Years ago I had a wonderful pasta dish at Romano’s Macaroni Grill. Its ingredients were all favorites of mine. And while the dish has changed names several times over the years, it’s still on the menu. Since they are not in the habit of sharing recipes, I set about to create my own version. What follows is not so much a “recipe” as a “suggestion”. The picture above is from the restaurant’s website.
This meal was a spur of the moment dinner for a young friend who needed a little pampering. You can see the table here. One of the nice things about this meal is that I usually have all the ingredients on hand.
Saute’ thawed frozen spinach, pine nuts, and minced garlic in butter. Add a little white wine if you like. I threw in some thawed precooked and peeled shrimp at the last minute. Serve tossed with angel hair pasta and freshly grated parmesan cheese! Delicious!
Dessert was leftover cupcakes from a friend’s birthday. The birthday girl’s request was cupcakes as close to wedding cake as I could make them. White cake, white icing, and pearlized sugar pearls sent to me by Bridget at Bake at 350. If you love to bake and have not visited Bridget, you are in for a real treat. Beware—You may be there for hours :)
