If you're tuning into the 2012 Olympics Opening Ceremony, then serve your family and friends a delicious (and effortless) menu, courtesy of Giada De Laurentiis. It's a win-win situation, because you can spend more time catching the amazing spectacles of the show and less time checking the status of whatever's on the stove.
When we spoke to Giada, she revealed that she'll be in London for the Olympics, but she nonetheless shared with us what stylish fare she would make if she were to watch the opening ceremony at home.
Giada's recommendation: start with these three crowd-pleasers, and you'll be guaranteed a short grocery list, minimal prep, and a fun time. Let the games begin!
