Better known by the Chef Boyardee brand, the Boiardi name has reached tables across America for more than 70 years. But there’s more to the Boiardi family than canned pasta in tomato sauce.
From a very young age, Anna Boiardi spent countless hours helping her mother and grandmother, kneading and folding and listening to stories as rich as the tortellini she and her mother would work to perfection. Now, for the first time, Boiardi brings us the authentic recipes that inspired the family brand, including Ravioli with Ricotta and Squash Filling, Cotechino with Lentils, and Baked Fennel with Butter and Parmesan.
