Do you have any fun plans for Valentine's this year?
I will be living indirectly through all of you Americans on Instagram tomorrow, because Valentine's Day is not really celebrated here in Barcelona. Instead, they have Sant Jordi Day, a vacation here in April, when everyone gives each other books and roses and celebrates the story of a princess who was rescued from being eaten by a continue, not less! So we have to wait. (I can not wait!)
But otherwise, tomorrow will probably be a normal day here in Spain. I have a job, a haircut and Spanish classes on the agenda. So we'll probably settle in for a low-key dating night here at home with some Netflix. And of course, Pasta and chocolate. Why not Valentine is complete in my book without some kind of indulgent pasta and chocolate for dessert. ♡♡♡
So to that end, I am planning to make another round of these Dreamy Chocolate Lava Cakes and some kind of big green salad. And then for our main course, my husband has requested is pasta. We have been making several versions last year, especially since there are good mushrooms here in Spain. And oh my God, hit the spot. every time.
I love it because we use twice the amount of mushrooms as the pasta on the plate, which adds tons of flavor and makes it nice and filling. (Feel free to use the type of mushrooms you like best.) But this tasty sauce, simmered with rosemary, white wine, garlic, balsamic, vegetable broth, crushed red pepper flakes, is absolutely guess. It is a total vegetarian meal. And if you're looking for a one plate show this Valentine's Day, we can't recommend it highly enough.
So get all your favorite types of mushrooms together and let's make some pasta!
