We all know the scene: sweet, bashful cocker spaniel and rough and tough mutt find love in a climatic cinematic moment over a bowl of spaghetti and meatballs. Romantic music sets the mood as uptown girl falls head over heels for downtown boy while a lone strand of spaghetti connects them across the table. Meet Lady and the Tramp.
You and your sweetheart can stir up amorous feelings of your own. You need a cobble-stoned alleyway, a wine barrel table with a white and red cloth, laundry drying in the moonlight between buildings, and a candle casting shadows across your shared meal. You can go the extra mile and find a happy chef or two to play a romantic ditty to really set the stage.
If this seems like a lot of work to you, there is an easier way.
