An easy, no-cook, 5 ingredient appetizer. Kalamata and green olives with chopped sun-dried tomatoes marinated in the sun-dried tomato oil and rosemary. Nice and easy, the hardest part is opening the jar.
It’s Christmas in a few days. I hope everyone who celebrates is ready for their holiday. After Christmas we have New Year’s Eve, that means parties, drinks like pear ginger champagne cocktail and appetizers. I like to serve the olives in different size bowls, that way you can spread them around the appetizer table and the combination of the black and green olives make for a pretty presentation along with fruit and tomato soup shooters with mini grilled cheese.
In this recipe the flavourful sausage is simmered in a pesto chicken broth with carrots, potatoes and corn, so plenty of flavours going on. I have also added cheddar cheese to make this soup rich and velvety. Another cheese that goes well in this soup is mozzarella or provolone. To finish the soup, I added fresh basil for extra flavour. This potato and sausage pesto soup is one of those warming soups that is great for just about any night of the week. It's simple, and it's quick, and you probably have most of the ingredients in your pantry already.
