Ever feel like you have deserve a treat of andante pasta, delicious ice cream sponge desserts (as below), and some creamy nibbles?

Straight after a tiring day of college, a friend and I headed straight for Prezzo, Harborne and were immediately buzzing from the modern decor in the dominating clock tower of the high street. Greeted by the warmth of light and chatter in Prezzo, even the giggles of families enjoying a quality meal after exhausting days at work, we couldn’t wait to get tucked in!

With an online student voucher on hand, who wouldn’t experiment with the plush crab cakes (above), garlic risotto (below) and creamy Pomodoro, all with the bustling view of Harborne High street, (although Prezzo also accommodates for those wishing for a more sophisticated view of the “square”).

Prezzo seems fit for many, whether a romantic date, family celebration, or student stress relief, tables of two or booths of 8 can be booked here: go treat yourself with dazzling decor and smiling staff. For a good price, why not indulge away from the usual pizza express (well that’s what I needed anyway)!

Stuffed Pepper Recipe Trial (Sardegna twist)

Follow my blog with bloglovin

Having just spent a week in Sardegna, Italy, I cooked this Mediterranean Stuffed Pepper Recipe, (click words for link to recipe) with a Sardegna twist (photo above).

Fregola pasta (originated from Sardegna) replaced the cous cous, which was meant to be inside the lightly fried, juicy peppers; subtle tasting, soft mozarella complimented the dish, despite bitter feta cheese having been recommended in the recipe: the olives provided the required sourness instead.

I would use this dish to accompany a refreshing side salad, or as a main dinner dish, depending on the size of peppers purchased; as you can see, the ones we bought were rather large! Two halves were perfect for a single portion.

It’s a simple, quickly prepared dish. A combination of a variety of textures, colours and tastes; a dish which is very adaptable to accomodate different tastes. Highly advise you to consume under the blissful summer sun, either on holiday or in the comfort of your own home.
