(Subtitled: Who’s going to get lucky tonight?)

When I was young and first out on my own, payday could sometimes take forever
.
My favourite party trick to fill my tummy when the cupboards were bare, was to cook up some pasta (because there is always a bag of pasta, right?) and stir tomato sauce through it
.
Uh huh. Even then, I was a culinary genius, lol
.
Well this recipe is going to rock your freaking world because it’s almost as simple as my famous tomato sauce spaghetti
.
The perfect last minute date night meal, especially if you want to extend date night to breakfast
.
It takes zero cooking skill. If you can boil water, you can make this recipe
 
And it is crazy delicious!
.
I highly recommend grabbing a couple of really good quality bottles of Shiraz, like this incredible one from my friends over at Gomersal Wines, and keeping them tucked in your cupboard for a date night emergency
 
The better quality your wine is, the better your dish will taste – trust me on this one
.
Now, go and try this for yourself and get back to me
.
Is it better than tomato sauce spaghetti?
.
Enjoy!
