Those delicious little morsels spread out on the dining room table just waiting to be enjoyed by all. The first chapter in the book of food. The first act in the theater of fine Italian dinners. The first note played in the concerto of.....Oh, well, you get the picture. I'm getting a little carried away just thinking about preparing these wonderful appetizer recipes.

These traditional Italian Appetizer Recipes are quick and easy to make and uncompromising in taste. I always spread out the apps around three hours before dinner, this way it gives the family a little time for nap between courses.

Make around ten of them and you could skip dinner completely and just go straight for the nap. At least that seems to work for my family.
