Brie Napoleon with Pomegranate Compote

Need a fancy appetizer for your Valentine’s evening in? Have I got a dish for you!

Brie Napoleon with Pomegranate Compote

Hop on over and check out my guest post on Cooking Planit’s blog today. I was able to make a delicious savory-sweet Brie Napoleon with Pomegranate Compote and a simple pasta dinner all in about 45 minutes. I’m not saying it was a fun and relaxing 45 minutes, but it can be done.

My adapted recipe for the pomegranate compote is below, but check out the recipe on Cooking Planit for the Napoleon itself, and for some adept help at planning your Valentine’s Day dinner. There’s a delicious ricotta and pea ravioli with creamy tomato sauce that I am also yearning to try!
