I never ever require a reason to go to our regional French bakeshop. I may go there to get something for a meal, however I will not leave without a tarte tatin or eclair. The bakeshop is owned and run by a French household, so the food and the accents truly make you seem like you’re in Paris and notWisconsin (Oh, how I want I remained in Paris and not Wisconsin.)
Anyway! In looking for brand-new and various methods to utilize pesto, I wished to do something sandwichy. Yes, it’s a word! Sandwichy! I purchased a crusty loaf of sourdough bread from previously mentioned bakeshop, and after that yellow squash, zucchini, and portabella mushrooms from the supermarket. I had pesto, Parmesan cheese, and an onion on hand. Because roasting is basically my default method of preparing veggies, I believed I ‘d marinade the veggies in a pesto and olive oil mix and after that toss them in the oven till they got all caramelized and tasty. If you choose barbecuing your veggies, that would work too, obviously– I suggest, generally the concept is to prepare the veggies prior to putting them on the sandwich, you understand?
These sandwiches are bound to end up being a weekend staple in our home. Most Saturdays, we visit the farmers market to get fresh veggies and the bakeshop is on the method house. And on Saturdays, we’re normally so hectic, the last thing we wish to do is invest an hour or 2 preparing supper. These sandwiches are simple, fresh, and yummy– does it get any much better than that?
Pesto- marinaded veggies are roasted in the oven and after that grilled on sourdough bread with Parmesan cheese– extremely simple and extremely tasty!
