FREGOLA APERTIVO – Trader Joe’s Strawberry Contest

P.S. – I didn’t win😢

Strawberries are the angels of the earth, innocent and sweet with green leafy wings reaching heavenward. ~Jasmine Heiler

Hi there,

I really have never been competitive but lately have taken to entering recipe contests. Maybe I am doing this because I have never been any good at sports and now subconsciously decided that the kitchen is my arena? Where is Dr. Jong when you need him? Anyway, since it is strawberry season, I thought I would share the recipe with you.

INGREDIENTS

  • 8 OUNCES OF LOW SUGAR STRAWBERRY PRESERVES
  • 2 TABLESPOONS OF BASALMIC VINEGAR
  • 1/2 CUP OF SHREDDED FRESH BASIL
  • 5 OUNCES OF SLICED PROSCIUTTO
  • 11 OUNCES OF GOAT CHEESE

PREPARATION

  • mix the strawberry preserves with the basalmic vinegar and basil.
  • reserve some basil for garnish
  • on a piece of parchment paper layer overlapping pieces of prosciutto
  • on top of the prosciutto spread the goat cheese
  • top the goat cheese with the strawberry preserve mixture
  • roll up jelly roll fashion
  • refrigerator for 1 hour before slicing

  1. So, this was a contest that Trader Joe’s hosted? That sounds like my kind of competition! Your appetizer entry has every thing I love, including that glass of wine. It’s a winner in my book. 😉

  2. Oh, This looks AMAZING. I’m keeping this recipe, Bernadette, and using it for a outdoor gathering I’m going to next week. My friends will be so impressed! Thank you.

  3. This looks absolutely delish! I’m gonna try it some day when I cook again!

  4. Sweet, salty and creamy, a winning combination as far as I am concerned…I think your recipe sounds great. From the title, I didn’t know what to expect as the one time I used fregola, it was a Sardinian pasta in the shape of small round balls. 😊

  5. Sounds pretty good! When will you know about the contest? Wishing you success! Thanks for sharing at the What’s for Dinner party. Hope your week is fantastic!
