Hot Italian Dish: A Cookbook by Victoria Gotti
Given my fondness for Victoria Gotti, it is no surprise to learn that her cookbook is excellent. Very precise in her descriptions, her recipes are truly mouth-watering. Some flavorful recipes are Tricolor Salad with Goat Cheese and Raspberry Balsamic Vinaigrette, Tuscan Vegetable and Bread Soup, Stuffed Artichokes and Rigatoni in Spicy Cauliflower Sauce. If you like cooking like I do, buy this book, it is well worth.
This works great as a dip - I really like it with bagel chips (for when I don't want to toast bread (lazy, I know). Obviously it works really well as a traditional bruschetta topping. I like it with a little salt.
The addition of artichoke and mushroom to the tradition mix of tomato, olive oil and herbs make this bruschetta topping really delicious. On top of a crusty bread with just a dusting of sea salt makes a great appetizer.
