Al Dente! A Plate of Love



   It was our first year anniversary and I am thinking of doing something special for my hubby. At first, I decided to surprise him with a dinner in a restaurant. I tried to call Sheridan Hotel here in Iloilo in order to ask if they do romantic dinner for two. They said they can do it in a hut near their infinity pool. I describe to them what I wanted to happen. I told them that I wanted the place to be private. I even asked them to scatter petals of roses around the table and of course few candles to make it more romantic. I am already convinced to do it on our anniversary day. Their cuisine is also alluring that really fits for a romantic dinner yet my plan wasn’t pursued due to some reasons.

   Therefore I kept on thinking of other ways in order to delight my hubby. Going out on our anniversary day was not an option anymore since I can’t leave my baby at home even if he has his nanny. So I thought of ways on how to surprise him at home… I suddenly remember his favorite pasta, the baked lasagna. I haven’t tried making one but I am willing to try and give the best of it since I know that it will surely impress my hubby. Hence, I searched for a recipe that I can just easily follow.

   I got my recipe for baked lasagna in http://panlasangpinoy.com/. Their recipe is easy yet very delicious. When my hubby tasted it, he really said that it is indeed his favorite Italian casserole dish.
