This is our perfect lunch for a lazy Sunday. Simple but high quality products, a little bit of sunshine and a nice conversation. A couple of weeks ago I visited my family in Italy and I brought home some excelent local products. Among them, this fantastic Sopressa vicentina. Last Sunday we decided to eat a little bit… with some Parmigiano cheese and roasted pepper buschette. A really easy Italian lunch than could be perfect for an unexpected dinner with friends this Summer.
If you haven’t tried this speciality from Vicenza, you should look for it and give it a try. It’s lighter than Salami, with a softer consistency. It’s made of the best pork cuts and it’s seasoned with salt and pepper. The result is surprisingly delicate.
The bruschette are so quick to prepare! Roast some peppers (small preferably). Once they are done, remove the burnt skin, drizzle it all well with olive oil, add a pinch of Maldon salt and mix everything together.
Now slice your bread and toast it in a griddle pan. Rub it lightly with a cut clove of garlic. Top it with your roasted pepers and add some slices of good mozarella. Sprinkle some freshly ground pepper. And that’s it!
