A Recipe of health, sex, happiness and love
The Italians have a special kind of romance. To me it is very rustic and passionate; a mood unto its own. I love the food, the singer Bocelli and the Amalfie coast where my husband asked me to marry him.
So tonight we go simple Italian.
Start with a simple salad of mixed herbs and greens topped with slices of fresh avocado and a sprinkling of goat cheeses. On the side added crusty bread or a cracker I found in Whole foods market called Two Moms in the Raw – gluten free, oil free and sugar free raw cracker made from flax seed and other ingredients. Light a crispy it goes well with a light salad and goat cheese.
Chill and serve a Sauvignon Blanc with the meal
Angel Hair Pasta with fresh tomatoes and basil
Angel Hair Pasta 4 ounces for two servings– I’m using De Boles Organic whole wheat angle Hair
1 tsp minced garlic
2 roma tomatoes chopped into small bite size pieces
¼ cup fresh chopped basil leaves
1 tablespoon of olive oil
½ cup of freshly shredded parmesan cheese
Cook pasta according to package directions, drain and then set aside and keep warm
In a medium size pan coated with a little olive oil sauté garlic until tender. Toss in tomatoes and basil and cook for about 2 minutes. Toss together pasta and tomato mixture. Place on separate serving plates and sprinkle the top of each serving with the parmesan cheese.
Dessert Raspberry sauce over vanilla gelato
Purchase vanilla gelato.
1 cup fresh raspberries
1 tablespoon of sugar
1 tablespoon of orange juice
Combine in a blender and puree
Serve over the top of gelato.
Light and easy this meal can be prepared in no time. You’ll discover the substance of happiness mixed with sexuality and topped with health and then finish it all with a saucy splash of love.
Cibo Molto Buono!
