7 Foods That Are Universally Shunned by Italians

My Italian friends came up with "Italian" foods they wouldn't eat. What do you think of their list?

1. It’s quick, it’s easy, but it’s just not our thing.

2. Pretty much anything from this chain restaurant.

3. Our bread doesn’t come out of cans.

4. And our tomato sauce doesn’t come from branded jars.

5. Two Buck Chuck? Eh, no thanks.

6. If we have frozen lasagna, it’s because Nonna made too much for Sunday supper.

7. If it can’t be baked in a conventional oven, then we’re probably not eating it.
