Adapted from a recipe by Australian chef Huey (Iain Hewitson) who hosts a popular TV cooking show twice daily. Posted for the 2005 Zaar World Tour. UPDATE: In her review, BarbryT commented that it is not specified where the fresh basil is used. You could add it on top of the dish with the parmesan, although when I've made this I've sprinkled it on top just before serving. If you're undecided, perhaps do half and half, then you'll know which you prefer a second time.
Tomato soup is only as good as the tomatoes that are used to make it, so it is no wonder that this soup is synonymous with the summer months, when the reddest, juiciest, most flavorful specimens are in the market. Also best in this season are the pungent, leafy green herbs that the French call 'fines herbes': parsley, chervil, chives, basil, and tarragon. From the cookbook "Savoring Provence" and posted for ZWT5.
Do you like pineapple on your pizza? How about creamy spinach and artichoke dip? This recipe includes both, and the best part is, it comes together so easily. It's perfect for dinner after a busy day at work, or after a busy day hittin' the waves at the beach. If you can't wait until dinner time, it's quick enough that you could even enjoy it for lunch or as an afternoon snack. Although it is listed for a single pita pizza, it can easily be adjusted/multiplied so everyone in your family can have their own.
This recipe is made at a church camp I attended for a scrap weekend. The cook graciously gave me her recipe. It is the best dip ever for sweet potato fries (or yam fries), hey, I think it would be great on a burger also! It is so easy, and fast with only a few ingredients.
I had seen Ina Garten prepare this sandwich on one of her Barefoot Contessa episodes. It looked to die for, and when I finally had time to try it, my suspicions were confirmed. It is so flavorful and just down right yummy. She also prepared a Fresh Pea soup to pair with it, I can't wait to try that, too.
