As a culinary student who dreamed of going to Japan, this recipe is a nod to ‘quick’ food. Although having a lot of components, this dish comes together in one bowl to create a flavor harmony of taste, texture, and appearance. This recipe was the first dish I was proud to feed my family.
My aunt was half Italian and taught me a lot in the kitchen, so I created this recipe in her honor. These zesty sausage and cheese stuffed shells with a crispy coating are perfect for serving on game day, at casual get togethers or holiday parties.
A light flavored dish full of umami; but with a a little sour & spicy aroma from Yuzukosho. The sweetness from the cherry tomatos balances out the heat and flavor. This recipe is an arrangement from my grandma’s favorite dish, yuzukosho chicken.
Just like my Nonna made it, but completely dairy-free! A healthier, harmless way to enjoy this Italian Classic with a delicious almond based ricotta filling and homemade Chicago-style sweet basil gravy. Nobody will know it’s vegan.. that’s the best part!
