An Italian Thanksgiving Feast

Last year, we had a Texas Thanksgiving with brisket, cole slaw, mac 'n cheese, and blueberry cobbler.

This year it was Festa Italiana -- complete with homemade pasta.

Need a place to dry your pasta?
We stuck cooking utensils under the plates in our cabinets.

Prosciutto, Parmesan & Breadsticks

Panzanella Salad
Fresh Pasta w/Spinach, Mushrooms and Parmesan
in a Beurre Blanc Sauce

Steaks in a Mushroom and Gorgonzola Sauce

Pannacotta w/Balsamic Raspberries
Chocolate Biscotti

I realized yesterday that we forget to serve Limoncello with dessert!

Panzanella Salad Recipe
Notes:  Added romaine lettuce and black olives; didn't use as much lemon zest & lemon juice (too acidic); made large croutons with the sourdough bread by cutting the bread into cubes and broiling them.

Pannacotta w/Balsamic Raspberries
Food Fiend:  I need your recipe for this and the biscotti!
