  • 1 cup pearl barley
  • 3 cups water
  • 1/2 lb. mozzarella cheese, cut into 1/2 inch cubes
  • 1/2 lb. summer sausage, cut into 1/2 inch cubes
  • Ad
  • 1 (14.75 oz.) jar marinated artichoke hearts, drained and halved
  • 2/3 cup peperoncini, sliced

  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, finely shredded

Bring water to a boil in a medium saucepan; add barley, return to boil, reduce heat to low, cover, and cook 30 to 45 minutes or until barley is tender and liquid is absorbed. Allow to cool.
