Ingredients: 

350 grams spaghettini, broken in half

1 1/2 teaspoon freshly crack black pepper 

This easy one pot meal will be ready to serve in about 15 mins. 

Add water and pasta to a medium size pot, ensure water covers pasta. 

Bring pot to a boil, cook until pasta is al dente and most of the water is absorbed. 

Add pepper and stir, turn off the stove. Add 3/4 cheese and stir. Sprinkle the remaining cheese on top and serve.

Affogatos are a yummy dessert that only really need to be assembled, it doesn’t require you to turn anything on, expect the espresso machine.

 

Ingredients:

A tub of your favourite ice cream (traditional Affogato calls for vanilla ice cream but feel free to switch it up with any flavour)

One shot of espresso

and /or

A drizzle of fave liquer

My fave is a black cherry ice cream, a shot of espresso, a drizzle of rumchatta, and a sprinkle of cinnamon.

 

And voila! This 3-step delight will make your usual get together even more special. There’s nothing like great conversation, great company and great food especially for Galentine’s Day! Bon appetite!
