Prep time: 10 minutes, serves: 3-4 pax
Appetiser: Saucy Rainbow Crostini
This saucy rainbow crostini looks stunning and tastes even better, yet is simple to make.
Slice a baguette diagonally to about 1 to 2 centimetres thickness – thinner slices will be crispier, thicker slices will be heartier. If you do not have access to baguettes, regular sliced bread will work, but won’t be as crisp. Heat oven to 200C. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Brush Alce Nero™ Extra Virgin Olive Oil on both sides of each slice. Sprinkle minced garlic on each slice. Toast for 7 minutes on each side. Remove from the oven.
For the saucy base, mix Alce Nero™ Organic Pasta Sauce with 1 to 2 tablespoons of Alce Nero™ Apple Cider Vinegar. Generously spread sauce bread on each slice. Add a layer of grated cheese so toppings can adhere. Load up each saucy slice with some Ayam Brand™ Sweet Corn, Ayam Brand™ Processed Peas, black olive slices, and sliced cherry tomatoes. Finish with another sprinkle of grated cheese.
Increase the oven temperature to 220C on the grill function. Pop the tray back into the oven for 5 to 7 minutes or until the cheese is melty and gooey.
Garnish with some fresh basil and dig into Saucy Rainbow Crostini, healthy, colourful, crunchy and scrumptious.
Prep time: 10 minutes, cook time: 25 minutes, serves: 3-4 pax
Mains: Meatballs in Spaghetti Nests
How cute is this dish? Add one large meatball for each family member into the nest for a symbolic and adorable main course.
Prepare meatballs by adding minced onion, black pepper, cornflour, salt and the minced meat of your choice (we used chicken) then form into balls. Coat with breadcrumbs. Bake at 180C for 25 to 30 minutes. While the meatballs are baking, cook Alce Nero™ Whole Wheat Spaghetti following the instructions on the packet, packet drain and allow to cool. Spray an oven-proof bowl with cooking spray. Add the grated cheese into the cooled Alce Nero™ Whole Wheat Spaghetti, toss well until well combined. Set aside.
Mix the Alce Nero™ Pasta Sauce with Vegetables with the Ayam Brand Baked Beans. Pour the pasta sauce mixture into the middle of the nest. Arrange the baked meatballs atop the pasta sauce mix. Sprinkle more grated cheese if desired. Cool slightly, decorate the meatballs to form bird faces, garnish with chopped basil and it is ready to serve.
