70 Best Creative Italian-Inspired Recipes - Italian Dinners.jpg

Italians are really all about incredible food, and here at Delish, so are we. While we love Italian pizza and pasta, there's tons more Italian-inspired dinner ideas that'll have you feeling like you have your own Italian nonna on-call to teach you how to make all the classics. These 70 Italian dinner recipes will help you venture outside the Olive Garden and highlight some of the many diverse flavors in Italian cuisine. Our traditional recipes for Sunday sauce, eggplant Parm, and creamy chicken marsala will have you feeling like you're running your own Roman trattoria in no time.

Think outside the pasta box with our favorite homemade Italian classics that will make any weeknight feel like a special occasion. Our dream Italian feast? We love pairing a hearty stew like osso buco with creamy risotto. Add a side of sheet-pan panzanella on the side, and you'll be sure to get more than few chef's kisses. Okay, maybe add a glass of vino or a negroni for good measure too.

There's no coincidence that the "eat" portion of Eat, Pray, Love took place in Rome, and we've got plenty of Italian pasta recipes to prove it. And we're not just talking about spaghetti & meatballs either. There are actually four classic Roman pasta dishes: pasta alla gricia, bucatini all'amatriciana, spaghetti carbonara, and cacio e pepe. No surprise: They're all wildly good. But don't stop there! Try our recipe for homemade pasta dough, homemade cavatelli, and ricotta gnudi for the most authentic pasta night ever.

Cooking Italian food for dinner is one of the better decisions to be made all week long. The absolute best idea? Pair a fun Italian dessert to go with this feast—but hey, it's your party! Mangia!
