Portobello Mushroom Burgers with Pesto, Mozzarella and Red Peppers and a great recipe for Walnut Spinach Pesto from Daniel Holzman

         Our friend Stephen, the vegetarian, came to stay for a couple of days recently.  I always use Stephen’s visits as a chance to work on vegetarian recipes.  This particular stay, I had one triumph and one miserable fail.  I won’t go into the fail because it did produce a pesto that’s a great addition to any collection of recipes for that summer favorite.   And the triumph?  A Portobello Burger that even the most carnivorous among us can call his own.

Sicilian-Style Meatballs

I knew I wasn’t the only one who loved meatballs when I read about “The Meatball Shop” in the New York Times.  The place, which is at 84 Stanton Street on the Lower East Side, opened just 6 weeks ago. It sells only meatballs.  2 ounce meatballs of all kinds—beef, pork, chicken, salmon, vegetables--plus a weekly special.  They’re served with 4 kinds of sauce and focaccia ($7.00), as a slider ($3.00) or on a baguette ($9.00).  I can hardly wait to go. However, between the time I wrote this and this posting, the Times wrote a rather sad lament about the Meatball Ball Shop in a mini review last week.  So I encourage you to try these. Because I can vouch for how sensational the recipe I followed for Sicilian Meatballs in Food and Wine magazine.
