The Easy Recipe for Romance on a long winter’s night
San Francisco’s infamous fog and whipping winds inspire romantic picnics- indoors.
Recent buckets of rain and plummeting temperatures are reasons to postpone picnics at the beach and Golden Gate Park and spend time entertaining at home.
The three-prong goal for a perfect meal is: easy, delicious, and impressive.
And, Easy: My Nonni’s Raviolis and Meat Sauce are the perfectly delicious solution on all three counts. In addition, to being the consummate, yummy, comfort food- it couldn’t get any easier; ten minutes from your freezer to your table.
You’ll love the ease of preparation and the seductive smell of the pasta sauce wafting through your home. Less time at the stove – more time with the object of your affections.
Candles, fresh flowers and carefully selected music (Satie, Sinatra, Ella, Louis, Keith Jarrett, Stones) complete the perfect scenario. And yes, dressing up for an indoor picnic is a must. It’s all part of the well-constructed celebration. Starting a picnic with a glass of Proseca is a bubbly, brilliant idea.
My Nonni’s Raviolis and Meat Sauce are found in the frozen food section at Mollie Stones, Bryan’s Lunardi’s, and Andronicos.
This has to be the easiest and the most delicious meal. Trade secret? Have the candles lit, music on, pillows plumped, and your picnic pre-set; have the meat sauce simmering as your guest arrives.
