Warning! You'll want to host a party every night after making these four simple party appetizers. Not only are they quick and easy, but they won't take up precious oven space. These small bites will impress guests and without spoiling their appetite for the main course. Buon Appetito!
1. Sweet Goat Cheese Truffle Bites
These sophisticated snacks are sweet and savory, making it the perfect beginning to any Italian meal. Meyer lemons are sweeter, less acidic and more aromatic than regular lemons. They are best and in season October - May, but you can always substitute with regular lemon zest if Meyer lemons are unavailable.

2. Marinated Mozzarella Antipasto
If you can’t find chili pesto, or prefer less spice, feel free to use any tomato pesto (add a pinch of red pepper chili flakes for heat.) This versatile dish would work with any pesto of your choice. The best part is, it can be made ahead of time and kept in the refrigerator to marinate, remember to remove it 20 minutes before serving. Give it a gentle toss with a wooden spoon to loosen the pesto and oil. Transfer to a serving bowl and garnish with fresh chiffonade (thinly sliced) basil sprinkled on top.

3. Prosciutto Wrapped Melon
This traditional Italian appetizer features Tuscan cantaloupes, but any melon will work. Tuscan melons originated in Italy and are extra sweet compared to regular cantaloupes. Select melons that are heavy for their size with a sweet, fruity fragrance and thick well-raised netting on the skin. Prosciutto wrapped melon has the perfect ratio of salty and sweet flavors to tempt your taste buds.

4. Ravioli Fritti
Make extra batches, because these will be the hit of the party! Keep extras in a warm oven until ready for serving. Serve with your favorite assortment of Italian marinara, pesto or dipping sauces. Safety Tip: Allow the ravioli to defrost before battering and frying (ice crystals can cause an explosion when touching hot oil).
