Portobello Mushroom Israeli Couscous with Truffle Goat Cheese Recipe

Potatoes, rice or pasta typically serve as the starch in our daily meals, but when it's time for a change I turn to Israeli couscous. Like all starches, it's a versatile foundation upon which you can build any combination of flavors.

In this recipe, I cooked Israeli couscous with Portobello mushrooms, basil tomato sauce, arugula and truffle-flavored goat cheese. It can be served as a side dish, or as a main course for vegetarians. Either way, its looks will catch your eye and the taste won't disappoint.

Cacio E Pepe Recipe

When it comes to pasta dishes, Romans are experts. With only a few ingredients, they are able to produce incredible creations. Cacio e pepe is a perfect example. Spaghetti is tossed in a simple, creamy Pecorino Romano and black pepper sauce. The level of flavor achieved with only a handful of ingredients is mind-boggling.

My husband Lulu and I recently took a very romantic trip to Rome, Italy, so I thought it would be nice to share some pictures. The city is very small (a few square miles) and I felt like we walked every square inch. The upside is that we were able to try a lot of restaurants all over the city. We discovered a lovely one called Mario's, located on a small street behind the Roman Ruins. It doesn't attract a lot of tourists because of its off-the-beaten-path location, but we noticed a lot of locals. We were so impressed by the quality of the food that after trying several other average restaurants, we ended up eating at Mario's for the rest of the trip.

Lulu and I spent only a few days in Rome and then returned to Paris, where I tried to replicate the delicious pasta dish. To make it more luxurious, I added a few pieces of black truffle I found in an open air market. Lulu loved it!

Valentine's Day is coming soon, and if you want to surprise your Valentine with a simple yet delicious dish, you should consider cacio e pepe. If you can’t take your love to Rome this Valentine’s Day, it’s a great way to bring a touch of Rome to your love!
