Night menu before exams


The night before maturity is an important moment to share. Here is the perfect menu to reassure, pamper and relax a little

"Night of tears and prayers, mathematics will never be my job." Antonello Venditti has crystallized the emotions of the night before the exams in a song capable of telling the mixture of fear, emotion, enthusiasm and tension that every boy experiences the night before maturity. IS how to prepare with them, with a light, tasty and fresh dinner that does not weigh them down with too many calories, but that at the same time knows how to distract them gratifying eyes and palate?

Fish, fruit and vegetables are recommended for a menu low in calories and fat, but often do not arouse the enthusiasm of the boys who tend instead to ask for the most comforting of the pizzas, a well-padded sandwich to eat on the books during the last desperate review or a pasta with tomatoes, looking for those cuddles that will not have the courage to ask out loud. And so we thought of a light dinner, but at the same time full of references to comfort food, which does not suffer from heat and does not engage us in a long digestion, but which knows how to make the mature students feel safe thanks to a journey through flavors and colors that will lighten the tension of dinner.

It starts with a simple and tasty appetizer: i perini on spicy bread bruschetta and i nachos with chopped tomatoes, anchovies and black olives. These dishes are perfect for starting dinner with appetizers and chatter, opening to other dishes in a summer and glamorous atmosphere that puts you in a good mood. The inevitable pasta is proposed in summer version with the recipe of the lightest cold pasta with ricotta pesto.
From here on it's time to cuddles: the Three-story Club Sandwich with chicken and avocado will know how to amaze and entertain the kids and to finish off in style, the chocolate biscuit with coconut ice cream which closes within itself the best a maturing can ask of a dessert. Chocolate, biscuit and ice cream come together in a fresh and fun dessert, perfect to close the dinner with sweetness and a few less thoughts.

Good luck!
