Italian twist

For my birthday, my husband took me to a small restaurant near where we live: Giorgio’s Italian Restaurant. It all began with this little house salad…leaps and bounds above a standard iceburg-based boring salad, this one had pine nuts and freshly sliced asiago cheese and was drizzled with a pleasant vinegar concoction. Simple but satisfying. And then came the entree: fried cheese ravioli. Fried? you ask? Why yes, fried. I’ll admit to being somewhat afraid right before digging in, but once I tasted it I was sold — this odd twist on a classic Italian dish was actually very good! Throw in the house-made marinara sauce and you have what I had: a hearty Italian treat.
