A Classic Valentine Meal!

Isn't this the sweetest? This scene from Lady and The Tramp
came to mind immediately when I discovered that this
months theme for the Very Good Recipes
challenge is BE MY VALENTINE!  
This month I am one of the judges for this fun challenge, 
so stop by Very Good,
find out all the details, and all about the prize! 
Yes! There is a prize! You're gonna love it!
There are 2 things you need to know.
Your recipe must include something red,
and you have until February 27th to enter!

1 pound Ground Beef
1/2 cup Parmesan Bread Crumbs
1/4 cup Milk
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire Sauce
1/4 teaspoon Pepper
1 small Onion, chopped
1 Egg
Bridgeford Bread Loaf
Garlic Powder
1 can San Marzano Crushed Tomatoes
3 tablespoons Olive Oil
8 fresh Garlic Cloves, minced
Salt and Pepper
Angel Hair Pasta

Heart Rolls
Thaw a loaf of Bridgeford Bread.
Roll it out on a floured surface,
cut out heart shapes with a cookie cutter, and let them rise.
Bake at 350 degrees for 6 minutes.
When they are done,
brush a mix of garlic powder and butter on top of them.

Pour your olive oil in a saucepan, and add the garlic.
Cook until the garlic turns light brown.
Add the can of tomatoes.
Add salt and pepper to taste.
Let simmer.

Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl.
Form the meat into small meatballs with your hands.
Put a little bit of oil in a pan and start frying the meatballs.
Brown the outside, all around.
As your meatballs brown, take them out of the 
frying pan and put them in a pot. They will
cook the rest of the way in the sauce.
Cook your pasta in a pot of boiling water
for about 4 minutes. Drain.
Put your plate together.
Top with your favorite cheese!
Happy Valentine's Day!


  1. Hi Teri, What a delicious-looking Valentines meal. YUM! Thank you for popping by & leaving a comment recently. It's great to "meet" you.

  4. It's really simple, but tasty recipe. I love pasta and I'm sure this dish will serve for Valentines very good. Not only Valentines, but also as a meal for every other romance evening. And I love that you don't need to much time to cook it. Because cooking before romance can kill all the mood. But I still think you need to find out how to write better blog posts, because your writing skills aren't the best.
