Balsamic Tuna with Italian Slaw
Put your significant other (SO) in charge of setting the table or opening the wine—since this dish takes only 20 minutes to make, you don’t really need much extra help!

Beef Filet with Blue Cheese Butter
Divide and conquer! While you prepare the blue cheese butter, ask your SO to quarter and season the potatoes.
A beef and blue cheese combo is rich—lighten it up with a bright and bubbly prosecco. Try 90+ Cellars, Santa Margherita or La Marca

Miso-Sugar Pork with Sesame Green Beans
Assign the rice to your SO. If they’re not the cooking type, opt for pre-cooked packets that go from microwave to table in only 90 seconds.
The pork’s sweet-and-salty Asian glaze stands up well to a light-bodied lager. Try Sapporo, Narragansett or Peroni.

Green and White Lasagna
Have your SO throw together a salad while you make the main. Even better: Assemble lasagna the night before and you just bought extra time to talk about your day.
Complement creamy lasagna with the light acidity of a pinot noir. Try Jacob’s Creek, Bread & Butter or Bonterra.
