North End Italian Cookbook
Does anybody have a copy? I lent mine to somebody and it disappeared into the ether. I'm sorely missing two recipes, the stuffed artichokes and the stuffed Italian frying peppers. Could some dear person either paraphrase those recipes or e-mail them to me?
Baked Stuffed Peppers (Page 137)6 green Italian finger peppers, l c fresh soft bread crumbs,2 garlic cloves chopped, 1 TBS chopped fresh parsley, 1/2c freshly grated Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper to taste and olive oil. Remove stems and seeds from the peppers leaving a small opens. Stuff with above ingredients except olive oil. Place on baking sheet, drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with a little salt. Bake 450 degrees on middle rack 20 minutes until brown. Let rest 1/2 hour before serving. The stuffed artichokes have to prepared ahead for stuffing. Stuffing recipe is 1 c fresh bread crumbs, 2 tbs chopped fresh parsley, 1/3 c freshly grated Parmesan cheese, 1 garlic clove chopped, salt and pepper to taste and olive oil. Stuffed artichokes place in deep saucepan with 1 c water and 3 garlic cloves. Drizzle artichokes with olive oil. Cover and let water come to a boil. Cook over low heat 45 minutes until tender.
My parents got me this cookbook years ago (autographed even, since they apparently knew Marguerite) and I have never made either of these recipes, but that will soon change! Thanks for the inspiration.
I just picked up a replacement copy on E-bay. We should be getting those peppers in the Farmers' Market soon. Looking forward to it.
