Valentine Pasta Dinner

Hello. Welcome to Valentines day season 2012!  I have only been blogging for about a year now, and I have decided that Valentines day is by far my favorite time of the blogging year! Its all about the love people!

This is the first post for 2012's " Valentines day food extravaganza!" I have been brainstorming Valentines day food for some time!

If you have any fun Valentines day food that you would like me to share with my followers and Facebook followers, please e-mail Makethebestcrafts@gmail.com.  I also require that you like us on Facebook. 

I know I don't have the most followers in the world, but I hope this can be fun for everyone.  I am looking for submissions of " out of the box" Valentines day food. 

The point of this, is to think healthy.  Families can still celebrate valentines day without loading up on candy and cakes.

I will start with my Valentines day pasta dinner.

This is a simple dipping plate with Olive oil and a heart made with tomato paste ( tomato paste that comes in a tube). I got inspired for this Valentines day appetizer, when recalled a visit to" Little Ital"y in New York City.   My husband and I  received our bread dipping plate it had olive oil and tomato paste mixed together.  We both love it!

I purchased this heart cookie cutter set at Hobby Lobby to use for my Valentine pasta dish.

I cut a zuccini with the two smaller cookie cutters to make them look like hearts. Cute. Right?

I also cut a few hearts out of a red pepper. ( although this didn't go with the same ease as the zuccini).

I sauted the veggies in some olive oil. 

I threw them over pasta with a white sauce. 

Wa la!

Easy Valentines day pasta dinner!
