Our starter of mozzarella sticks with napoletana sauce
Spinach and ricotta lasagna, chicken penne pasta and pork and fennel meatballs with spaghetti
I stole a bite of my friend's lasagna sauce, and wow. It tasted so fresh and tomato-like, for lack of a better word! My chicken penne pasta was pretty delicious too, not overwhelmingly gluggy or sickening like some cream sauces I've had in the past. Plus, the pasta itself had a really nice bite to it. Much more than I can say about any pasta that I've bought from the supermarket and cooked up at home...
Wild berry cheesecake and chocolate mousse
Most of the dinner party stopped there, but our side of the table couldn't leave without sampling dessert. A surprising number of people I know aren't keen on chocolate, but personally? I could eat it all day if it weren't for my stupid conscience! Whipped cream isn't something I'm usually keen on, but that mousse was so darn good. It was just how it should be - packed with chocolatey flavour, but still light and airy at the same time.
Anyway, that's all for now. Once again I'm procrastinating from an essay that I barely know how to write, so I guess I'll be needing as much luck as possible to get me through this torture... that being said, thanks for reading and I'll see you again soon!
