But seriously, dear readers, I like Tyler’s realistic-but-tasty recipes. That means he’s showing us how to make dishes that can taste great while keeping it simple. For example, here’s his Fettucine Diablo recipe which I think would be another great recipe for a date:

You’ll need:

  • Olive oil
  • A few cloves of finely minced garlic
  • 1-2 tsp. red chili pepper flakes
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • “Cracked” olives (make sure they’re pitted)…you should be able to find this at a grocery deli
  • Fresh basil leaves (you could get away with dried basil flakes if you’re in a rush but fresh herbs always get noticed
  • 2 cans peeled tomatoes – they look like the bigger cans
  • A couple bay leaves
  • 1 lb. fettucine
  • ricotta for garnish (he uses a shreddable one, not the pasty type in tubs)
  • salt for the water that will be cooking the pasta

Hope you can make it to the event to get additional recipes and insights from this guy!
