Cara Di Falco’s Easter Food Guide

Cara Di Falco’s Easter Food Guide

Jelly beans and chocolate bunnies may be Easter staples, but we’ve got some delicious ideas from none other than Cara Di Falco.

HipNJ’s Maria Falzo gets a quick culinary tour of Italy, courtesy of Cara’s amazing Easter dishes.

Our first stop is Nonni’s Spinach Torta, which was introduced to Cara by her great-grandmother from the Piedmont region of Italy. This dish bursts with green colors and herbaceous flavors, meant to symbolize the beginning of spring. With hearty flavors like spinach, sautéed onion and parmesan cheese, this dish will quickly become a favorite for your family. If you need a gluten free option, you can omit the bread crumbs!

Next, we head to Southern Italy and are making Grammy’s Pizza Gain or Pizza Rustica. After fasting for Lent and not eating a lot of meat, this dish rewards you with ham, pepperoni, sweet Italian sausage meat and fresh cheeses. Cara’s recipe makes two, but can easily be modified. Trust us, you’ll want to make two.

Our last stop is a bit on the sweeter side. Cara’s opting to keep it light and fresh with her Strawberry Compote with Whipped Ricotta. This dish is perfect for a lighter dessert or a sweet appetizer, but it really shines as part of an Easter Brunch.
