The romantic, seductive stuff…

If you’re considering skipping on the garlic in this yummy, but very simple recipe then hang on a minute! We know it can potentially be a bit stinky, and it might not sound like the best start to a romantic evening, but garlic has long had a reputation as an aphrodisiac. And this is connected with its classification as a “hot” herb. It works by increasing the blood flow around the body meaning it gets to the bits it needs to even quicker. This helps to make both your sensitive bits even more sensitive and it’s been thought to help you get an erection more easily!

Garlic Ham Fettuccine Main Course Recipe Description:

Prep time: 5

Cook time: 20

The sauce will keep for quite a while, warm on the stove top, so there’s no need for you hurry or do any kitchen based flapping about! Simply toss the sauce together with the hot pasta just before serving.

  • 1/8 teaspoon thyme, optional
  • 6 oz. fettuccine

  9. Then pour over the spaghetti and stir to combine.
