If you can't get inspired to cook by a trip to Lovera's Italian Market, then be advised there are plenty of good restaurants available both in Krebs and your hometown.
One of the great things about Lovera's is how many of their offerings are ready to eat or ready to eat with minimal effort.
Here are a couple of super simple ideas for how to turn a trip into Lovera's into dinner. Antipasto choices abound throughout the store and what's better with cured meats than cheese?
Sam Lovera likes to cut Caciocavera into cubes and drizzle it with premium olive oil but also says it's a great melting cheese. I did a little Caciocavera fondue with a dollop of spicy giardiniera.
For dinner, I kept it as simple as they do at Pete's Place, Isle of Capri, Roseanna's and GiaComo's in McAlester. Without bothering to uncoil the Lovera's sausage, I dropped it into a cast-iron skillet, rubbed it with olive oil stuck in the oven.
I loved the Sicilian style sausage, which is a little sweeter than the original recipe. Served with a little pasta and sugo, and the magic of Krebs will fully manifest itself upon your palate and within the smiles around the table.
