Snow up to here…

January 19, 2018

temps down to there. Makes the idea of slaving over a hot stove downright inviting. So, for this New Year a new entry in the growing arsenal of Meatless Monday recipes. Farro Porcini Risotto with Parsley Walnut Pesto. Rich, hearty, aromatic and best of all, on the table in about 30 minutes. This just moved to the top of my rotation.

I added a little shortcut to this already simple recipe from Martha Stewart, https://www.marthastewart.com/312975/farro-and-porcini-risotto, by using 1/2 jar of  Trader Joe’s Pesto Alla Genovese with the parsley and toasted walnuts and an additional splash of olive oil. The weekend’s here, why wait till Monday.

Pizza Night

October 6, 2017

In less time than it takes to run out and pick one up, you can bake a pizza and have it on the table. A few ingredients gathered up beforehand have you at the ready when your new Fall schedule has you slammed. Pre-made pizza dough, jarred pesto, a red onion and some cheese is all you need for my favorite Pesto Pizza. While the oven is coming to temperature at 500 degrees simply pat out your dough into a round or rectangle, start with some provolone, then an even layer of Pesto, a scattering of sliced red onion and then finally some mozzarella. Ten to twelve minutes in the oven and you’re done.
