Balsamic-Roasted Strawberries with Pistachios and Honeyed Mascarpone

Balsamic-Roasted Strawberries with Pistachios and Honeyed Mascarpone

Roasted strawberries soften a little as their natural sugars caramelize, creating a flavor that is matched well by our balsamic, whose flavor also intensifies as it reduces in the oven. A scoop of honeyed mascarpone served with a spoonful of these balsamic-roasted strawberries makes for a lovely, easy dessert. Serves about 4 to 6.

Balsamic Strawberries:

Honeyed Mascarpone:

  • 1 cup mascarpone
  • 1/4 cup honey such as local, raw & unfiltered orange blossom honey from Honey Hole Honey Co., available only at Sigona’s
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract optional

Optional garnishes:

  • 1/2 cup shelled raw pistachios
  • Fresh basil or mint julienned, depending on flavor preferences


  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, toss the strawberries with the balsamic until well coated. Dump out the berries and balsamic onto the prepared baking sheet and spread out in a single layer. Roast for 12 to 15 minutes, shaking pan once.
  • Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, whip together the mascarpone and honey until well combined.
  • Serving options:
    A). Scoop the mascarpone onto the center of a serving tray. Surround the mascarpone with the berries, top with pistachios and/or other desired garnish and serve.
    B). Scoop a couple tablespoons of the mascarpone into individual serving dishes. Top each serving with some of the strawberries, finishing with desired garnish. Serve & enjoy!
