Pasta is the food of love. Many people make pasta when they want to cook a romantic meal for a partner. It even makes an appearance in Disney’s Lady in the Tramp, which is one of the most iconic food film moments. If sharing a dish leads to a kiss, then it’s perfect in Valentine’s Day dinner menu. However, spaghetti can get quite messy and it’s not very romantic to have a Bolognese mustache. Instead, enjoy this Ricotta and Crispy Parmesan Raviolo, it’s creamy and delicious and if you make it yourself, will win you serious partner points!
