Chocolate, wine, and pasta for two.

[pasta]

Otherwise known as “whore’s pasta,” Spaghetti Puttanesca is an, um, satisfying, rich meal with enough carbs to keep you going all night long. PackIt Gourmet’s Market Pasta Puttanesca ($9.50 for two servings, packitgourmet.com) strays a bit from the traditional recipe (typically a briny tomato with garlic, anchovies, capers and olives), but it tastes damn good and is a snap to prepare.

Splurge on a decent bottle and decant it into Sea To Summit’s 2-liter Pack Tap ($20, 3.8 oz., seatosummit.com), a soft-sided but bomber beverage bag with a built-in spout for easy pouring.

Wine just tastes better when it’s sipped from a legit glass, not your dirty coffee cup, so grab a few of GSI Outdoors Stemless Wine Glasses ($6, 2.2 oz., gsioutdoors.com). They’re made from BPA-free polyester resin for safe packing, and the squat shape means you’re less likely to slosh it on yourself or your mate.

Dark chocolate may or may not be an aphrodisiac, but Justin’s Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups (2-pack for $1.80, justinsnutbutter.com) will, at the very least, make you a hero after dinner is done. They taste that good!
