Daily Special: Cannizzaro Sauces

Creamy Goat Cheese & Mascarpone Appetizer    


Serves 4-6

2 Oz Goat Cheese

2 Oz Mascarpone (Cream Cheese is a good substitute)

8 Oz Cannizzaro Marinara or Cannizzaro Arrabbiata

1 Small Ciabatta Bread (A Baguette or Italian Loaf are great too!)


Spray a small, oven proof shallow dish. 

Whip together the 2 cheeses (room temperature is easier), form in to a ball and refrigerate for about 10 minutes

Pour Cannizzaro Marinara in to dish. 

Place cheese mixture in the center of the Marinara.

Bake at 400̊ for 10-15 minutes, or until bubbly and hot.


While it bakes, cut your bread lengthwise and spray lightly with Olive Oil. 

Cut in to triangle shaped pieces (big enough to dip!) and lightly toast in oven.

Place the toast points around the edge of your dip and serve – making sure you get that hot, melty cheese & lots of sauce on each bite!
