The View: Michael Symon Spinach & Feta Pizza Wheels Appetizer
Michael Symon showed Rosie O’Donnell a simple Spinach & Feta Pizza Wheels appetizer that uses pizza dough, spinach, feta cheese, and pine nuts to make something comparable to Spanakopita. It’s a great recipe because anyone can make it and it doesn’t take a lot of time.
The View: Mario Batali Arista Toscana Entree
Mario Batali explained his Arista Toscana to Whoopi Goldberg as “a roasted pork loin studded with garlic cloves, rubbed with fennel pollen, salt, and a little bit of rosemary.” But that’s not all. After more ingredients and steps, “it becomes succulent, delicious, and magnificent.” You could serve it hot or at room temperature. Plus, cold leftovers will make great sandwiches.
The View: Daphne Oz Ginger Glazed Carrots Side Dish
Daphne Oz’s daughter Philomena will be turning one year old next year, and that means this is her first Christmas. She shared Ginger Glazed Carrots with The View guest co-host Rachel Feinstein, which would pair well with Mario’s entree. “This is a really simple side dish,” she said. “The secret ingredient is ginger ale.”
