Be Our Valentine!

Be Our Valentine!

Valentine’s Day is fast approaching and what better way to show your love than preparing a multi-course dinner?  Whether you’re trying to impress a new love interest or your longtime spouse, these recipes will make you look like a gourmet chef.  We made sure that they are healthy and easy to prepare, but are delicious and will make you look like a professional!


Starting with an amuse-bouche, we suggest these pretty Polenta Wedges with Tomato Tapenade.  It uses prepared polenta, which can be tricky to perfect.  Moving on to an appetizer, these Mini Meatballs with Garlicky Tomatoes can be prepared ahead of time so that you’re not slaving over the stove all day.  Then you can’t go wrong by serving this simple, yet satisfying Tomato Soup and using a heart-shaped cookie cutter, toast up some bread to pop in there as a crouton.


Depending on the duration of your meal, you may want to serve a pasta course before the main.  This Tomato Basil Gnocchi is a visually stunning twist to a classic dish.  If you’re looking for something a little more hearty in a pasta dish, try this Red Pepper Alfredo Pasta dish.


You’ve made it to the main course!  Using Red Sun Farms peppers and tomatoes, why not treat your sweetheart to this Grilled Marinated Flank Steak Salad – nutritious and delicious!  Not a fan of salad?  Maybe these Chicken Roulades with Marinated Tomatoes would suffice?


For a delectable dessert, try this Red Sun Farms’ recipe for Chocolate Avocado Mousse with Hazelnut Crisps and Berries and your Valentine will be asking for seconds!


Of course, if you’re trying to keep things simple and you’re running out of time, we suggest these whimsical Heart-shaped Pizza with Heart-shaped Bell Pepper Slices.  It’s something the two of you can make and enjoy together…. And after all, isn’t that what Valentine’s Day is all about?
