Dinner No. 37: January 3, 2016
January 5th, 2016 by Katekoster

This dinner was the first Sunday Night Dinner in 2016! We made lamb ragu pasta for our entree, but the main focus of the night was Banana Tarte Tatin with whipped cream. It was our first time making the Banana Tarte Tatin, and we were very pleased by the results. We also made an arugula salad with slightly cooked walnuts, goat cheese, and cranberries. The Banana Tarte Tatin was surprisingly sweet, so we recommend not adding to much sugar to the whipped cream. ┬áThe lamb ragu is pretty easy: just three main ingredients: ground lamb, onions, and chopped tomatoes (of course you need olive oil and salt and pepper….and grated cheese on top:).

The final meal: arugula salad and lamb ragu.  (Dessert was banana tarte tatin)
