My friend recently got back from Italy, bringing back with her some tasty Italian recipes. So the other day, we made a visit to whole foods, picked up a bunch of fresh, colourful ingredients and made an Italiano feast.
For appies, we put out pesto-stuffed sicilian olives, and 3 different types of cheese (French herbed brie, Italian provolone, and English chesire) with baguette.
For the entree, we made fusili pasta with roasted cherry tomatoes, onions, kalamata olives, oregano, olive oil and feta cheese.
Hard-boiled eggs with balsamic vinegar and green onions.
Salade with mixed greens, peppers, sliced onions, cucumbers, olive oil, balsamic vinegar and salt.
And to keep up the theme, we drank peroni beer and lambrusci red wine.
