Our date night began in the kitchen. While homemade pasta sauce is delicious, it's also time consuming, so I did what I always do: modify a store bought sauce! (I'm sure there's an Italian grandmother screaming somewhere.)

Once everything was looking happy, I poured in a jar of pasta sauce, stirred everything up, and let it heat through - along with a few shakes of one of my favorite pasta seasonings.

In under 30 minutes we were sitting down to eat. (As a bonus, the price tag on dinner was about $3/plate instead of $15/plate at a restaurant!)

I'm really looking forward to Part 2 of date night. I've always liked running at night. There's something kind of magical about running when the rest of the world is sleeping (or out partying) - and it's even better when you get to share it with someone else!
