To be honest, many people believe that Italy is well known for pizza and pasta. However, Italy has a diverse number of foods throughout its regions. Pizza was introduced to the north from the south of the country a while after World War 2 whereas the north introduced both risotto and polenta to the south. The introduction to fast foods from the United States has added more food choices to the country as well.

Apart from just pasta and pizza, Italy is well known for the 400 types of cheeses they have made. Parmesan, mozzarella and asiago are some of the most popular cheeses around the world all from Italy.

      Mmmmmm! Adding mozzarella is brilliant. Next time I make alfredo you can be sure I'll have a big chunk of it ready to go. Did you use fresh or the preserved (not fresh) kind? I don't know what the legit term is. Would either work?
