Time for our weekly whirl through Amish country in search of any and everything newsy to share. A couple of recipes in the news first!
AMISH ITALIAN CASSEROLE: This really piqued my interested because I have discussed the similarities and overlaps of Amish and Italian culinary culture on Amish365 plenty of times. I think I was especially curious because this recipe was featured on a TV station in Idaho. I wondered if somehow the recipe could have had its origins in the small Amish presence out there. But, nope, this particular recipe has its genesis in Ohio and if you watch the video portion of the story, the chef explains that. But you can also skip the video and just get the recipe, click here for this delish-sounding dish.
