1 cup celery (chopped)
1 cup sliced mushrooms
1 (28 ounce) can pasta sauce (your favorite)
1/2 cup vinegar
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup water
salt & pepper
1 lb rigatoni pasta

1.In a medium size pot, brown the chicken in the olive oil until browned on all sides.

2.Add the remaining ingredients except for the capers and simmer for about 1 hour.

3.Add the capers and cook slowly for an additional 10 minutes.

    Prawn Cocktail is really easy starter, garnished with avocado and lettuce.

    Spaghetti Bol is very quick and easy, spice it up with chopped chilli’s and a splash of red wine.

    Have a fruit kebab – forget eating it at the table… take it to bed with whipped cream, chocolate/strawberry sauce and a glass of champagne!

    Spag Bol or Lasagne are really easy or perhaps buy something from the Ready to Cook ranges in M&S and Sainsburys (minimal preparation) and maybe wear his favourite negligee!

    the way to a man’s heart is with a big, juicy, bloody t-bone steak with chips and mushrooms, washed down with a decent red wine.
