Beetroot and Feta Pasta

I was given a packet of red lentil and beetroot spiral pasta last week. I didn't even know it existed! A friend had spotted it in a local Aldi store and thought it might be worth an experiment. I decided to try it out and make a Saturday night main meal ..... I must admit I was very happy with the overall result, although the pasta did lose at lot of its dark red beetroot colour during the cooking process, which was a tad disappointing. A quick meal though, that only took abo

Goats Cheese & Pesto Parcels

These parcels are so easy to make, I don't know why it's been so long since I last made them. Great midweek meal because you're eating them after 30 mins (inc prep). I have only tried green pesto but I'm wondering if red pesto would also work, don't see why not. Ideal if you are vegetarian too, or if like me, you like a few meat free meals during the week. Why not give them a try. You could even make tiny ones as canapes if you are having friends round. 5 ingredients, you can

Creamy Mushroom & Herb Pasta

First time of making this pasta dish. I had some chestnut mushrooms left from the stroganoff so thought I'd use them up with some fresh herbs in a creamy sauce - heavenly! It only takes about 10 mins (as long as it takes for the pasta to cook) to produce this plate of deliciousness and you won't be disappointed. Again, it isn't millions of ingredients, so you're onto a winner and perfect for the vegetarians amongst us :-) The Recipe Ingredients

Pasta with Courgettes, Rosemary & Lemon

I always have pasta in the cupboard, it's a staple for me. I like to try different ways of making an easy meal, usually midweek, with as little fuss as possible and as few ingredients as possible. I've tried this twice now, only the second time I varied it and added a lemon & rosemary baked chicken breast and used wild garlic flavoured pasta to just change it up a bit. That's the beauty of cooking, you can tweak here and there to suit what you fancy or just what you have in

Mushroom & Lemon Risotto

I quite like a meat free meal from time to time and one of my favourites is this risotto. It's as comforting as a fluffy blanket on a chilly night like tonight. You don't need many ingredients for this recipe either, however, it is a labour of love and you have to stay with it ... which for me means I usually get some tunes going and have a session of kitchen karaoke! Perfect :-) The Recipe Ingredients 125g (approx 1 cup) Arborio rice 1 white onion finely chopped 2 cloves o
