This month’s Autumn Italian menu is a make-ahead meal with the flavors of fall. An Antipasto Salad is tossed with Lemon-White Balsamic Vinaigrette that is served with thin baguette rounds spread with buttery Tuna-Caper Spread. Autumn lasagna is a rich dish which takes on the fall colors with a layer of winter squash. Cool Coffee-Toffee Tortoni are a twist on one of Italy’s well-known frozen desserts.
Make the Tuna-Caper Spread, vinaigrette, lasagna and tortoni the day before your party and your work as host or hostess will be about as no-fuss as it gets.
