Dr. C. says I could find my way here blindfolded--I think he's right!
There are lots of little stores in Little Italy, but for high quality imported Italian products none compare to Mona. The men/women who work here are the best! I arrived at lunch time, it was so crowded and I couldn't get any good shots of the interior, but this is what I brought home.
Left to right: Salami di Parma, whole milk mozzarella, Prosciutto di Parma, Italian pine nuts (don't buy the Chinese imports ---read that as Costco---they are awful!) imported Mortadella, fresh Pecorino,Mona Lisa regular sausage--second row, Caffe Calabria Italian Roast (mmm, delish) Cento San Marzano tomatoes, Italian tuna packed in olive oil and a loaf of Bread and Cie French Bread.
I've got our Take 5 ingredients somewhere in this post, and will have the recipe and photos here tomorrow. Until then, enjoy your day!
