Spaghetti

If you're a slurper, noodle dishes might not impress your dinner date. Plus, there's the chance that the sauce might stain your dressy duds. Pasta lovers should go for types of pasta that are easier to eat, like farfalle, macaroni or orecchiette.

Spinach

Greens are almost always the healthier choice, but on Valentine’s Day, it might be worth forgoing spinach and opting for a clean smile instead!

Corn

It’s hard not to get corn stuck in your teeth. Save the cob for the Fourth of July!

Bolognese
