The other day, my husband and I had a conversation about cooking. He asked me what I thought I would be doing – or how my life would be different – if I didn’t like cooking. Obviously, my life would be quite different since this is what I do for a living. And I can’t imagine doing anything different right now.

He then went on to tell me that he thought I was the best cook that he knew. He certainly knows the way to my heart – by giving me such a great compliment! So what did I do? I know the best way to his heart is through his stomach, so I made him pasta. Rich, creamy pasta – because that is what he likes the best.

Of course – since there was so much pressure with being the best cook that he knows and all, :), I totally ended up getting distracted and cooking my sauce down too much. But if you just gently heat it, you’ll be just fine. This is a great meal for an at-home date night. And a great way to tell that special someone that you love them!
