The Primanti Brothers opened their restaurant in Pittsburgh in the 1920s. Their idea was to create an eating place that was simple but offered tasty food. It is no wonder that the Primanti Sandwich was the result -- it's a whole meal in each bite. Ham, french fries, tomato, provolone cheese, and coleslaw are stuffed between two slices of Italian bread and served on wax paper. You can't get it any simpler than that.
Having purchased large head-on shrimp, I wanted to do something other than steam them. I decided to cook them in a broth to take advantage of the extra flavor the heads would lend. My boyfriend loved the broth so much that he practically drank it. We put it over bowls of rice to accompany the shrimp, wishing I had a loaf of garlic bread to dip in it. I used red onion because I had it on hand, but any combination of onion, garlic and/or shallot would be delicious! I think I will saute diced celery with the onion mixture next time and add chopped parsley or cilantro at the end for garnish. Very simple, tasty and ready in minutes!
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!
This is a very flavorful, and hearty soup. It is great comfort food for those really cold nights. I made this for a Lent Soup/Salad dinner - literally making it up as I went a long. It was a HUGE success and everyone wanted to know exactly what I threw into the pot.
I make these for DH and friends for Football Sunday's. They love them. They are very easy to make and everybody can help themselves and add their own condiments. Serve with chips and plenty of cold beer! They are sure to disappear! I leave the green peppers out since I hate them! This is a great recipe to take to a potluck and can easily be doubled.
