Whats Cookin' Good Lookin': Date Night Dinner

My boo and I often like to have low key date nights which usually includes dinner and a movie at home. I like to consider myself to be adventurous when it comes to food but my boo not so much. Its hard to feed this guy when he loves: tacos, hamburgers, spaghetti, and pizza. To me that is boring and not really healthy. Sometimes it can be hard to get a guy to eat vegetables too! So in an effort to come to some kind of compromise I made a pasta dish with a little more flavor and ingredients than usual.

"Date Night Pasta"

The finished product

Pasta and Alfredo Sauce

In the oven

Chop these ingredients and Sauteed:
Smoked Sausage
Fresh Spinach
Bell Peppers
Fresh Minced Garlic
Olive Oil

Add in:
1 Jar Pasta Sauce
~ 1 cup Alfredo Sauce (I like my sauce to be reddish or pink, you can do whatever you like)
Mozzarella Cheese 2-3 cups? (Save some to sprinkle on the top)

Boil and Add in: Pasta Noodles - Rigatoni 16oz

  • Mix all the ingredients together, pour into a casserole dish, sprinkle with cheese on top and bake for 15-20 minutes on 350 degrees.
Easy and so good! I can only eat this on special occasions because its so rich!

"Salad and Homemade salad dressing"  

Leaf lettuce
Broccoli Slaw
Red Bell Peppers

Apple Cider Vinegar
Raw Honey
Olive Oil
Red Pepper Flakes

I love this salad dressing so tasty and good for you; better than store bought. Each ingredient has wonderful benefits for your health.
