Old and New

Last night we had one of Keith’s favorites – the shrimp and black bean quesadilla.  He was craving it after having a prepared foods quesadilla while I was away on business.  I’ve blogged it many times – it is easy and delicious.  Tonight we had something new, adapted from a sample we tried in our local grocery store.  It was a pizza featuring Aidell’s caramelized onion meatballs.  I’ve used them before on pizza, with mushrooms and cheese.  This pizza used figs and I think marks the first time I have cooked with figs.  It’s delicious!

Pizza with caramelized onion meatballs and figs

  • 1 prepared pizza crust – we use Boboli
  • olive oil
  • 1 bunch arugula
  • 1/2 cup sliced figs
  • 1 TB butter
  • 2 oz crumbled goat cheese
  • 1/2 package Aidells Caramelized Onion Meatballs, sliced

Preheat oven to 450.  Brush pizza crust with olive oil and top with arugula.  Sauce figs in butter for about 10 minutes.  Top arugula with cooked figs, goat cheese and sliced meatballs.  Bake at 450 for 12 – 15 minutes.  Serve.

I love to cook and love to eat. I work full time and have a family so managing good meals during the week requires organization. I'm hoping to share my weekly menu plans and recipes to make things a little easier for those who want to follow along.
