Self-appreciation really does raise our vibration and makes us feel more confident and empowered within. Dedicate a day to yourself, a day focused on loving you. Cook a delicious Italian meal for yourself, pour a glass of wine, wrap yourself in a throw and watch your all-time favourite movie. That’s how you make yourself feel loved. Here are a few Italian recipes for some self-love.
Cheesy Italian Arancini Balls
Gooey, cheesy rice enclosed in a golden crunchy crumb. You first need to prepare a cooked risotto base that takes at least 30 minutes to make, then you need to let that cool. Once it's chilled, you just portion it into balls, bread and fry them, and enjoy. They're crisp on the outside, creamy on the inside, and the perfect evening snack.
Pasta carbonara is a simple dish that adds raw eggs to hot pasta to create a creamy sauce. The heat of the pasta cooks the eggs, and a bit of crispy bacon and Parmesan cheese makes it super savory. It may seem too easy to actually taste amazing, but this beloved recipe is considered a classic for a reason.
There's nothing simpler than a Panzanella salad. It's just stale bread tossed with ripe tomatoes and whatever other seasonal vegetables you have on hand. The juice from the tomatoes soaks into the bread and fills it with flavor, and within just ten minutes you have yourself an impressive salad that's hearty enough to be a full meal.
Pasta e Fagioli
Pasta e Fagioli — aka pasta with beans — is a hearty soup that's the epitome of comfort food. It's thicker than your typical broth-based soup but more soup-like than your typical pasta dish. Serve it with crusty bread and a garnish of Parmesan and it's the perfect weeknight dinner.
Spaghetti Aglio e Olio
This pasta recipe is super easy and luscious. The sauce is just garlic that's lightly cooked in olive oil with a pinch of red pepper flakes. You can add Parmesan cheese or chopped parsley if you're feeling fancy, but just the core ingredients are delicious all on their own.
Affogato — hot espresso poured over cold ice cream — is one of those dishes that's so simple that it practically doesn't even need a recipe. It's the perfect pick-me-up after a heavy dinner or a delicious midday treat to help you power through. It's part dessert, part beverage.
