Have An Italian-American Night At Home

Treat yourself to an Italian American-themed night with some pasta and a classic mob film. First, start out with some Spinach and Ricotta Dumplings (Ravioli Nudi) from Saveur. "Ravioli nudi" are referred to as being "naked" because they are dumplings made of filling with no dough on the outside. Instead, it's almost like larger spinach and ricotta gnocchi. No need for sauce on top—just some melted butter and freshly shaved cheese provide the perfect finish.
Then follow up your meal with Martin Scorsese's hit film Goodfellas. Growing up in Brooklyn, a young boy gets tied up with the neighborhood gangsters. He gets taken under the wing of the Mafia and works through the ranks to live a life of money and luxury. It's a classic gangster film that does a great job at showing the glamorous and brutally violent side of the Italian mob.
