Italian Lunch


Focaccia, Italian flat bread. It's a very popular lunch item in our kitchen. I normally make it more like pizza -- with a lot of toppings. This one is with fresh Mozzarella cheese, oven roasted fresh Roma tomatoes and fresh basil.

This is a side dish I often make for Italian lunch served with Pizza or Pasta dishes.
Fresh small mozzarella balls (Ciliegine), blanched mushrooms and roasted red bell peppers dressed with extra-virgin olive oil, lemon juice and a little balsamic vinegar. Some people like this as a topping on their garden green salad.
