When it comes to the first date or the fortieth date, it’s hard to beat a chill, romantic night in with a home cooked meal. But what to cook? It can sometimes be intimidating, especially if you have a picky partner, but here are a few tasty, simple recipes for your date night meal.

Entrees

Spaghetti Carbonara

TOTAL COOK TIME: 30 minutes; yield 6 servings

  • 6 slices thick-cut bacon, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced fresh rosemary
  • 2 red jalapeno peppers, seeded and minced
  • 1/4 cup cognac or brandy (optional)
  • 12 ounces spaghetti
  • 3 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese, plus more for garnish
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated pecorino romano cheese
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • salt and ground pepper
  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.
  2. Combine the olive oil, bacon, jalapenos, garlic, rosemary, and 1/4 cup water in a large skillet.
  3. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until the water evaporates and the bacon crisps — about 12 minutes. Discard the garlic afterward.
  4. Add the cognac, if desired, and cook until it evaporates.
  5. Remove mixture from the heat and set aside 1/4 cup for garnish.
  6. Meanwhile, cook the spaghetti in the boiling water according to the label.
  7. Mix the eggs, cheeses, parsley and 1 teaspoon pepper in a bowl.
  8. Drain the pasta, reserving 1/4 cup cooking water.
  9. Return the skillet to medium-high heat. Add the pasta and toss until heated through, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from the heat.
  10. Whisk the reserved pasta water into the egg mixture, then quickly pour over the pasta in the skillet and toss to gently cook the eggs and make a creamy sauce.
  11. Garnish with the reserved bacon mixture and more parmesan.
