Saturday brings snow to the South! I do wish it had happened during the school week, but 3day weekend snow is just as lovely! Beau was hysterical; in fact he still is. He's been barking at flakes outside the window off and on all day.
Today's winter weather comfort food recipe:
In a 8×8 baking pan, drizzle enough extra virgin olive oil to coat the bottom. Next, lay down finger-sized slices of homemade or bakery fresh bread. Cover this layer with ingredients you like on a pizza (I used vegan pepperoni, pitted Kalamata olives & artichoke hearts). Grind some pepper over this layer to your liking. I like a lot of pepper! If you want, you can layer some cheese here too, like parmesan or romano. For vegans like me, Toffuti Better than Cream Cheese works well as a substitute for ricotta. Now, use a spoon to break up the contents of a large can of whole stewed tomatoes. Spoon these all over the top of the dish. If you want more cheese, you can put that on now. Lastly, cover with foil & bake at 350° F for about 75 minutes. For the last 15 minutes, remove the foil so the cheese can brown a little. Let it stand until it stops bubbling when removed from oven. Oh, this comes out good and there's no need to bother with boiling noodles in advance.
