Mob's Top 10 Italian Dishes

Italian food is about cooking a few ingredients really well. It's simple cooking at its finest. Here's our top 10 Italian dishes we know you'll love.
Dad's Puttanesca
My Dad’s Puttanesca. I grew up on this dish. So so easy to make. Mostly storecupboard ingredients. The key is lots of anchovies and garlic. Give it a go. Ben x
The Ultimate Lasagne
We have perfected the lasagne. The secret ingredient? Milk. It tenderises the meat, to leave you with the most tender ragù. Use a deep dish for lots of layers.
Aglio E Olio
Cook: 30 mins
We have perfected the aglio e olio. Lemon is key. Creating an emulsion with the olive oil & the pasta water makes the most delicious pasta you'll ever eat.
Spaghetti Vongole
Clams, Parsley, Tomatoes. It’s an absolute classic. The perfect date night meal.
Super Simple White Risotto
The most simple risotto - the onion, garlic and white wine form the perfect base for this wonderfully easy dish.
Casarecce con Salsiccia
Cook: 20 mins
Rich, tomatoey, sausage pasta topped with parmesan. Fennel seeds are key here. This dish was a favourite at Ben's Dad's Italian restaurant, Cibo. Give it a go.
Mob's Ultimate Carbonara
Cook: 25 mins
MOB's take on a classic. Absolutely no cream anywhere near this dish. Pepper, smoked bacon, egg yolk, parmesan & pasta water. Stuff dreams are made of.
The Ultimate Spag Bolly
The key to the ultimate Bolognese is milk - it tenderises the meat and evens out the acidity of the tomatoes.
Gnocchi Ragù
Chorizo takes this ragù to the next level. With piping hot gnocchi stirred through at the end - it is a phenomenal dish. A real show-stopper.
Cherry Tomato Risotto
Tomato risotto isn't that common, but this is one of the most delicious things we've ever eaten. Tomatoey & chicken stock-ey. Freshened with basil. A belter.
