There is a saying that goes, “The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach,” but do know that some women out there do love their food too. So if you’re thinking of something impressive to whip up yet affordable, I’ve got a few quick and easy dishes that will be sure to win you a second date.

1. Mince Bolognes 

Super Simple Spaghetti Bolognese - A delicious and quick meal

It is a quick, easy and super tasty dish. Just get a packet of spaghetti or fettuccine pasta, some mince, and a jar of Raguletto and you’ll be good to go. To add a bit of razzle dazzle to it, make some garlic bread on the side.

2. Rourou and lambneck
