Recipes to charm your love
How about cooking a mouth-watering recipe with your love?
When you're married, every shared moment is magical, and to make those candlelit dinners even more special, we have compiled some recipes for you to cook together.
Tagliatelle with fresh peas and bacon
2 cups tagliatelle pasta
1 cup frozen peas
150g bacon bits
Parmesan shavings to decorate salt and freshly ground black pepper
Cook the pasta according to the package instructions. While one of you monitors the pasta, the other can put a large frying pan over a lit burner. Once the pan has heated up, add the bacon bits. Stir occasionally until golden brown.
Switch the heat off to avoid burning the bacon and add the frozen peas. Season with the freshly ground black pepper. Bacon tends to be salted already, so more salt isn't necessary. Mix well with the heat off to warm up the peas.
Now all you have to do is drain the tagliatelle and transfer it to the frying pan. Over medium heat, stir the pasta into the sauce. Taste to check the seasoning. Serve with the Parmesan shavings on top and enjoy!
300g pasta (farfalle, penne, or spaghetti)
180g cherry tomatoes
10 mini buffalo mozzarella balls
1 handful of basil leaves extra virgin olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
Quarter the tomatoes and mini mozzarellas and pick the basil leaves, one by one. Cook the pasta according to the package instructions, drain, and mix the chopped ingredients in a bowl.
Now drizzle with olive oil, season with salt and pepper to taste, and mix everything when the pasta is ready. Don't forget to reserve some basil leaves as garnish.
Chocolate and walnut crepe
For the crepe:
1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 tbsp. cooking oil
1/2 tsp. salt
To make the batter, blend all ingredients except the butter, making sure that no flour remains stuck to the blender bowl. Use the butter to grease a frying pan and place it over medium heat. Once it's hot, add a ladleful of batter and move it around so the entire bottom is coated.
Use a spatula to lift the crepe a little to see if it's golden brown. When it is, flip it and cook until both sides are golden brown. Remove the crepe from the frying pan and put it on a plate. Repeat until all the batter has been used.
For the filling:
2 to 3 dark chocolate squares
1 tbsp. butter
250ml fresh whipping cream
2 tbsp. sugar
1 cup walnuts
Roughly chop up the chocolate and walnuts on a cutting board. Add all ingredients, except the walnuts, to a saucepan over low heat. Stir until obtaining a uniform mixture and let it boil for up to 3 minutes.
One of you can place one crepe at a time on a plate. The other one can use a tablespoon to add the filling to the center of the crepe and spread it. Fold the crepe twice (fold it in half twice). Repeat the procedure with all the crepes. Drizzle the crepes with the chocolate filling and scatter the chopped walnuts on top for a finishing touch.
