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.
