Italian meals

In Italy, people generally eat three meals a day: breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Italian people like a sweet breakfast, for example, biscuits, cake or bread with jam. We drink a cup of milky coffee, a cappuccino or a tea. For breakfast in my family, my daughter has a cup of milk with cornflakes, my husband has a little cup of coffee with milk and biscuits and I have a big cup of tea with milk or lemon and some cake like pasticciotto, a typical sweet breakfast food in my region.

Italian people really enjoy having lunch. We like to eat pasta like tagliatelle or lasagne with tomato sauce, vegetables or a special sauce called ragù. In Puglia, a typical type of pasta is orecchiette. We can also eat meat with salad or fish with vegetables. After lunch, we like to drink a cup of espresso to signal the end of the meal.

For dinner in my family, we like to eat pizza, cheese, legume or vegetable soup or sandwiches. At the end of lunch or dinner, we often eat fruit for dessert. In my family, we usually eat just one course for each meal, but a lot of Italian people eat two or three courses at each meal.
