The first meal my husband ever cooked for me was a classic penne with marinara. I was 16, he was 19 and fast forward almost 12 years, we still enjoy penne pasta as a staple in our home. It’s my favourite cut of pasta, I absolutely love it. Having a date night is something I strive for at least two times a month, but heading out for an expensive dinner isn’t always in the budget. In that case, what I like to do is make a delicious pasta meal. Date nights bring on the nostalgia of my first home-cooked meal with my husband, and with that in mind I wanted to create something special for all the lovebirds who are looking for something simple and delicious to enjoy together.
