Sensational Sides: Cheese-Filled Summer Side Dishes

All winter long I fill my side dishes with cheesy, gooey goodness. From cheesy roasted vegetables to cheese-filled pastas and casseroles, it’s a go-to ingredient fit for comfort food-filled months. But with the warm weather approaching, I’m not giving up one of my favorite forms of dairy. These summery side dishes have enough cheese to satisfy my cravings without being too heavy.

1. Antipasto Salad

Giada’s summery pasta salad features two types of Italian cheese: Asiago and provolone. The salty, crumbly Asiago and the more mild, smooth provolone are tossed with fusilli pasta, salami, turkey, olives, red peppers and a homemade red wine vinaigrette.

2. Mozzarella Stuffed Portobellos
This is a great main dish for vegetarians, but it also works well as a side dish for a larger party. These large mushrooms are roasted, stuffed with mozzarella, topped with Parmesan and breadcrumbs and then roasted further until the topping is a nice and golden brown.

3. Grilled Eggplant and Goat Cheese Salad
Giada’s recipe is the perfect, quick solution for a party-ready side dish. This goat-cheese topped platter is ready in just eighteen minutes. Inside on a grill pan or outdoors on a grill, slices of eggplant are grilled for just eight minutes before being plated and topped with pine nuts, goat cheese, basil and mint. Drizzle the finished dish with extra-virgin olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper.

4. Tri-Colore Orzo
This five-star recipe is sure to be a crowd-pleaser. Cooled orzo pasta is tossed with ricotta salata or feta cheese, which impart their great salty flavor to the overall dish. Add in arugula, dried cherries, basil and pine nuts for a colorful presentation.
