Caprese Empanadas

Caprese Empanadaswith Pesto

While living in Buenos Aires, Chef Suzanne encountered these Italian-style empanadas at her favorite casual eatery. Filled with shredded and fresh mozzarella, tomatoes, and fragrant basil, the crispy dough pockets are the perfect hearty snack-turned-meal. To brighten things up, they're served with a side of pesto and a crunchy romaine salad tossed in a creamy balsamic dressing. The only thing more fun than making these is eating them!
