In the summer time my mind doesn’t normally think, “Eureka! Let’s make a casserole.” But perhaps it should?

I had an opportunity over the last few weeks to sample a number of products from a company called Just BARE Chicken.

Asparagus Parsley Pesto Risotto Bake

March 21, 2007

Asparagus is my favorite vegetable so I jumped at the chance to try the Asparagus Parsley Pesto Risotto Bake featured in the April issue of Rachael Ray’s magazine. Admittedly, I was a little freaked out by the whole “risotto bake” part of the title. I wasn’t entirely sure if it was going to work, but […]
