Walnut Marsala Cream Sauce for Pasta Recipe

Tossing pasta in tomato sauce is probably what I make most often but today I wanted to prepare something out of the ordinary. I had ready-made pumpkin ravioli pasta for our upcoming Fall holidays and prepared a walnut marsala cream sauce. 

The sauce revolved around 3 main flavorings: finely chopped (almost powdered) walnuts, marsala wine and cream top. Once I tossed the ravioli in a bit of oil to give them a nice texture, I poured the decadent pasta sauce over the pumpkin ravioli. Give this sauce a try you won't be using regular tomato sauce for a while!

Veal Scallopini with Garlic Cream Sauce (Escalope de Veau Marsala) Recipe

If you're looking for Valentine's Day dinner menu ideas, Escalope de Veau, sauce au vin Marsala should definitely be on your list. Veal steaks are slightly pounded, dredged in flour and pan-seared until golden. The real key to this dish is the rich and creamy garlic sauce made with Marsala wine. I know, garlic on Valentine's Day seems odd. But food that tastes great will set the mood, and what doesn't taste better with garlic?

I paired the veal with ratatouille, but if you'd prefer a starch, mashed sweet potatoes would make a great choice. The most important thing when preparing a romantic meal is to keep it simple. You don't want to spend the entire evening in the kitchen! Veal scallopini is a safe bet, brings the "wow" factor, and is delicious to boot.

** Note: I've gotten some questions about the thickness of the meat. In France, escalope de veau is usually at least 1-inch thick. I think that Americans are more familiar with the Italian version of the dish where the veal is pounded very thin.
