.  I always have pasta sauce and I always have eggs.  Truly that is all you really need to make this dish, however, there are lots of ways to doctor up the...
