In Italy eggs are not a morning food. We usually have eggs for lunch or dinner or in a sandwich for a snack. Some of the treats I am sharing with you are a selection of my favorite “mom is away” food. Whenever Mom would go out for dinner or on a trip, we would feast on these simple and delicious dishes.
