Pesto with Almonds

pesto-main-pic

Gotta love Pesto with Almonds.  I believe it’s traditionally made with Pine Nuts but even Walnuts are often substituted.  So it doesn’t really matter what you use, just pick your favorite and follow this recipe to a T because it is fantastic.  Just know that I cut this recipe in half when I filmed it in the video.

Also, if you’re looking for something meaty to compliment this recipe, be sure to check out my Italian Sausage and my Italian Breaded Pork Chops!

Pesto with Almonds Ingredients:

3 cups Basil Leaves, freshly packed
1/2 cup Almonds
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
3 Garlic Cloves
1/2 tsp Salt
1/4 tsp Black Pepper, ground
1/2 cup Olive oil
1 tsp Lemon Juice, (optional)

Stromboli Recipe – How to make Stromboli Supreme

Stromboli Supreme main pic

My Stromboli is Huge!

I’m using enough pizza dough for one 14″ Pizza to make this Stromboli. It’s approximately 2 ft long so it makes it real easy to cut off a slice, just like you would a sub sandwich, to serve to family and friends.  Make yours however you want but I highly recommend making it this way.  The Stromboli is both fun to make and equally impressive when it’s served.

Stromboli

This Stromboli recipe follows the idea of a Supreme Pizza with fresh veggies and Italian meats but you can put whatever you want in it.  And that’s the best part.  I love vegetarian Stromboli’s because they have so much flavor.  Broccoli and Cheese Stromboli… Spinach, Onion and Mushroom Stromboli (Chicken)… Are you starting to see where I’m going with this?  The possibilities are endless!

You may need a good Marinara or Pizza Sauce for dipping so I’ll include a link for that down below.  You will also find a link for pizza dough in the ingredients if you need a recipe for that too.  Both recipes are restaurant quality and worthy of hanging on to or even sharing with friends and family.  Just be sure to tell them where you got it!
