Just looked up Mark Bittman for a link and found he did a photo show on my favorite street market. Sob. But, he doesn't feature italian solely, has pretty wide ranging interests.
Anyway, here's the Blog...
look to the right, about half way down the page, and he'll have many recipes and different ways to look them up.
I like his approach to cooking, which is simple with good ingredients.
It's tricky cooking for one, and doing it cheaply. I too don't want to eat the same thing all week. And I often hate to make the effort for one little dish. My freezer part of the fridge gets a workout now. But you may prefer the one dish business.
