The weather was beautiful for the 39th Houston Italian Festival, a celebration of the cuisine and culture of Italy. Festival-goers enjoyed pasta with meatballs, meatball sandwiches, sausage (sandwiches or on a stick), baked artichoke hearts, eggplant parmesan, lasagna, chicken marsala and pizza. Desserts included cannoli, Italian cookies, sfingi, Italian ice and gelato. Come back next year when this iconic festival celebrates 40 years in Houston.
