Melissa Rubel Jacobson combines roasted almonds, parsley and Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese for a nutty, fresh-tasting pesto. This pasta dish is terrific served warm, but it can also be refrigerated and served as a cold pasta salad.
Another pretty dish. Tomatoes, green pepper and zucchini are sauteed until tender and their flavors have mingled. Rice and water are stirred in and everything is cooked until the liquid is absorbed and the rice is fluffy.
I make this recipe for almost any occasion - it's popular with company and at potluck dinners, and I've passed it around to many friends. My husband and I are growing lots of squash this summer...all for this quiche!
