This is one of my mom’s favorite desserts. And trust me, there is no need to make cake from scratch. Use a box cake and add to it!
If you’re making this for a group on a nice warm day, you’ll definitely need more than one recipe!
I made this for a party once and it was the first appetizer gone! Serve with toasted sliced baguettes, tortilla chips, or crackers.
This is the perfect side dish to go with my Steak Milanese.
I always serve my Garlic Linguine alongside this dish.
To give it more flavor, you could use a balsamic vinaigrette instead of plain olive oil. Delicious either way!
If you like your food spicy, add Sriracha to taste at the end. I like a lot. You can also substitute ground turkey for the ground beef.
The key to the yumminess is the sun-dried tomato pesto, or in my case I used sun-dried tomato bruschetta in a jar, because that’s what I had. You should be able to find it in the Italian aisle at the grocery store. Also, I served this over linguine.
I serve this with crackers, and also toasted sliced baguette that I rub with a cut clove of garlic right after I took it out of the oven.
If you don’t have herbes de Provence, just use a mixture whatever herbs you have in your pantry…parsley, thyme, etc.
