OK, you and I both know that Valentine's Day can be daunting.  After a day of running around after the kids, working, household chores.....is it any wonder that most couples decide not to bother?   

And with Valentine's Day falling midweek this year, it becomes even more of a reason to just pretend it's not happening.  

But I also know this kind of attitude is the start of couple's taking each other for granted. The trick is not to pick hugely intricate dishes for your other half. Not only does this take away your time and effort worries, your husband or boyfriend would also much prefer to spend Valentines with you (instead of looking at the back of your head as you slave away at the stove!)

So this week, Im going to show you quick Valentines dishes that look far more impressive in comparison to actual effort. Theyll certainly impress my husband, and Im sure theyll impress your Valentine too!

Today, a lovely 'heart-shaped' pasta salad.

Your Ingredients:


3 thinly sliced green onions  

350g of heart shaped pasta  

415g can of tuna, flaked and drained of liquid  

250g of halved cherry tomatoes  

75g of baby spinach leaves  

For the dressing  

1/2 cup of Greek style yoghurt  

1/2 cup of light whole egg mayonnaise  

2 tbsp of lemon juice  

2 tbsp of finely chopped fresh dill sprigs  

2 tbsp of chopped and rinsed capers

How to make your Salmon and Heart Shaped Pasta Salad:

First thing you should do is fill a large saucepan with water and bring it to a boil. You then cook your heart shaped pasta following the cooking instructions found on its packaging.

Once the pasta is cooked, rinse it in cold water and place in a clean bowl.

You then add in your spinach, tomatoes, green onions and salmon and toss.

How to make your dressing:

Go and get a clean bowl and combine your lemon juice, mayonnaise, yoghurt, capers and dill.

You then season this with salt and pepper.  

How to serve:

Place as much pasta as you want on 2 plates.

Get a spoonful of your dressing and place it on top of your pasta.  

Serve it up to your Valentine with the sweetest of smiles and a knowing wink!

A quick question, salmon – can i use any kind, like smoked or cooked? Can other type of fish to be used instead?
Thank you and best regards, Darius!

Jessica Brown said: Great spatula set!

This set of spatulas is very nice. Great quality, and I love that they are heat resistant! I would definitely recommend purchasing!

Shannon said: Great Basic for any kitchen!

Previously I had a hand held one and it made it so much more difficult to use! This is way easier to use and can stand upright on its own. It's a Basic you need in any kitchen and I have no complaints.

Ian said: Can't go wrong with these!

You can't go wrong with these tongs for the kitchen. It's great since they have the lever at the top that allows them to stay closed while in my kitchen drawer. Previous ones I had didn't and it was a nightmare just from how much space they would take up! Also, since they have silicon at the bottom it doesn't scratch my pans! Very happy!

Jeannie said: Wonderful press

This is such an awesome press!! It has cut my prep time in half. It is so easy to use and doesn't stick.

NA said: Grips well in the hand

Solid. It grips well in the hand.
