Adrienne & Company Cafe and Bakery offers a recipe for a romantic dinner

Posted: Updated:

Romance is in the air, and if you ask Italians, that smell includes garlic. Bernie Pasquantino from Adrienne and Company Cafe and Bakery has easy recipes for gnocchi and cannoli that he says any guy can make.

Like many cooks, Bernie did his best at giving us his recipe. But some of this is subject to taste and personal preference.


2 cups all purpose flour

pinch of salt

Mix ingredients.

Roll into balls.

Roll into a strip and cut gnocchi.

Drop in boiling water for 2-3 minutes until they float.

Tomato Sauce

1 clove garlic

1 small onion

1 large can or 2 small cans of diced tomatoes

1/4 cup red wine




Sweat garlic and onions in a small amount of olive oil in a skillet.

Add remaining ingredients.

1 pound marcipone cheese

6 cups powdered sugar
