1. Pasta with Pesto

2. Vegetable Cakes (Zucchini)
I made the above meal the other evening. Zucchini cakes made almost like you would crab cakes from Relish magazine recipe I mom shared. Garlic lemon with mayonnaise sauce. I also served broccoli and cauliflower with Bechamel sauce in a baked potato along with artichoke and garlic vinaigrette. Although my husband and I loved the all veggie meal, my son was very disappointed there was no meat in his food.
3. Fr. Leo's Eggplant Caponata
Fr. Leo of Food for the Soul has the most delicious Eggplant Caponata recipe. I serve it with white rice like Father suggests.
My husband put his favorite toppings on this one. Black olives and green peppers. My son and I like plain old cheese pizza. I finally found a pizza dough recipe I like a lot. It was in the Mary Ann Esposito's cookbook Nella Cucina. This dough would probably make good zeppoles too.
