Tossed Green Salad
Garlic Toast
Poached Salmon with Four Cheese Sauce
Rich Chocolate Mocha Mousse with Chocolate Zigzags

Garlic Toast
A quick and tasty recipe
Combine 2 tablespoons softened butter, 1 tablespoon shredded Parmesan cheese and 1 finely chopped clove garlic in a small bowl. Spread onto six French baguette slices. Broil for about 1 minute or until golden brown.

Poached Salmon with Four Cheese Sauce
Simple yet elegant, poached salmon is a dish which may be repared for any sophisticated occasion. Try poaching twice the amount of fish and serving it the next day over mixed lettuce for a cold salmon salad.


1 package (9 ounces) refrigerated Contadina Linguine, cooked, drained and kept warm
1 cup (10-ounce container) refrigerated Contadina Four Cheese Sauce, warmed
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup dry white wine or chicken broth
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 (6 ounces each) salmon fillets or steaks
2 tablespoons finely grated carrot (optional)
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley (optional)
Dill weed sprigs (optional)

Combine water, wine, salt and pepper in large skillet. Bring to a boil; add salmon. Reduce heat to low; cook, covered, for 8 to 10 minutes or until thickest part of salmon flakes easily when tested with fork.

Toss pasta with carrot and parsley; divide onto plates. Top with salmon. Spoon sauce over each serving; garnish with dill weed.

Makes 2 servings.

Rich Chocolate Mocha Mousse with Chocolate ZigZags
Unlike ordinary mousse, this dessert is especially rich and dense -- the ultimate for chocolate lovers. Serve topped with whipped cream and piped chocolate ZigZags. You'll detect a hint of coffee in the rich, creamy, so-easy-to-make mousse.

1 cup (6 ounces) NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels
3 tablespoons butter, cut into pieces (we recommend LAND O LAKES® Butter)
2 teaspoons TASTER’S CHOICE 100% Pure Instant Coffee
1 tablespoon hot water
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream

MICROWAVE morsels and butter in medium, microwave-safe bowl on HIGH (100%) power for 1 minute; stir. Microwave at additional 10- to 20-second intervals, stirring until smooth. Dissolve coffee granules in hot water; stir into chocolate. Stir in vanilla extract; cool to room temperature. WHIP cream in small mixer bowl on high speed until stiff peaks form; fold into chocolate mixture. Spoon into tall glasses; chill for 1 hour or until set. Garnish as desired.

Directions for the ZigZags:
Place approximately 1/4 cup Nestle' Toll House Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels in heavy-duty plastic bag. Microwave on HIGH (100%) power for about 30 seconds; knead until smooth. Cut tiny corner from bag; squeeze a zigzag design onto waxed paper. Chill until firm. Use as garnish.
