Male or Female, it doesn’t matter, we all love someone making us food on Valentines Day and to prove you don’t have to spend the day cooking, as I’m sure you will have other things to do (nod nod, wink wink) I’ve put this very simple lunch dish together in fifty minutes, which will have your loved one loving you for at least another six months AND telling their friends what a great person you are etc, I mean, brownie points or what?
Along with the very expensive ring / watch / flowers and card, what more could you want?
Heart shaped pasta with a buttery tomato and basil sauce.
Cook your pasta until al dente, add a splash of olive oil and set to one side
Add half a block of butter to a pan and melt, add a large white onion cut in half, a 400ml can of chopped tomatoes and simmer gently for around forty five minutes, remove and discard onion and check for seasoning.
Place your buttery tomato sauce on a plate, cut your pasta sheet in heart shapes and lay it on top of the sauce, top with more sauce and finish with a good parmesan sauce. Serve with a nice crusty bread.
