Dinner at Antonello's


A holiday weekend to South Coast Plaza (now our fourth year, and starting to feel like a tradition), often includes dinner at my favorite Orange County Italian restaurant, Antonello's. It is decorated to the max, with lights, wreaths and holiday greenery everywhere, There food is amazing, and again, this year I ordered the pasta pinwheels with pink and bechemel sauce. Two sheets of pasta (long like lasagna noodles) are spread with a fontina, prosciutto, ricotta filling, then rolled up into a spiral, and served with the two beautiful sauces. I was already full after Brad and I shared a calamari appetizer, so I barely made it through one spiral, but luckily, there was a fridge in our hotel room.


We decided to order one dessert for the four of us to share. Here was the best canoli I've ever tasted. (It's tucked back there behind the sauces, fruit, and spun sugar!)

What you spend on holiday shopping and baking could fund a third world country for months!

So happy to read about your holiday getaway. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE South Coast Plaza. It is dangerously close (One freeway exit away) from my Tues. Thurs. Italian language class. (any excuse to be in the "hood"). I'm making the Cipollini onion dish for my family Xmas party tonight.
Happy Holidays Palma!

2 sauces? Tomato and beschiamella?

Hmm - good thing JC doesn't know about my gazillion pounds of butter!
