Sandwiches, snacks and light meals Italian-style translate into crusty breads stuffed, toasted and topped with color: yellow and orange peppers, dark sauteed greens, pink prosciutto, red tomatoes. Expect the unexpected when bread paired with dark chocolate, sugared fruit and creamy cheese turns into dessert. These tempting delights are almost as easy to make as they are lovely to look at in La Place’s perfect little book. (Hearst, $20)
