Our home-made birthday dinner, took me a few hours to make dessert but I was able to whip up the main dish in about 30 minutes.
Spaghetti Aglio, Olio, e Peperoncino,
I found the recipe here
*I added spinach leaves, Parmesan cheese & grilled chicken after adding spices. The spinach steamed nicely, the flavors all blended nicely.
Gorgonzola Garlic Bread,
can be made with red wine or grape juice
And last but not least the amazing desert I am pretty proud of. I can't believe I pulled it off, but it was delicious.
Layered Lemon Tart
*Lucky for me I had just bought a food processor and was able to make the whole recipe using just that magical machine & a sauce pan...lovely!
Leftovers are going to taste oh so yummy!!
