Ever have one of those last minute get-togethers where your man calls and says he’s got a surprise for you and would love to come over. You invite him to dinner and then realize you only have so much time to freshen up, find something great to wear, and whip up one of his favorite dishes – he loves Italian. You open the refrigerator and think what can I make in minutes. Hmmm, we have pesto, ravioli, pine nuts, cherry tomatoes, and left over grilled asparagus. I also have everything I need for a side salad. And thank goodness I saved that fab bottle of Barolo.

So here it goes – a quick dish that leaves plenty of time to get ready. Oh, did I mention the living is a bit of a mess! Better get going……

The Happy Ending: He was surprised and delighted with the Barolo wine and ravioli dinner. And I was thrilled with his plans to go to the British Virgin Islands! Don’t you love surprised xoxo
