Valentine’s Day weekend is finally here! This weekend is a time to celebrate with the people that you love the most. As is tradition for many couples, you’ll see a lot of them out to dinner at some point during the weekend. The only problem with going out to eat for the weekend is how crowded every restaurant will be. If you can’t get a reservation for the weekend, don’t worry! There are plenty of at-home recipes you can make to spice up the evening. We show off some of our favorites below!
Spicy Penne Arrabbiata
If you’re looking to add a bit of spice to your Valentine’s Day date, why not literally add some spice to it? Spicy Penne Arrabbiata is a fantastic choice to make that happen! Pasta and tomato sauce blend well with the garlic and peppers used to give the dish its kick. As long as you have plenty to drink to go with it, this is a fantastic meal idea!
Filet Steak With Italian Red Wine Sauce
There’s nothing that pairs better with an Italian staple than a nice glass of wine. This recipe takes the best of both worlds and combines them together! Red wine sauce pairs brilliantly with a filet cooked to your liking. Filet mignon is a classic staple of a luxurious restaurant meal, and now you can have it all in the comfort of your own home!
What better way to celebrate the love between you and your significant other than with some nice flowers? These flowers aren’t your ordinary flowers, however; they are made entirely from pasta! They require a bit of assembly and refrigeration ahead of time, but the result will look just as beautiful as an ordinary rose.
White Seafood Lasagna
Like the union of two people, the white seafood lasagna is a fantastic union between seafood and Italian cuisine. Shrimp, scallops and white crab meat combine brilliantly with the traditional ingredients of a lasagna dish. The only other difference between this and regular lasagna is that white cream sauce is used instead of the traditional red sauce.
Italian Cuisine at Trattoria Il Panino
There’s nothing more romantic for Valentine’s Day weekend than an evening at Trattoria Il Panino! We bring the traditional Italian experience right to the heart of Boston’s most storied restaurant district in the North End. For a Valentine’s Day dinner you won’t soon forget, make a reservation with us today!
