Here’s an idea for the ultimate Valentine Pasta Recipe. Combine a bunch of ingredients considered to be aphrodisiac, all in one dish: arugula, almonds, asparagus, avocado, basil, broccoli rabe, carrots, fennel, garlic, ginger, pinenuts. I certainly have used each of these ingredients with pasta, but never all together. It will be very, very interesting to see what happens!
Looking through my archives of recipes, I did notice that I made a pasta dish using arugula, basil, broccoli rabe, pinenuts, roasted corn and cherry tomatoes with our new Papparadelle Pasta. It doesn’t incorporate all of the aphrodisiacs, but it’s a good start.
