Pasta Rustica with Smoked Mozzarella

If you follow my Facebook page, you may have seen that my recipe for Wild Mushroom Truffled Pizza Topped with a Runny Egg won a recipe contest hosted by Cooking Planit and sponsored by Formaggio Cheese! Not only is my recipe now available through Cooking Planit, but I also won some snazzy prizes, including an amazing assortment of Formaggio products. My fridge is now happily filled with cheese, so I will be posting a few cheesy recipes over the coming weeks. One of the first products I noticed in the basket was Smoked Mozzarella. I’ve had smoked mozzarella in the past and found the flavor to be a bit… overwhelming… so I was interested to see if I could get it to work well in a recipe instead of becoming the only flavor you can taste. But Formaggio’s smoked mozzarella was a pleasant surprise! The smoky flavor is present without being overpowering and works to enhance other flavors instead of covering them up.

Peach-Glazed Chicken with Peach-Studded Bulgur

My boyfriend loves peaches so I am always keeping an eye out for any recipe that incorporates peaches into it. This recipe from Cooking Light not only included peaches two ways, but it also used a wheat product I’ve never used before: bulgur.     Bulgur is a fast cooking whole grain that’s been parboiled, dried, and cracked. One cup of bulgur is only 150 calories and includes 8 grams of fiber and almost 6 grams of protein. Sounds like a good addition to any meal!       Ingredients: 1 1/3 cups water 3/4 cup uncooked bulgur 2 tablespoons canola oil, divided 2 1/2 tablespoons white wine vinegar, divided 2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme 1 teaspoon grated peeled fresh ginger 2 cups chopped peaches 1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, divided 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided 1 ounce goat cheese, crumbled (about 1/4 cup) 4 (6-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves 1/2 cup unsalted chicken stock 1/4 cup peach preserves 2 teaspoons whole-grain mustard

Salmon, avocado, and bacon… what’s not to love? This recipe is perfect for nights that you just need to whip something up quickly with little effort. Although I will warn you, it’s not exactly an easy meal to eat. It can get quite messy because it is open-faced!   Ingredients: 4 (1-ounce) slices diagonally cut ciabatta or rustic Italian bread 4 center-cut bacon slices 4 (4-ounce) sustainable salmon fillets, skinned (about 3/4 inch thick) 1/4 cup canola mayonnaise 2 tablespoons water 1 tablespoon minced fresh chives, divided 1 1/2 teaspoons Dijon mustard 4 Bibb (Boston, butterhead) lettuce leaves 4 (1/2-inch-thick) slices tomato, halved 1/2 peeled ripe avocado, cut into 8 slices 4 lemon wedges
