The city has been so cold. At Bella NYC we are certainly welcoming the warmer temperatures! In the meantime, a fun idea is to create a cozy date-night at home. You can even watch a movie and create a pasta dish during the week or surprise your significant other with a tasty meal. The great thing about this idea is you can literally have a date and not have to worry about making it to work the following day. Jokes aside, here are some of our ideas on how to create an at home date experience. This is also a fun girls-night-in idea — gather your besties and watch “Eat Pray Love.”

Our favorite is “Lady and the Tramp.” So, we decided to make Spaghetti and Meatballs. You can add a crisp salad on the side and some garlic bread to complete the picture. Here are some movies that pair well for this special evening. Mangia!
