Make Sweet Easter Last
Part 2 of 2: Your Pasquetta Picnic: Plan a delicious day for your family and friends
If you'd like to make your own Pasquetta tradition, invite some friends, grab a blanket, and head for the great outdoors. Here, a couple of menus that could work in Italy or wherever you call home:
Menu 1: Packed and Perfect
Main Course: Already cooked omelets made with eggs, cheese, onion, and one or two of your favorite fillers (mushrooms and bell peppers are delightful additions)
Side Dish: Simple Salad - chopped lettuce and carrots with olive oil, balsamic vinegar and some sea salt
Dessert: If you can't get gelato at a nearby shop or stand, then bring pastiera with you. This wheat pie is the traditional Easter dessert of Neapolitans everywhere.
Menu 2: Grilled and Great
Main Course: An assortment of grilled meats that you cook when you arrive at your destination and set up your portable grill
Side Dishes: Grilled zucchini and artichokes. My brother is famous for his 2-inch strips of zucchini that are seasoned with olive oil, lemon, and sea salt before grilling for just a minute or two on a medium flame. There are numerous recipes available online and in cookbooks for making a mean grilled artichoke. Just be sure not to let them get too chewy by overcooking.
Dessert: Fruit - some of it on the grill - would be a nice way to finish this meal. Pineapple is especially tasty grilled. But fresh, raw cantaloupe would be refreshing, and easy to carry, as well.
