Here is an awesome summer meal that is quick and easy and also semi healthy! I found this recipe on my allrecipes.com iPhone app (amazing and free) called spinach and feta pita bake. I’ve made some variations and it has become one of our family favorites. It is so great for summer meals when you don’t have much time (and/or energy when its hot!) and want to do something simple.
Here are the ingredients:
4 pieces of garlic (or regular flavor) naan bread
1 jar of sun dried tomato pesto (6 oz)
1 to 1 1/2 cups sliced grape tomatoes
3 oz sliced mushrooms
6 oz (3/4 cup) crumbled feta cheese
1/4 cup of grated or shredded Parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons extra virgin oil
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
First you start with laying the naan out on a cookie sheet or baking pan, and you spread a layer of sun-dried tomato pesto onto the naan. Sun-dried tomato pesto has a strong flavor so take that into consideration in the amount that you use. A 6 ounce can of pesto will be plenty if you want to make four pizzas. After you spread the pesto on the pizzas, add the grape tomatoes and sliced mushrooms. You can vary the amount to your liking.
After the mushrooms and tomatoes, sprinkle about 1/8 cup parmesan cheese on each, and follow with about a fourth of a cup of the feta cheese (I use the fat-free and it tastes great) on top of each naan. Drizzle with a little extra virgin olive oil before putting it into the oven. It adds a bit of flavor and keeps everything moist. However If you are really watching your diet you can lessen the olive oil or leave it out altogether and it will turn out just fine. Season with black pepper to taste.
Bake at 350 for 12-14 min and enjoy! Each naan is approximately 500 calories (If you use regular feta as opposed to fat free). This recipe is a crowd pleaser and tastes way too good to be so simple!
