...For lack of a better name, I'm gonna call these babies "Global Integration Quesadillas". Stuffed with Angus Polska Kielbasa sausage, onions, peppers, mushrooms; seasoned with Italian herbs and ground cumin for a middle eastern twist; and held together with melted pepper jack cheese. Addictive stuff, I tell you....
Courtsey of Foodnetwork definition is: Minestrone is a thick soup of italian origin made with vegetables often with the addition of Pasta or Rice. I decided to use Macoroni Pasta and added up a notch to add half head of Artisan Lettuce and to my bowl a scrambled egg - and made it a lunch.
This is a British classic and I adapted Jamie Oliverâs Shepherd Pie recipe. Well he wouldn't believe the number of changes I made to his recipe to suit my Indian palate. The âYou Will Needâ list may look endless but trust me this is the easiest pie of all. I have just thrown in all my favourite veggies and chicken in the pie and added a little more spice to suite my palate. Like many first timers, I had my doubts on this recipe too that it may turn out too bland for my Indian taste buds. But the mixed veggies were perfect and the mashed potato was unbelievably soft and creamy when it came out of the oven. This was an instant hit at out dinner table. So Get creative, throw in your favourite veggies and meat and I promise you will love it just like we did.
As with many of Italy's greatest dishes, there is never one true recipe, ask five different Tuscans how to make a good Crostini and you will get five different answers and each of the Tuscans will probably tell you the other four are wrong, but this is the way with food throughout Italy. Some people will toast the crostini on a griddle, some in the oven and some will just use stale bread, others will use Pane Toascana (the regions famous salt-less bread) others will use sourdough or maybe even Ciabatta. Some add capers, some add peppers, some add onions the variations are truly endless, but the one thing they all have in common is they all use the finest ingredients available, probably in walking distance of their own front door.
