Maybe we should be discussing eggplant. Can you make pesto with eggplant?

I'm frustrated. I need an index of every DC member and what his/her DH/DW likes too.

At least I'll be simple on everybody. I'm single. Just me and DD (dear dog). DD likes anything as long is it remotely resembles food. He'd probably eat pesto and cilantro and basil and even Brussels sprouts. And then he'd throw it up in the middle of my (our/his) bed.

It's probably best that I just feed DD his dog food. And you can feed DH his whatever pesto, and you can pretend to like your Brussels sprouts.

Arugula + walnuts are great paired in a pesto. ;)

I have also had a pesto that used green olives as the base along with the other usual suspects (a touch of basil, olive oil, garlic, parmigiano & pine nuts). Over handmade gnocchi.

I seldom eat pizza without tomatoes, however this is the most gorgeous white pizza I've ever tasted: shrimps tails, red radicchio, mozzarella, ricotta, oil and pepper.
But please don't ask me how to prepare it, because I ate it in some pizzeria!

Those sound fantastic, thanks for the ideas, Zereh!

I'm sure my imagination won't fail me...Pizza is pretty much a no brainer! Thanks, Luca!

It's time to start bugging you about ravioli fillings...

You're welcome Princess!
I just spent hours during the holidays making tons of tortellini, with my fiancee's brother, according to their family recipe (every family in Italy has its own secret formula for the best recipe ). We ate them all, and my diet went down the drain...

Is it true that they are made to resemble the belly button of Venus?

BBQ sauce with shreaded beef makes a good pizza. Chile and peppers. What does he like? Meat , fish , Just about anything you put on a sandwhich will make a good pizza.
I like breakfast pizza's too, eggs and cheese with the dough brushed with olive oil.
