CHICKEN ORECCHIETTE SOUP WITH PARMESAN AND LEMON

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.

The whole point of these noodles is to be quick, easy and full of some goodness. I’m not sure about you but sometimes the celebrations get away with me and it only takes one glass too many of wine and I am not feeling my healthiest the next day. I like to avoid the potful of hangovers, eating all the fried food and drinking sugary things, as often as possible. I mean, we’re all human but there’s no need to stack on the punishment for your body right? These noodles are your saviour.

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.

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.
