Pasta ai Quattro Formaggi I included this recipe in the Black Heels book because it’s one of the first (disastrous) things I cooked for Marlboro Man when we were dating. It was my favorite pasta dish from my favorite restaurant in all of Los Angeles: Intermezzo in West Hollywood. Intermezzo was where my friends and I would go when we felt as though we’d earned a nice dinner out after studying for a whole hour or so…and it’s where we’d have our parents take us to dinner when they’d come visit us at school. Intermezzo was a dreamy, wonderful place with an outdoor covered patio peppered with trees and tiny white lights. The dish I ordered with the most frequency was angel hair with four cheeses. Through the years, I’ve improved my technique and still make Pasta ai Quattro Formaggi anytime I need a taste of the L.A. days…or whenever I need a good, rich carb dish next to a juicy fillet or rib-eye. Make this for your sweetie on Valentine’s Day. It will light up your life. First, grate up four cheeses. Get it? Ingredients

Characteristics of a blocked heart chakra include fear of rejection, feeling unworthy of love or loving too much. If there is blockage in the heart chakra, you may feel unworthy of love and skeptical of anyone who wants to love you (and paranoid that you will wind up hurt, yet again), or your love relationships may be completely co-dependent.

If this chakra is imbalanced in some way it means that somewhere along the line, there has been a disruption in your attitude and understanding of love.
