Italian Superbowl food

  • k

My father-in-law just asked me to come up with something he could make for a superbowl party -- it needs to be Italian (not sure why) and cannot be lasagna, sausage or "antipasto."

Any ideas? Thanks!

  1. How about polpetti (meatballs) with fresh marinara sauce which he could put in a crockpot to keep hot with mozzarella on the side and some good crusty rolls.

    Oh! Also, Epicurious has a fantastic Tortellini Soup recipe which could be kept in a crockpot also...just substitute ground beef for the italian sausage.

    1. How about a prosciutto,cheese,roasted pepper rolled bread? Change the filling as to his whim. Not a calzone, but a jelly roled type of bread. It can then be baked and sliced into one inch servings and reheated as neccessary.

      Either homemade pizza or store bought dough.

        Thanks, I sent him this idea (along with the meatballs), I also suggested pesto, chicken and cheese, and goat cheese with balsamic and carmelized onions as well.

          Sounds like Stromboli to me.
