Bruschetta is a main course at Fitlife Foods

TAMPA, Florida – At Fitlife Foods, they take an appetizer and take it to the main event. Say hello to bruschetta over penne.

First things first – the components are soaked in a marinade: extra virgin olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt, pepper, garlic and a little basil.

Chef Chris Austin also adds grape seed to the olive oil, which creates higher heat without smoking out the kitchen.

“Now we just let the mushrooms release all of their moisture and let that balsamic vinegar caramelize, and we have to think about dumping our noodles next,” explains Chef Austin. “Our past as gluten-free pasta usually lasts 10 to 12 minutes.”

Chef Austin adds chicken, condiments, and kale. Then he takes the dish off the stove and adds sun-dried tomato pesto.

“So I really wanted to bring that bruschetta flavor home by increasing the tomato by adding the pesto and more basil,” he explained.

Finally, he adds feta to emphasize the Mediterranean atmosphere.

“And just to really add salt and color.”

Now for a try.
