Sunday Supper

When it comes to summer eats, Italian food – typically associated with heavier meals – is all too often overlooked. Which is crazy, because Italian cuisine is all about light simplicity (with super-fresh ingredients, of course).

Case in point: these two recipes, both the handiwork of talented food blogger Jen (you’ll be obsessed with her site, Tiny Urban Kitchen). The Gnocchi with Summer Roasted Tomatoes takes full advantage of summer’s candy-like tomatoes, and Olive Oil Ice Cream – well, it needs zero justification. Serve them up at next Sunday’s dinner alfrescoThey pair perfectly with a mild breeze.

Our Sunday Supper: Italian Alfresco Boutique opens Sunday, June 2, at 11AM ET.
