Ralph Pagano, Ingrid Hoffmann, and John Offerdahl Film Designing Spaces Episode

Miami's best culinary talent and two football greats got together yesterday to cook some winning game-day foods.

Alba Seaside Italian's Ralph Pagano welcomed Food Network's Ingrid Hoffmann, former Miami Dolphins great (and restaurateur) John Offerdahl, and Indiana Colts player Ahmad Bradshaw to film a special "Big Game" episode of Designing Spaces.

The chefs led the players through some easy recipes, perfect for a Super Bowl party, including chicken flautas, garlic chicken potato casserole, Philly cheesesteak fondue, and queso fundido.

Pagano, a devout football fan himself, told Short Order: "This experience has been fantastic. John Offerdahl tackled me for real, and Ingrid tackled me with flavor!"

The Designing Spaces "Big Game" special with Pagano, Hoffmann, Offerdahl, and Bradshaw will air January 24 and 31 on Lifetime. Visit designingspaces.tv for broadcast times.
