Spiralized Bell Pepper Antipasto

Yesterday, I gave you a spiralized dish to bring to football parties.

Today, I give you a slightly more chic dish to bring to fall cocktail parties.

I guess I’m really into partying right now?

Spiralized Bell Pepper Antipasto

I’m the friend that always gets texted, “I’m going to [insert festive event here], I need to bring an appetizer or salad, what should I bring?!”

I always panic – it’s a lot of pressure! In the summer, I usually defer to my Italian Zucchini Pasta Salad. In the winter, I am going to now defer to my Shredded Brussels Sprouts, Kale and Pear Noodle Salad. Sometimes, I suggest a pear and brie crostini or some prosciutto wrapped asparagus – you can never go wrong there.

Spiralized Bell Pepper Antipasto

Now, I have a new recipe I can recommend: spiralized bell pepper antipasto!

This dish is great, because it’s made with mainly pantry items: canned artichokes, canned olives, balsamic vinegar and dried spices. The only produce involved are bell peppers and fresh basil.

Spiralized Bell Pepper Antipasto

The flavors are so robust! When you roast anything, flavors intensify, and that’s especially true here with the artichokes – they take on a nutty, savory taste that’s extra compatible with the provolone cheese.

This makes four small appetizer portions, but turn it into a meal by adding in a couple extra cups of greens and adding in a protein, like roasted chicken or even something as simple as chickpeas.

Now, all you’ll need is a LBD and a party to bring this delicious dish to!

Your Italian zucchini pasta salads is one of my favorites. Can't wait to try this one!
Ali Maffucci says:
So happy to hear you'll be trying this!
Ross says:
This looks very good. I am not sure how to sprizlize a bell pepper and guidance on the web site? Thanks
Ali Maffucci says:
You can find a how to video on our YouTube channel! YouTube.com/Getinspiralized
Denise says:
I can't wait to try this. Looks delicious. Where does the balsamic vinegar come in though? I didn't see that in the actual recipe.
Jennette says:
You don't have to wait for a party to make this recipe, this dish is the party! I am excited to try it out. I will have to add the inspiralizer to my Christmas wish list. The spiralizer I own was not easy to use and it actually cut me! Yours looks waaaaay better.
Jenn says:
I second the above commenter - balsamic is mentioned in the post but is nowhere to be found in the recipe. Revision please? Excited to try the recipe.
Sarah Danner says:
I agree, no mention of balsamic in instructions. I assume it is mixed with the olive oil and drizzled over dish?
Susan says:
When I first saw this colorful dish I was inspired to try it but already had my menu set for dinner with friends, so I did a little variation. I spiralized the bell pepper (for the first time), one red, one orange, roasted as instructed, and served them as a colorful and tasty topping for spiralized zucchini with pesto. It was a big hit... thanks for the inspiration! I'll try the antipasto version soon.
Reeya says:
You mention garlic powder in the recipe but oregano in the ingredients - which is it? Thanks!

I have nothing prolific to say today (I’ve just been madly testing recipes for this project I’ll be announcing soon) except that today was the first day in my life that I actually enjoyed sliced tomatoes on a sandwich. 🍅 🍞⁣

I’m not a fan of raw tomatoes, except in something subtle like a pico de gallo or if they’re a tiny part of a meal, like a garnish. but today, I made this chickpea tuna salad melt with tomatoes and spinach and LOVED it. 👍🏼⁣

it got me thinking… I can’t be the only one. do you like raw tomatoes? 🤔

luca made a friend today! 👦🏼 🚴‍♂️⁣

one of the things that has made me sad during COVID has been that Luca hasn't spent much time with other kids his age. this summer, we had a little pod of a few kids, but slowly but surely, as the year went on, kids moved to the suburbs, enrolled in school (we didn't feel comfortable), and then as the temperature dropped, the rest of the kids stopped braving the cold and since we felt uncomfortable with indoor playdates, it was really just our little family hanging out. and Luca wasn't hanging out with anyone his age much. ⁣

I have so many thoughts on this. will this change his personality and social skills forever? will he be socially awkward? will he lose out on so many developmental milestones? will this affect his emotional awareness? the list goes on. I know it's only a year or so, but that's over 1/3 of his entire life!⁣

and now that we're in Florida, we just keep to ourselves at my parents' house and don't see any other kids. it's so nice to be together as a family, and I know so many families can't be together right now, so I'm so grateful for that. the other day, Luca saw a 7-year-old boy on a bike in my parents' neighborhood and he asked us if he could be his friend. I almost broke down in tears.⁣

so by chance, we were out on his bike this afternoon and sure enough, we saw the little boy again, riding his bike, with his mother. in that moment, I knew I had to make a move - so I called out to the mother and asked her, "I know this is going to sound weird, but my son would love to hang out with your son! I'd love to get your number so they can ride bikes together sometime!" I was so nervous, haha! ⁣

and just like that, Luca made a friend! they immediately started riding their bikes together (it was so cute I couldn't handle it!!!) and Roma even came a little bit later and literally slipped her hand into the little boy's hand, it was like she was starving for that connection. it was so adorable, and I'm so happy for Luca to have someone to safely play outside with and so I can shed some of this mama worry.⁣

as for these chocolate donuts, search the blog, they’re an oldie but a goodie! 🍩🍫

it's a mouthful, but it's mouth-watering. 👅 my TERIYAKI SALMON with RICED BUTTERNUT SQUASH and SESAME BROCCOLI 🥦  is live on the blog, and it's another must-add to your weekly meal plan. okay I say that all the time, but seriously - I'm only sharing recipes I make for our family, and these have all been slam dunks 🏀⁣
