David Rocco takes a break as food bloggers have at it

No Roman holiday in the cards for your summer? How about a quick weekend staycation with three tribute recipes that are about as irresistible as Mr. Rocco himself…

If you’ve never had Spaghetti All’Ubriaco — or drunken spaghetti — the time is now. Full-bodied red wine, pasta, garlic — an entire Italian love affair in a bowl.  Give it a twirl.

Next up is a simple, sensational nod to panzanella.  The Italian bread salad is flipped in favor of a visit to North Africa with a cous cous swap out.  The photo on Nooschi – A Food Diary felt like a pure bite of summer.  Better yet, it’s a no-cook recipe that should charm the vegetarians in your life.

Food porn aside, we’re partial to the simplicity of his walnuts, cheese and honey snack.  Three natural ingredients that can be assembled in about a minute flat.  Date night, anyone?
