You are not going to be very happy with me when I tell you this, but where I live, in the Bay area in California, we are having the coolest summer in 40 years.
It's wonderful. This week temperatures are in the high 70s and then in the evenings and mornings it's positively chilly. Sweater weather. Actually, I am wearing a sweater right now. It's due to what our smug weather people call natural air conditioning, meaning that the cold fog from the coast rolls in every night and cools everything down.
Never fear -- I'm sure it won't last long. After all, the rest of the world appears to be having the hottest summer on record. So. You may or may not want to make Italian Pot Pie, as it's really a winter recipe.
It's a recipe from the December 2008 issue of Everyday Food, and it's awesome. It's one of my husband's favorites. Here's the step-by-step.
Now this comes out HOT, as you might imagine. As pot pies are wont to do. I'm not sure if it's a good recipe for children unless you really let it cool down for a bit first.
But it sure is tasty. That dough on top is really the clincher. It's slightly crispy and has a hint of rosemary and parmesan. Just delicious.
