Viaggio Veggie - Veggie trip through the most beautiful regions of Bella Italia - by Silvia Censi

Do you really want authentic authentic Italian food? Silvia has made delicious recipes for us, which take you on a veggie trip through the most beautiful regions of Italy.

Lombardy: rivers, lakes, misty plains and cities interspersed with magical mountains. A rich and constantly moving area that is capable of being modern while preserving artistic and cultural heritage. The kitchen reflects its rural origins and reveals the link with agriculture. When we talk about Lombardy, we are talking about rice and of course saffron; two typical products of this region with strong flavors.

We have decided to replace the classic risotto with a simplified version, but no less tasteful. The result: a perfect comfort food that is accompanied by the sweetness of the gorgonzola and spiced sausage; all flavored by fresh marjoram and red onion.
