Valentine’s meal that’s sweet even before dessert
Why wait for dessert to give your Valentine’s Day dinner a sweet touch? We’ve created a delicious savory dinner that has a sweet side thanks to a touch of honey.
Start with homemade pasta tossed with a lemon-honey sauce and chopped fresh herbs. Don’t be intimidated by making pasta from scratch. If you enjoy cooking together, dumping the ingredients on the counter and knead them together into a dough. Or for ease, do it in the food processor. Either way, the fun is in rolling it out and cutting it. No special equipment needed.
While you’re working on the pasta, roast the second course — honey-pepper olives and green beans with shrimp. And for dessert? Keep it simple. Fresh strawberries drizzled with honey.
