My indulgent salmon linguine, has no respect for calorie counters, so you folks will have to sacrifice if you want to partake in this dish.  

My date loves this meal, so I would suggest you give it a try.  You could definitely makes this on date night at your place, it’s so easy to bring together and you’ll look like a gourmet.

This dish needs white wine to complement it.  You can feed each other and ply your date with wine.
