Most of us think about pasta when we hear Italian cuisine. Yet, this culture has so much more to offer in terms of food deliciousness and this wonderful frittata recipe is here to prove so!

One of the iconic dishes of Ligurian cuisine, just as typical of the region as pesto, the chickpea flatbread known as la farina genovese deserves to be better known. It has a wonderful, mildly nutty flavor that marries well with just about anything you want to serve it with, but it is perfectly delicious on its own, as an antipasto or snack. And it is really easy and quick to make.

And once you’ve mastered the basic recipe, you can dress it up in myriad ways. What’s not to like?
