Everyone knows the slight panic that overcomes you when a friend announces his visit and you know that you have only one hour to prepare a meal. Obviously you are delighted to see him so you want to make an effort!
So what recipes to choose?
Here is the 1 hour express menu I decided on
* Pasta con Scampi e Zucchini
* Eton Mess
Plan of attack!
1) Prepare the garnish for the Bruschetta the day before and keep it in the fridge.
2) Lay the table.
3) During that one hour: Cut the strawberries and mix with a tablespoon of sugar to render them juicy. Store at room temperature for the best possible taste.
4) beat the whipped cream and keep in the refrigerator. It is perfect if it is still soft.
5) Finely cut the zucchini and cook with the scampi following the recipe
6) Heat the water for the pasta
7) Prepare the butter and Parmesan for the sauce
8) Roast the baguette slices in a pan and garnish the bruschetta according to the recipe
9) Cook noodles
10) Serve the bruschetta during this time
11) Mix the pasta with its sauce by adding butter and parmesan following the recipe and serve.
12) After the main course: crumble the meringue into small individual bowls, garnish with the whipped cream and the strawberries with their juice. Serve immediately!
What a nice evening !!!
