Ego's Thank You Dinner

dinner%20party%20flower%20arrangement.jpg

Tony was Ego's dog sitter during our last week in Italy. Ego and I decided to invite Tony for dinner, as he LOVES Italian food. Our friends Diana and Walt joined in the fun. We began with prosecco before moving to the dining room. The first course was a trio of fresh, seasonal antipasti: Tuscan melon with prosciutto, a fig with gorgonzola and honey on a grape leaf, and a mini "Caprese on a skewer".

Our pasta course was a simple one that everyone loved: Pasta with caramelized onions, broccolini, and sausage with red pepper flakes.

Our entree was a stuffed pork roast, cheesy-sage polenta, and baby carrots with honey and thyme.

We had a delightful time at dinner with LOTS of food and wine, and then watched a movie of our recent Umbria trip.
