Courtesy of www.lesleystowe.com, makers of Raincoast Crisps
Muffuletta originated in New Orleans, where it’s used as a sandwich filling. Bursting with flavor, it makes an interesting addition to soups, tomato sauce, pizza and pasta and it’s great all on its own. Serve it on the original raincoast crisps or baguette slices, either straight up or partnered with fresh mozzarella burrata or fresh ricotta.
