Why You May Not Find Garlic Bread In Italy

As delicious as authentic Neapolitan pizza or Roman pasta carbonara are, the wide world of Italian-American fusion cuisine satisfies in its own right, offering a bevy of classic, widely-adored dishes including chicken parmesan, shrimp scampi and penne with vodka sauce. In many cases, these dishes do have roots in Italy, but were adapted to local ingredients by a wave of Italian immigrants to the United States, which reached its peak in the early 1900s (via HuffPost). Thanks to the resourceful souls who attempted to recreate the tastes of their homelands using unfamiliar ingredients, we can regularly tuck into the traditionally red sauce-heavy, garlic-forward plates that may not be original to Italy, but are oh-so-comforting.
