Take and bake from the PCC Deli

The midweek conundrum: You’re too tired to cook, but you’re not up to dining out. The coziest solution? Grab something great made right at PCC and warm it up when you’re ready to eat.



The ultimate in cheesy comfort, either the beef or vegetarian lasagnas are sure to satisfy the family on a blustery night indoors. A simple Caesar salad and loaf of crispy garlic bread will turn it into a complete meal — or just head to the wine department, grab a bottle of your favorite red and call it good.

Chili verde

Braised pork in a bright and savory tomatillo-based green sauce, this stew goes beautifully with classic taco components like fresh corn tortillas, cotija cheese and avocado, or cook up a pot of buttery grits and ladle some chili verde on top. If you’re up for a bit more effort, poach an egg for a topper and live it up.

Southwest Corn Pudding

A PCC classic, this rich casserole is a savory blend of organic corn, cornmeal and chiles baked with egg whites, quark and pepper jack cheese. It stays creamy and soft in the center, with appealing crispy edges, and any leftovers can serve as a terrific cold breakfast or office lunch. Collect a few fresh veggies to crunch alongside and you’ll be perfectly satisfied.
