What was Italian food like before they got the tomato?

Probably still delicious, knowing the Italians. Only the French chefs are better.

There are many Italian dishes without tomatoes.

Tomatoes have always been around.

Lots of olive oil.
Lots of Italian dishes still rely on olive oil to the exclusion of tomatoes
and those will give you a good idea of what it was like.
Example: ever had spaghetti with butter, salt, pepper and Parmesan? Really good.
I'd expect it would be nearly as good with olive oil instead of butter.

Delicious. Alfredo sauce has no tomaters.

It would've been very bland if they didn't have their mozzarella cheese and basil.

No tomato sauce on your pizza. It was sad.

Antipasti all the time before they stole pasta from the east
