Garlic Bread & Tiramisu: Spaghetti Sidekicks

How can you make a perfect meal even more delicious? By sandwiching it between cheesy, buttery garlic bread and incredibly rich tiramisu.

During my visit home last weekend, I attended Spaghetti School (courtesy of Mama B). I should've known that Mama had a few other tricks up her sleeve...after all, she always does! She had all of the ingredients for my favorite Garlic Bread. We followed the recipe then added our own flair by sticking the open-faced halves of bread under the broiler after topping them with parmesan cheese. 

She also had a recipe for Whipped-Up Chocolate Ricotta Tiramisu (we used Kahlua instead of cognac, but otherwise followed the recipe as is). She mixed the creamy ingredients while I prepared the ladyfingers and layered them into pretty glasses.

Out of all the tiramisus I've ever eaten (all of them from restaurants, mind you, none of them homemade), this was the best one. Homemade, easy, and so scrumptious! Petite chocolate morsels suspended in fluffy clouds of mascarpone and ricotta, resting upon coffee-soaked sponginess...heavenly!

It's not very often that the sidekicks are as popular as the hero, but these dishes are delicious enough to save the day on their own. The next time you're in the mood for Italian, give them a try!

Happy Searching!
