Or substitute turkey if you like." *To make amaretto poundcake, simply sprinkle a couple of slices of commercial poundcake with amaretto or coffee-flavored liqueur and top each slice with a scoop of coffee ice cream. Couldnt be easier. *If you make your own pesto sauce, freeze a batch in an ice cube tray. Once firm, pop out the pesto cubes, wrap individually and store in a plastic bag in the freezer. These small amounts come in handy for recipes like this or you can thaw several cubes when larger amounts are needed. *When you cant find fresh pesto, buy it refrigerated or frozen. Frozen pesto thaws quickly at room temperature or in a few seconds in the microwave. *REF: QUICK FIX, "Preso: Pesto Chicken," By JOAN DRAKE, Special to The Times, Wed 5/13/1998 < www.latimes.com/HOME/NEWS/FOOD/ > Sent by Hanneman/buster Notes: MENU * Pesto Chicken Salad * Cherry Tomatoes or Tomato Wedges * Baguette * Amaretto Pound Cake with Coffee Ice Cream Recipe by: Joan Drake, *See ref Posted to MC-Recipe Digest by Kitpath
