Week 45 - FOCACCIA

Saskatchewan Menu of the Week – 22 February 2006

Breakfast – Scrambled eggs with pan-fried potatoes.
Lunch – Yogurt with applesauce.
Supper – Spaghetti with Red Pepper Pesto. Focaccia.

Focaccia is an Italian-style bread. I make my own dough, but you can make this with frozen white dough from the grocery store. Spread the dough with your hands onto a greased cookie sheet. Leave it to rise 2-3 times in thickness. Using your finger or the end of a wooden spoon, poke holes into the dough about 2-inches apart. Pour on olive oil so that it fills the holes and completely covers the surface of the dough. Sprinkle on rock salt or chopped black olives (or both, if you like). Bake about 25 minutes in a 350-degree oven.

You’ll find the recipe for Red Pepper Pesto in the archives for December 2005.
