Easy Italian lunch

Easy Italian Lunch_08

This is our perfect lunch for a lazy Sunday. Simple but high quality products, a little bit of sunshine and a nice conversation. A couple of weeks ago I visited my family in Italy and I brought home some excelent local products. Among them, this fantastic Sopressa vicentina. Last Sunday we decided to eat a little bit… with some Parmigiano cheese and roasted pepper buschette. A really easy Italian lunch than could be perfect for an unexpected dinner with friends this Summer.

Easy Italian Lunch_06If you haven’t tried this speciality from Vicenza, you should look for it and give it a try. It’s lighter than Salami, with a softer consistency. It’s made of the best pork cuts and it’s seasoned with salt and pepper. The result is surprisingly delicate.
