If you’re hankering for great Italian food this summer, ditch the pasta and get the grill going.

Two new cookbooks aim to get you grilling Italian-style.

First is Mario Batali’s lush “Italian Grill,” which opens with some basic how-to material, including a helpful primer on common grill-friendly Italian ingredients.

Of course the real appeal is the recipes, such as fresh robiola cheese grilled in thinly sliced mortadella (smoked Italian sausage) or the marinated calamari with chickpeas, olive pesto and oranges.

Batali acknowledges the recipes aren’t entirely authentic, but with these sorts of flavors, who cares?

Also there is Elizabeth Karmel and Bob Blumer’s “Pizza on the Grill,” a collection of more than 50 inspired takes (including the tantalizing Maine Event Lobster and Corn Pizza) on producing great pies on the grill.

The Marana capital improvements improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

The town of Marana is looking at ways to do capital improvements to the oldest neighborhoods in Marana. Over the next few months the town will survey older neighborhoods and see what amenities they need and form a plan to make sure neighborhoods have paved roads, sidewalks, adequate drainage, lighting and even pocket parks. “We want to make sure that every neighborhood has a base standard for infrastructure,” said Marana Town Manager Gilbert Davidson. The improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

How do you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women?

During the Jan. 20 town council meeting, a vote was unanimously passed to look into the feasibility of a “Memorial Public Art Project,” at the request of Oro Valley resident Dick Eggerding to potentially be placed somewhere in the town to honor military veterans and first responders. Though no concrete plans were then ready to act on, there was a show of overwhelming support for such project from residents and staff alike during the council meeting. In an effort to poll to community at-large, The Explorer would like to know how you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women.
