Capellini Monalisa (Video)


A few days ago, my family and I went to a fantastic Portuguese restaurant and absolutely loved the food, atmosphere, and service. So I had to try my hardest to recreate the moment minus the great service. When I’m the cook and the waitress, my family will get what they get.

I know I’m not getting a tip, so……

But I guess their smiling faces are enough for me, which I received while they chomped on my take on Capellini Monalisa.

Below I have a short tutorial on how to make this dish. And after you watch it, please give me a thumbs up, subscribe, and please ask me any questions that you may have.
