Valentines Day Dinner, 2013
Going through our pictures I noticed our wonderful Valentine's meal that I wanted to share!

Eight years ago... oh my that's a long time ago... Mike made me a very special dinner for Valentine's Day. This may have been the first time he searched out a recipe, bought the ingredients, and cooked without allowing me to help at all. It was an Emeril Lagasse recipe called Kicked up Pasta with Four Cheeses. Looking back, I have fond memories of watching Emeril Live on the Food Network's early days with Mike. This recipe also very special because after dinner he proposed!

Fast forward, trying to decide what to do on a work day Valentine's Day, we decided to cook this dish again together! It was so wonderful that a new tradition was born! Knowing what we now know about food we weren't afraid to lighten this dish up by adding less cheese and more vegetables (like broccoli and peppers).


I suggest you do the same because it calls for a crazy amount of cheese and since fontina, parmesan, pecorino, and blue cheese are all flavorful, a little goes a long way.


This pasta is just a fancy mac and cheese so you can change up the cheese and additions which is why its going to be a new fun tradition! We also added Dogfish Head Tweason'ale instead of white wine because, since it's gluten free, it tastes a lot like a fruity white wine. It worked really well.


Cook for, cook with, enjoy good food with the people you love! Make memories and traditions!
