If you were a kid growing up in the sixties, in a typical middle class family, anywhere in the USA, you’ll recognize what I’m about to say as the truth.
Chef Boyardee = Italian cooking
I can not even begin to estimate how many cans of ravioli, spaghetti and lasagna were consumed in my childhood home. It was a lot. I’m not saying that my Mother didn’t cook, that’s certainly not the case. But, Chef Boyardee did a fair amount of cooking in the house too.
Now some seventy years later, the Chefs granddaughter, Anna Boiardi, is out with a cookbook of their families favorite dishes. And, it has some fantastic, classic Italian fare.
ALERT: If you are hoping to find the secret recipe for Beefaroni in this cookbook, you will be disappointed. But, you will find a recipe for a killer paglia e fieno.
