Hi Everyone,

I hope all of you are safe after all of the snowstorms, nor’easters and flooding that has been sweeping the country. My prayers go out to all.

I am very proud to share the news that two of DishingwithDiane’s recipes are featured in the March/April issue of The List Magazine LI  (page 26).

It is such an honor for me to be included in this publication.

It was very meaningful to receive my printed copy on International Women’s Day and immediately thought how proud both my mother and grandmother (the two special women in my life), would be to see one of our family recipes published in a magazine to be shared with so many.

The recipes featured are Spaghetti alla Trapanese – which is a variety of a pesto sauce using almonds instead of pignoli nuts and the addition of sundried tomatoes. This dish is a perfect Lenten meal or vegetarian meal for any day of the year.

It is very easy to prepare, comes together quickly and is absolutely delicious. If you love pesto, you have to try this.


Pizza Rustica(Pizza in this case is not pizza with red sauce and cheese. Pizza in Italian means pie) – this is an Italian pie made with cured Italian meats and Italian cheeses bound together with eggs.

Pizza Rustica is served traditionally at Easter.  We would eat thin slices with an antipasto before the traditional lamb dinner and then again on Easter Monday.

Easter Monday or La Pasquetta which means little Easter; is a national holiday in Italy where families leave the city and head to the country, beaches or mountains for a family picnic. Pizza Rustica is always part of the menu. 

This particular recipe for Pizza Rustica was handed down from generation to generation in my family and it is my pleasure to share this family favorite.


I suggest you read the magazine from cover to cover. It is a pleasure to read, especially if you live on Long Island.

    How wonderful Diane! Thanks for sharing! Bobby’s Mom always made a Pizza Rustica and a braided bread with Easter eggs for our Easter dinner. How I miss her and her delicious traditions. Miss you. Janet and Bobby
