QUICK SPICY VEGETARIAN RAMEN

I am aware this sin’t my first ‘quick ramen’ recipe but it’s one of my favourite things to eat for dinner so I will keep coming up with variations and sharing them with you.

That said, it still has to be delicious.

PRAWN PASTA WITH CHILLI AND BLISTERED CHERRY TOMATOES

       This is date night pasta. Whether that date is with yourself, a mate or your significant other. The kind of dish that’s impressive but very little effort so you’ll look like a whizz without getting yourself in a state. If tomatoes are in season it is beautiful with roasted Roma tomatoes stirred through, if not then just use a good quality passata. Or alternatively cherry tomatoes, halved and thrown in a pan with a little smashed garlic, chilli, oil and parsley and cooked until blistered is also great (I also make them a bit saucier (in all meanings of the word) by adding a little reserved cooking water from the pasta to loosen the tomatoes into a sauce when I do this.

ROAST CAPSICUM LINGUINI WITH PECORINO AND ROCKET

 
This is such a great dish because you can make the sauce in advance and just heat it up when you’re ready to use it.

The katsu crumb is the perfect thing to hold it all together and the spice laced curry sauce brings the extra flavour it needs. This is a delicious dinner and it just happens to be vegan.
