It all started Saturday morning with a cup of Santaurio. MMM delicious! I made a nice French press and prepared myself for a day of romping through the city and cooking. That morning I bought some vegetables with my friend Siena. Lots of nice peppers and herbs. I had a few recipes in mind so I later attacked them.
Focaccia with fresh mozzarella and pesto. The focaccia was a fantastic choice--cheese and tomato. I spread the pesto on, stacked the mozzarella and tomato slices. I used fresh basil and seasoned with some pepper.
I popped it in the over for a bit to melt the cheese and make the outside crunchy. It was lovely. Next I'll have to make the focaccia at home!
Also, I made some stuffed peppers. They turned out just OK. I will have to tweak my recipe a bit, it is pretty bland. The colors are great though!
Stuffed yellow and Jalapeño peppers!
I still have so many red and yellow peppers left over and I am trying to put them to good use before they go bad. Any suggestions?
