Valentine's Day Meal for 2

Hi guys,

As Valentine's day is upon us, I have decided to make a Dinner for 2 for those of us that do not want to face the hustle & bustle of packed restaurants on Valentine's day.

Here is my Italian inspired 2 course Valentine Dinner for 2.


Watch the video tutorial here:-

So for starter I have gone for the Tomato & Basil Bruschetta.
Ingredients:-

1 fresh tomato (diced)
1 clove of diced garlic
1 clove of garlic for glazing
some chopped basil
2 teaspoons of Balsamic Vinegar
Ciabatta bread cut into slices.
2 tablespoons of Olive oil

Method:-

Cut the bread into slices of your choice and glaze with some Olive oil




Bake for 6 minutes.




Whilst baking, prepare the sauce by adding the diced tomato, diced garlic and balsamic vinegar in a bowl. Mix well and once the bread has finished baking, rub the whole garlic on each side of the bread and then now add the tomato basil on to your bread as desired.





For the main you'll need:-

Ingredients:-
Cooked Tagliatelle Pasta- only cook for 1 minute
Raw King Prawns or replace with Chicken or beef if preferred.
Diced Bacon
1 onion
Salt
Pepper
Stock cube (optional)
1 cup of Double cream
1 Fresh Tomato (Diced)
5 tablespoons of Parmesan cheese
1 clove of diced garlic
Parsley

Method:-

In a non stock pan, fry the bacon pieces without adding any oil; remember the bacon is full of oil so you don't need to add any extras. Now add the prawns after frying to your satisfaction. Add some salt & pepper to taste including the stock cube which is optional.

Once fried, take them out of the pan and place aside. Now using the same pan (without washing), fry the onion, tomato & garlic. Add the cream and let it simmer for 3 ,minutes under low heat.


Now add the pasta, mix well and add your bacon & prawn. Add the Parmesan cheese & finally add the parsley. Now leave to simmer for few minutes on low heat and all done.



Set the table and Enjoy your dinner. Have a lovely Valentines day everyone.
