Roast Turkey Panini with Pesto, Roasted Red Peppers and Fontina

December 11, 2011 by andrea | 2 Comments | Filed in Quick Cooking, Recipes, Sandwich, Thanksgiving, Turkey

This delicious sandwich is a great way to use up leftover roast turkey or chicken. I loved the melty fontina cheese, the slightly sweet roasted red peppers, and the pop of  fresh flavor from the pesto. This sandwich is worth roasting a turkey (or chicken) for! If you can’t find fontina, substitute another mild cheese […]

I got together with a group of girlfriends from my bible study on Friday to organize a friend’s garage. The friend we were helping is a mom of two young boys and her husband has been in the hospital for several months awaiting a heart transplant. Needless to say, it’s been a difficult season for this family, so a chilly, overcast November day was […]

Basil-Lemon Pesto

There’s nothing like freshly made pesto! This particular recipe fills your whole kitchen with the wonderful fragrance of basil, garlic, lemon and parsley…Yumm! The pesto only takes a few minutes to make and freezes well (always a bonus!). I’ve tried this pesto tossed with hot pasta and with grilled chicken…both are excellent! It would also be great in pasta […]

I’m always on the lookout for new soups, especially recipes like this one that feature vegetables. This quick and easy Italian-inspired soup calls for store-bought cheese tortellini (or your favorite flavor) and other ingredients that can be kept on hand. I followed the recipe except for sauteing some diced onion along with the carrots and celery. I also […]

Pesto

January 12, 2010 by andrea | Comments Off on Pesto | Filed in Italian, Quick Cooking, Recipes, Sauce

The first time I tasted pesto was in a small restaurant in San Francisco called Restaurante Parma. I was in my late teens-early twenties and on a vacation with my family. Always being the adventurous eater, I ordered the pesto pasta even though I didn’t really know what it was. I’d never tasted anything like it before; there was […]

Toasted Turkey Subs with Smoked Mozzarella

June 29, 2009 by andrea | 2 Comments | Filed in Quick Cooking, Recipes, Sandwich, Turkey

Here’s a hearty sandwich that is quick, easy and way more exciting than your typical ol’ turkey sandwich: pesto slathered on a sandwich roll layered with turkey, a slightly spicy tomato sauce and smoked cheese. Mmmm! It’s amazing how a few extra ingredients really jazzes things up! The store I went to today didn’t have smoked mozzarella so I bought […]
