There’s this super old Italian meat market at the end of our street which we love to go to. It’s family owned and all family members work there. They are great people and they make a lot of Italian dishes in their meat market for you to take home. I tend to have talks with the owner about how I make a particular dish and he tells me how he makes his, it’s great and I love supporting this family owned business. A few weeks back we saw they had their Italian Wedding soup so we decided to give it a try. It was so GOOD that I decided to make my own as well. So here is our version of Italian Wedding soup and it did not disappoint.

Ingredients
  1. 2 cans of Pillsbury Crescent dinner rolls
  2. 1/2 cup well drained roasted red bell peppers
  3. 8 slices of provolone cheese
  4. 1/3 lb deli sliced hot salami
  5. 1/4 lb deli sliced ham
  6. 1/4 lb deli sliced capocollo
  7. 1/2 cup well drained hot pepper rings
Instructions
  1. Heat oven to 375 degrees
  2. Pop the Pillsbury Crescent rolls open and arrange them in a star pattern around a 12-inch pizza pan. The dough will overlap and this is okay.
  3. Spread the roasted red bells peppers towards the center of the ring on the bottom halves of the triangles. Top with half of the cheese and layer the salami, ham and capocollo slices over cheese. Arrange the pepper rings over top and cover with the remaining cheese.
  4. Bring each dough rectangle hanging over side of your pizza pan up over the stacked filling, tucking the dough under the bottom layer to secure it. Repeat around the pizza pan until completed. You can then sprinkle with some black pepper.
  5. Bake in oven for 18 to 22 minutes or until the dough is golden brown. Cool before cutting into serving slices.

Ingredients
  1. 6 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  2. 8 ounces frozen spinach, thawed and squeezed dry of liquid
  3. 2/3 cups part skim ricotta cheese
  4. 1/4 C freshly grated Parmesan cheese, divided
  5. 8 ounces mozzarella cheese, shredded and divided
  6. 1 egg
  7. 2 large cloves of garlic, finely minced
  8. 1/2 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs
  9. 2 eggs, beaten with a dash of milk
  10. 1 cup marinara sauce
  11. salt and pepper
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees and lightly spray a baking dish with non-stick spray. Lay one chicken breast on a cutting board with what would have been the skin side up. Place your hand on top, and using a chefu2019s knife, cut the breast down the middle being sure to stop before cutting all the way through. Open the breast so the cut surface is exposed, cover with plastic wrap and lightly pound the chicken to an even thickness. Season both sides of the chicken well with salt and pepper. Repeat with remaining breasts.
  2. In a medium sized bowl, combine the ricotta, spinach, half of the mozzarella, half of the Parmesan, garlic and 1 egg. Add 1/2 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp of pepper to the mixture. Evenly divide and spread the filling on the inside cut side of the chicken. Roll up the chicken and place it seam side down on the work surface.
  3. On a plate, mix together the bread crumbs and the remaining Parmesan cheese. Place your 2 beaten eggs with the dash of milk in a small bowl. Dip each breast first in the eggs, then roll them into the breadcrumbs to coat. Place them on your greased baking dish seam side down.
  4. Bake for 25 minutes. Remove from the oven and top with marinara sauce and remaining mozzarella cheese. Bake for another 3-4 minutes. Serve with marinara sauce and your other favorite sides.
