When you think of famous Italian dishes, it is likely that you consider fresh spaghetti, smothered in meat sauce. You might imagine succulent sausages mixed in with homemade pasta or clams in a rich white sauce.
On the other hand, there are those who imagine a green salad, made with fresh Italian ingredients and herbs. Unfortunately, some vegetarians feel as if they are left in the dark, unable to eat many of the delightful delicacies found on a traditional Italian menu. This could not be further from the truth.
