Friday Foodday

Happy Friday lovebugs! Here are my favorite recipes for the week.

Chicken Pasta Pesto Bake
c/o Stephanie Cooks
1/2 pound pasta, cooked al dente
1 1/2 cups cooked chicken, chopped small
2/3 cup pesto
1/2 cup grated parmesan or pecorino romano cheese

1- Combine the pasta, chicken, and pesto. Toss until evenly mixed. Pour into a baking dish. Top with the cheese.

Clam Pizza
c/o Great Eats with Petes

2 dozen little neck clams
1 pizza dough
Flour for dusting
Olive Oil
1-2 garlic cloves, minced
Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
Place clams on a baking sheet. Place clams in the oven and bake for 2-3 minutes or until the clams begin to open. DON’T WALK AWAY! This is only to open the clams a little so you can shuck them not cook them. Remove from oven and allow to cool. Once cool remove the clam from the shell along with the clam juice and set aside in a bowl.
Dust a clean, flat surface with flour. Dust the pizza dough with flour. Roll out dough into the shape you desire.
Brush with olive oil. Sprinkle the dough with garlic. Sprinkle the cheese over the pizza dough. Top with shucked clams and some of their juice. Sprinkle with parsley. Bake in oven on a cookie sheet, pizza pan or pizza stone. Allow approximately 17 minutes for the pizza to cook. Remove from oven.
Slice the pizza and Enjoy!

Pour into hot pan and stir constantly until eggs scramble and are cooked to your liking. Remove from pan. Wipe pan out with paper towel.
