GETTYSBURG, Pa. — If you can't decide where to make a reservation for a romantic Valentine's Day dinner, consider your own dining room. 

Olivia's shared recipes for a sumptuous pasta dish and smooth martini.

The meal features a savory pan-seared portion of rockfish topped with a flavorful sauce of simmered tomato, veggies and okra, all served over a bed of fettuccini smothered in a creamy wine sauce with fresh spinach.

Finish off your romantic night in with an espresso martini to add some class and energy to the night.

1 tablespoon, extra virgin olive oil

Place a skillet on medium-high heat. Add the butters and extra virgin olive oil. Add the rockfish and season it. Pan sear the fillet for approximately three to four minutes and then remove it from heat.

1/2 pint, heirloom cherry tomatoes, halved

*all 3 finely chopped to approximately the same size

1 pound, fresh okra: cleaned, stem removed, cut into 1/2-inch wheels

2 tablespoons, extra virgin olive oil 

In a heavy bottom pan placed on high heat, sauté the butters, extra virgin olive oil, mirepoix, salt and pepper for approximately three minutes. Deglaze the pan with Merlot. Add the remaining ingredients. Let them stew together for approximately six minutes or as soon as the okra is tender. Be sure to not overcook the okra, or it will become very mushy.

8 ounces, fettuccini, cooked al denté

1 tablespoon, extra virgin olive oil

2 tablespoons, fresh chopped dill 

Preheat a sauté pan on medium-high heat. Add the butter and extra virgin olive oil. As soon as the butter melts, add the heavy cream. Cook for approximately two minutes. Add the remaining ingredients. Fold everything together until the cheeses begin to thicken the sauce. Place the rockfish on top, then add the stewed tomatoes with okra.
