In her honor, I am making her Pan-Roasted Chicken with Rosemary, Garlic, and White Wine tonight. One of my favourite - and simplest recipe from Marcella. What is yours?

I've been roasting her Lemon Chicken for decades now. It is stupid easy, and always SO moist without basting. For me, the beauty of her recipes has always been the simplicity. And the impeccable instructions.

It's her basics that are the best. Whenever I'm thinking that my no-recipe pesto isn't so great, I go back to The Classic Italian Cookbook to be reminded of proportions.
And yes, June! I was thinking of making the roast chicken with lemon (from More Classic Italian Cooking) tonight.

Her two "Classic" books were among the first cookbooks I ever bought. I've used them regularly since. We made her sensational "Dolce Torinese" for the big dinner party we had to honor my mother shortly after she died. It's one of the best dessert recipes, ever. ;o)
Where can I find the recipe for her Dolce Torinese? Thx
I have some fresh shell beans. I love the dressing she makes for her bean salad: boiled egg yolk, sage, anchovy, a little onion. What else? I'll have to take a look.
Marcella I will always be seriously beholden to you. Thank You. You are so in my heart.
What do you think is her best book? I think I have some old copies in storage, but I'd like to buy a new one.
I still can't get enough of her Tomato sauce with Onion & butter..
Her recipe for pork chops with fennel seed braised in red wine and marsala is wonderful. I've made it regularly for many years and never get tired of it. Hmm... maybe it's tonight's dinner!
Broccoli and Potato soup, Simplest Leek and Chickpea soup, Pesto with Goat cheese instead of Parmigiano...
Her tomato sauce with butter and onions is what finally got me to make a tomato sauce on my own and give up the store-bought stuff. It's so easy, I now use it any time I need a tomato sauce. I will forever love her for this. So sad to hear she died.

Her homemade pasta dough. Easy, reliable, great taste! Classic Italian Cook Book is best in my view - great simplicity, reliability.
