Vegetarian Dinner Party Idea: Italian

APPETIZER / L’ANTIPASTO

Broad Bean and Rocket Bruschetta
– Lucas Hollweg
Fava beans and arugula on crusty ciabatta bread is the perfect way to begin an Italian feast. The ingredients are simple but the taste is fresh, healthy and scrumptious.

MAIN MEAL / IL SECONDO
Linguine with Tomatoes and Capers
– Andy Harris (image by Sam Stowell)
I made this a few weeks ago without the parmesan and it was lovely. So easy to make and even easier to devour! I loved the use of capers and lemon zest.

DESSERT / IL DOLCE
