Need ideas for date nights at home? Make an easy dinner with Bertoli meals for two and set a gorgeous table for an easy romantic date night at home.
Date nights are an important part of marriage. It's a time to set aside for just the two of you and connect. Date night is my favorite night of the week. Or maybe month? We try to set aside one night a week for Date Night, but it can be difficult (and expensive) to get out once a week. Instead, I try to plan a date night at home on the weeks we can't go out.
Date night at home can be as simple or elaborate as you want. On our first date my husband took me to an Italian restaurant so an Italian date night at home is always a fun way to talk about our past and our future. A pretty table isn't necessary, but it helps to set the mood and it's just fun to set up.
One of the truest pleasures of date night is no cooking or cleaning. For a date night at home, I'm going to have to cook, but there's no reason to make it hard. Bertoli's Classic Meals for Two are perfect for a date night at home. This Italian date night features Bertoli's Ricotta and Lobster Ravioli because my husband loves lobster. A simple green salad and some bread are all that is needed to complete this easy meal. Bertoli's mantra is “Don't just eat – MANGIA!” and this meal is just that. The perfect way to spend quality time with someone you love over delicious food.
