This is one of the best shrimp dishes I've ever had. It was inspired by a similar dish I had at Bobby Flay's restaurant Bolo a while back. This is fantastic with a good crusty Italian bread to spread the garlic on and soak up the sauce, but you might also try it served over pasta, maybe with a splash of lemon juice.
This IS AMAZING! My own personal recipe:) The massive amounts of veggies stay moist and absorb every ounce of garlic pesto flavor, the crust is crisp...the pizza is quick, easy, satisfying, flavorful and healthy! Piled high with veggies and other good stuff, this puppy will satisfy even the most skeptical pizza gourmet. Try adding garlic grilled chicken for a carnivorous twist. ROWR!
I adopted this recipe and have not yet tried it. I also have a fear of yeast, but believe that Mean Chef's original pizza dough would work well for this recipe (recipe #62554). The original chef recommended another crust that was supposed to be so good your head would spin, but I trust Mean Chef's recipe. Original intro comments are: "This is a great combination. Try it! The tomato mixture is enough for two 12 inch pizzas. Adjust accordingly depending on how many pizzas you are interested in making."
This Mediterranean-style pizza is a wonderful change to everyday pizza. It's a great summertime dish to make when basil and tomatoes are in season. Althought you can use prepared pesto, I normally make my own which has quite a hint of lemon in it. Do not substitute dried basil - it just won't work. This would also make a great appetizer if sliced in very thin wedges.
This dish is the ultimate comfort food for me. And the sauce is a little on the lighter side because you may choose to use very little butter or heavy cream. I use skim milk, and find that I don't miss the cream at all. Feel free to experiment with different vegetables layered in this as well. Asparagus and/or artichoke hearts make nice substitutions. For the ravioli, try and find a "family size" package (24-28 oz), or you may use two smaller packages.
I've got this recipe of my sister-in-law. I just love the combination of pasta, spinach cheese and tomatoes. Served with crusty bread and a fresh salad (plus a few bottles of red wine), it's perfect if you have a few friends round for dinner and don't want anything too formal!
