What can be more romantic on Valentine’s Day than sharing a special home cooked meal with your sweetie.

For those of you not making reservations for Valentine’s Day I thought I would compile some elegant yet simple skinny dishes your sweetie will enjoy, and you won’t be spending hours in the kitchen. Hope you enjoy!!

Crock Pot Bolognese
Because you don’t want to spend your Valentine’s Day cooking, let the crock pot work for you! Vegans can use veggie crumbles instead of beef.

Chicken Rollatini with Spinach alla Parmigiana
If it’s chicken your significant other craves, you can’t go wrong with this simple yet elegant dish.

This fabulous Herb Crusted Rib Eye Roast is coated with sour cream, horseradish, herbs de provence and breadcrumbs, perfect for the beef lover in your house!

For a quick seafood option, try the Angel Hair Pasta with Shrimp and Tomato Sauce. The shrimp is cooked with tomatoes, a touch of cream, white wine and a hint of lemon. The whole dish takes under 20 minutes to make and it’s delicious.

And what’s a Valentine’s Day without a sweet ending. Here are some great options…

  1. Thank you so much for posting these recipes! My fiance wanted to cook a three-course meal to celebrate Valentine's Day. He knows how much I love your blog and chose all the recipes from your site – Skinny Spinach and Bacon Stuffed Mushrooms, Roasted Asparagus, Blackened Salmon with Mango Salsa, and my personal favorite, Homemade Skinny Chocolate Cake. All the recipes were great, thanks!

  6. I made the Skinny Chocolate Cake in a Bundt pan for dessert tonight and it was awesome! I am going to have to give away the leftovers though- even skinny chocolate cake is too tempting to leave sitting around the house.

  7. Gina,
    Your recipes are so fabulous!! My kids ask for "skinnytaste" recipes for dinner! What else is there?? We had the shrimp and chocolate cake, my husband made it all! So yummy!! Thanks again for putting it all together, there have been no complaints, except when I am not making one of your recipes! 🙂 K

  8. Thanks Gina,
    I just made Thai Chicken with Pineapple for my family valentine dinner. It was great!!! I have been cooking your meals for the past 7 days and each one has been perfect. The whole family loves them.

  11. I would be SO happy to feast on any of those for VDay dinner! I'm thinking I'll make stuffed red bell peppers for my fiance and I- they remind me of hearts ;P

  12. I made your Super Moist Low Fat Chocolate Cupcakes with the white frosting (tinted pink with food dye) for my Valentine's Day treats! They were so easy to make, look amazing and are a huge hit!

  13. Yum! We're doing angel hair pasta and tomato sauce. But instead of shrimp (since the hubby is a vegetarian) we're doing whole button mushrooms! And I'm also going to try roasted brussel sprouts. Yum! And, I'm makin chocolate brownies for dessert. 🙂 Happy Valentine's Day y'all! Thanks again Gina for the recipes!

  14. Everything looks fantastc! I need to scope out all the recipes! I still don't know what I'm making for dinner tonight!

  15. We're going the skinny strawberry fool route. it's a favorite around here and soooooo easy!

  16. Didnt know what I was going to cook for dinner; now the guesswork has been done for me – going to the freezer to do my 'shopping'- that will determine which of your choices will appear on my table tonite.
