"Mjill, antipasto means before the pasta course. It's an Italian word, so anti does not mean "against" like it does in English. At any rate, looking forward to trying this. Looks wonderful! I'll leave out the sausage and cheese and either add smoked tofu or veggie pepperoni. :)"

"For those who don't know, Giardinera is basically pickled cauliflower, carrots, celery, onions and peppers and can be found in the Italian section of your grocery store. I made this but I used salami instead of the summer sausage cause there is nothing italian about summer sausage. I also used provolone cheese... Yum!"
