Cannelloni au Gratin with Sardi Sauce

One thing this dish taught me is that I really need a pasta roller! Despite my best efforts my cannelloni noodles came out a little thicker than I would have licked. Still, home made pasta is always nice. This rich dish consisting of a chicken and spinach filling topped with an oozing cheddar and meat bechamel sauce was a delicious and decadent. Definitely one for the books.

Boccone Dolce (Sweet Mouthful)

Calling this a cake is a somewhat generous term. It’s really just an excuse to eat an obscene amount of whipped cream with strawberries and chocolate, held together by three layers of merengue. It is delicious though. Nothing strange or exotic about these flavour pairings, just a classic winner. Would I do it again? Why not. The only hiccup I had was that my merengue took longer to set than the recipe allotted for. Strange, because normally my oven runs hotter than the Prices. The result was that the merengue didn’t come cleanly off the wax paper and I ended up with three mangled layers for the cake.

Asparagus Milanese

This is one of these dishes that seems so simple you aren’t sure if it really needs/deserves a recipe. However, the answer is yes, yes, YES! An amazing dish that both me and my girlfriend became addicted to as a breakfast dish for a few weeks. The trick of peeling the skin off the asparagus was completely new to me and really reinvents the taste and feel of the vegetable. The combination of parmesan, egg yolk, and asparagus is just to die for. Really good. The brown butter poured over is just cherry on top to this easy, amazing dish.
