Pasta is a bit of a weakness of mine, particularly the regular, non-whole grain variety. We don’t eat it very often so I consider it a splurge of sorts. A fabulous, carb-y splurge. A lot of you asked for Valentine’s Day dinner suggestions and this left me a bit overwhelmed. The possibilities are endless because it depends entirely on what type of food you like, how simple or involved you want it to be, fancy or casual, etc. With so many directions to choose from, eventually I settled on something that sounded really good to me and that thing was pasta.
Not just pasta, but also tomato cream sauce, oven roasted tomatoes and plenty of melted cheese. Now we’re talking. To me, this is an excellent special occasion sort of meal and would be a lovely choice for the holiday. So, if pasta is your thing, you’re all set for Valentine’s Day. If not, never fear! Tomorrow I’ll share a round up of several potential Valentine menus including suggestions for appetizers, sides, and/or desserts as well. (Incidentally, my second choice would be a Mexican feast. Cinco de Mayo, part dos – guacamole and margaritas are pretty romantic to me.)
