This is the perfect dish for a lovely meal for two. It's simple and really fun to make together. I love making this with my boyfriend and it always reminds me of him. 
I know it doesn't seem like the most romantic dish but it kind of is. It's great if you want to have a kind of romantic dinner and enjoy it with a bottle of wine (even though I don't like wine too much) or if you want to just have a night in and watch some films and chill. It's an elegant dish but still very relaxed if you want. 

Lovely Pasta Bake
for two (or more)
250 g tomato sauce
1 glove of garlic
2 slices of streaky bacon
1/2 courgette (grated)
1 mozzarella

To make it quick, simply start by cooking the pasta.

While it's cooking, you can grate the courgette and chop
all the other ingredients into tiny pieces.
Get a pan and heat it and add the bacon for it
to get crispy. Add the garlic and stir fry for
a bit (make sure the garlic doesn't get brown).
Then add the tomato sauce and some salt to taste.
Set it aside and preheat the oven to 180°C.

When the pasta is done, mix the sauce with the pasta
and add the courgette (you don't want to add it
earlier for it to stay as fresh as possible).

Pour it all in an oven proof dish and garnish with
slices of mozzarella.
put in the oven for about 10 minutes and serve hot.

you can garnish it with some parmesan cheese.

Pasta bakes are unbeatable in the cold weather :)
