Giada’s Tuna and Artichoke Panini


Tuna and Artichoke Panini

Even though I primarily buy organic products, I can’t resist a good bargain at Costco.  Why yes, I do need 12 cans of tuna, thank you for asking. 4 jars of Nutella, of course.  25 pound jars of capers, if you insist.

So, yeah, I have cans of tuna.  Lots of cans of tuna.  Using my handy dandy Eat Your Books program, I search for tuna in my cookbooks, and find Tuna and Artichoke Panini in Everyday Italian: 125 Simple and Delicious Recipesfrom Giada.

Oh my.  Such goodness.  If you are looking for a quick and easy sandwich (perfect for football watching), look no further.  I’m not going to bother retyping the recipe, because I did not change a thing (other than to add only half the amount of artichokes called for, simply because I apparently can’t read a recipe correctly before going grocery shopping).  So, follow the link above to the Food Network site, or look it up in your cookbook, and if you don’t have Giada’s Everyday Italian Cookbook, I highly recommend it.

    Oh yeah! That is a good recipe! But here’s another Giada one for you to try! Pirate Pasta! You can find it at Everyday Food and it too has tuna in it and it’s so yummy!

    I am still laughing. There are only two of us home this year but I am still shopping Costco. And I have a “pile” of tuna on my storage shelves. Thanks for sharing.

    I love tuna and sometimes get several cans on sale also. We aren’t near a Costco’s –but we do have Sam’s…..

    Thanks for sharing.

    I stocked up on canned artichokes at some point this spring for some recipe that I never ended up making…so I have the opposite of your problem! Guess it’s time to buy some tuna!

    I think I need a 25 pound jar of capers. And who doesn’t need a dozen cans of tuna? Says the lady who buys 6 pound cans of tuna a case at a time.
