My MOH’s wedding present was an amazing gift basket from Harry and David…and so I set about making an Italian feast of sun-dried tomato flatbread and tri-color angel hair with an amazing pasta sauce that I enhanced with turkey meatballs.

It was such an easy basket … It came with high quality evoo which will last me a while.

The mix for flatbread which included yeast and only needed 30 minutes to rise, coupled with the bottled bruschetta topping, made an excellent first course.

The tricolor angel hair claimed it needed 45 seconds to cook… But I ended up cooking it for several minutes. Maybe that’s a crazy thing to do if you’re a die hard Italian , but I’m not 🙂

The bottled sauce was yummy. I didn’t change it at all, just heated meatballs with it.

The most amazing shortbread cookies were provided for dessert … MTT asked me why I never made cookies that good… Now I need to search for a Great vanilla shortbread recipe to compete with Harry and David!

The basket also has a risotto mix … Haven’t made it yet because MTT doesn’t like risotto … But one day when we aren’t newly weds I will make it anyway!
