Giada's Capanota...Foodie Friday



Giada's Capanota is one of my daughters favorite recipes any time of the year. We love to bring this to the beach on a big crusty piece of fresh Italian bread. Today I am serving this without the cheese on crackers as an appetizer. I enjoy putting this onto a piece of broiled chicken. I did not have any red peppers in my fridge today so I used green. It still tastes wonderful. The good thing is that if I have guests coming for a visit I can prepare this a few days in advance and store it in the fridge. This recipe makes a nice amount and makes a delicious hostess or Christmas gift. I personally make several other versions of this recipe but Giada's Capanota ranks high on my list of favorites.
