Basically ramen. But I cheated, and made it quick and easy, like almost as easy as 2 minute noodles but full of goodness and yummy nourishing things rather than a weird dehydrated sachet of ‘flavour’. But let’s be honest, I might be trash talking that stuff but I crave it sometimes as it was the comfort food of my childhood and then hangover food of my teenage years and very early twenties. Don’t judge me, just admire how far I’ve come;)
Gimme all the pasta always. And this pasta has so many of my favourite flavours in it in a delicious harmonious mix. The sauce is enriched with olive oil and coats the pasta so that every bite is flavoursome joy. And the fried capers. The fried capers are like salty and sharp bread crumbs make every one of those bites incredible.
It might technically be spring but seeing as Melbourne likes to play fast and loose with sticking to the seasons, so will I. My first week back on pasta and here I am with this flavour bomb of a bowl of deliciousness.
You cannot possibly underestimate the warming, healing and happiness power of a good soup on a cold day. I’m probably making at least 1 soup a week at the moment and filling my freezer with tasty things for cold days when cooking is just beyond me. Yeah even people like me who spend all their time, thinking about, writing about and cooking food can’t be stuffed sometimes. Make your way through this tasty little collection this winter for happy bellies and warm hands.
I was going to call this chicken noodle soup, because any short thicker style pasta will work. But, I love it with orecchiette the best so let’s give those little ears of pasta a starring role in the recipe name. They deserve it.
This week has been full of fun things with some great new recipe son the blog, naturally I’ll be including them in this weeks meal plans! One of them is my favourite thing I’ve made in a long time because it uses one of my favourite ingredients… noodles!
This noodle soup is totally a Japanese Thai hybrid thing, and it’s amazing. Like all my noodle, soup, and curry dreams coming true.
My new thing is using curry pastes and a little stock or coconut cream to create the flavour and sauce. It’s so quick and easy and packs a huge flavour punch! You can make your own paste and freeze in portions or keep in the fridge if you plan on using it quickly, or just buy one. So many options to make your life tasty, healthy and easy.
