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 Recipes.com,
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!

A CLASSIC  VALENTINE  MEAL!
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
Butter
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.

Sauce
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.

Meatballs
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!

  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.
