Italian

Nigella's favourite Italian inspired recipes are right here.  From old time favourites like Pasta with Ham, Peas and Cream and Minestrone in Minutes.  From Southern Italy a Lemon Polenta Cake, and to feed a crowd there is Penne alla Vodka.  Indulge in the ultimate snack with Mozzarella in Carozza, and make the classic pasta of all time with Spaghetti all Carbonara.  Finish it all off with an iced slice of Honey Semifreddo.
