My Favourite Shortcut
Anything that simplifies my life is a beautiful thing as far as I'm concerned. I've been using Dalla Terra products for years. I used to make antipastos and roasted peppers from scratch but once I discovered these I figured why bother! Unless I'm really in the mood to be all cheffy. Dalla Terra makes their products with absolutely nothing I wouldn't put in them if I was making it myself. That's right no preservatives, no unnecessary sugar or hydrogenated fats, just real food. Finally a commercially prepared food I will happily use as a shortcut!
I use these in everything from soups, sauces and even in appetizers. The Mediterranean Antipasto is my favourite. It has a slightly smokey taste that adds such richness and depth to anything you put it in. I highly recommend you give them a try, it's a quick and heathy way to get more veggies into your diet! They can be found in most produce and specialty stores and are very reasonably priced.
