This is a combination of several fresh fig appetizer recipes. The flavors of fresh figs, tangy goat cheese, salty almonds, sweet honey, and balsamic vinegar contrast to make these a delicious and very pretty appetizer. Arrange figs in a circle, tops facing in, for a flower effect and this will be a lovely addition to a bridal shower menu or any formal event.
A host of vegetables are in every bite of this substantial casserole. Onions, garlic, mushrooms, zucchini, tomatoes, oregano and brown sugar are in the sauce, while spinach, cottage cheese, basil, eggs Parmesan and mozzarella make the filling.
