Many people living in America have an Italian Heritage, and are proud of their families Italian cooking. Italian meals are usually loaded with carbohydrates, but with a balance of protein and acidity, come together as some of the best cuisine in southern Europe. Pasta has been around for ages, and as such carries a lot of character. For example, Italian pasta is often cooked with sausages rather than with meatballs.
Individuals who have been to Italy, know that there is no comparison between traditional Italian Pizza and American style pizza. The Italians incorporate more spice and acidity into their pizzas than the Americans do, and one will also find that the Italian Pizzas are far less greasy and have a rustic taste.
