Alex's Day Off

Hosted by Alex Guarnaschelli

Family Comfort Dishes

Alex digs back into her roots and brings to life some of her family's favorite comfort dishes. She takes a simple pork meatball and transforms it into "a crispy on the outside, juicy on the inside" masterpiece. She slathers it with her mom's signature marinara sauce. It's the perfect tomato sauce with hints of basil, carrot, and red pepper flakes. For a side, Alex stuffs an artichoke with all of her favorite flavors of Italian cooking - fennel, bread crumbs, cheese, and garlic. And for dessert, a chocolate crostada filled with an oozy dark chocolate center. (Episode: GE0203)
