Last night was a classic example of how pizza is a great partner with CSA leftovers.
I took the Dahl with Spinach and used it as the sauce. I chopped up the broccoli and sprinkled it on top. I put on dollops of Greek yogurt and sprinkled crushed red pepper on top. The yogurt baked into a nice consistency. I do this again.
I put a light layer of olive oil on the crust and sprinkled on the fajita seasoning from the quesadillas. Then I spread on the cilantro pesto. The cheese was the leftover Monterey Jack from the quesadillas.
