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

Does anyone really ever get tired of this combo?  seriously? tired?  I get that maybe some people dont think they should eat that much bread, and some people shouldnt eat so much cheese, but lets face it, this is a well worth indulgence.  Hands down, my favorite...

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...

Avocado Tomato Basil Grilled Cheese Sandwich

I love love this blog.  They focus on a lot of local producers and easy recipes, which is right up my alley.  This recipe is quite simply just delicious.  Its creamy and gooey with the added bonus of being so easy to prepare, and loaded with tons of nutrients.  The...

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,...

Tomato Tuna Melt

Cold Spring day when it should be warm out calls for comfort food.  I always love mixing the da Giulia Tomato Basil with tuna, because tuna in water is rather dry, however, the da Giulia Tomato Basil has olive oil in it, and makes the tuna so moist and coupled with...

Hummus Tomato Basil

I once catered a party where the host told me under no uncertain terms did she want Hummus served as an appetizer.  She was so passionately adament about that, even though I hadn't even suggested it, I thought that was so strange.  Especially since I love hummus and...

Mushroom Tomato Basil Crostini

I have a love/hate relationship with bread.  Love Love Love it, the crustier the better, however it doesn't really love me.  I don't always feel great if I eat a lot of white anything, so It is definitely a special occasion kind of thing and the bread has to be good,...
