Italy – Lasagne Bolognese With Bechamel Sauce

/
Lasagna is one of Italy's finest cuisines ever made. It has a place in the heart of the Italian cuisine. Lasagna was first made in the city of Naples where this dish became popular in no time. The word Lasagna was embraced from the Greek dish "Lasanum" which meant "cooking pot" because it was made in it. As my opinion goes I will always recommend everyone to try it because it is also one of my favorite foods to eat. It may not be the healthiest but it is tasty.

Italy – Risotto

/
Risotto is an Italian classis dish which is basically rice cooked in broth until it reaches a creamy state. Risotto with all its simple and less ingredients looks like a piece of cake but in reality it is one of the most difficult dishes to get right. Many people have tried to get it right the first time but only a few have succeeded. That is why it is named "DEATH DISH". I highly recommend it to everyone who visits Italy, try it there where it was created because that original taste cannot be replicated anywhere else.
