SP and I were watching Lidia's Italy over the weekend and we saw her make a dish called Neapolitan Mac & Cheese. Everything about it looked good - the bacon, the onions, the garlic all cooked with pasta and potatoes with provolone cheese tossed in at the end. While I was cooking it smelled fantastic in the kitchen, the prep was easy and the final product looked quite enticing:
That is until I took my first bite. I'd only had provolone as a single slice on a sandwich so I had no idea how strong it was. Yowzer! I took a few bites trying to pick out the tomato, onion, bacon and potatoes but it was no use - the taste of the provolone overwhelmed everything else. SP could tell I didn't like it, which is a shame because he absolutely loved it. Then again, he's a fan of strong cheeses.
So this was my dinner instead:
SP, the loving husband that he is, ran out to Chik-Fil-A for me once he realized I wasn't a fan of the pasta.
Mmmm....nuggets. And sweet-n-sour sauce. And waffle fries. Yum!
