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.
This dish was a happy accident. I made a kale and lemon pappardelle, and then accidentally left the pan on with the leftovers in it. The pasta got all golden and crispy on the bottom, as did he make and the Parmesan melted through it and it was BETTER. A few other changes later and we have the beautiful, wholesome and easy to make skillet ‘lasange’.
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.
Is there anything more cosy or comforting than a pasta bake? It’s also a super easy way to make a filling vegetarian meal! All you need is some sort of green salad on the side and dinner is sorted.
It’s that time of the week again! Time to get life sorted for the week ahead… or just thinking about it while you laze around enjoying your Sunday. I’m planning on spending some time recipe testing so I can get new content up asap… but that is my version of relaxing some times. I need to start yoga.
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.
A creamy mushroom pasta is like eating a big warm hug. It’s so comforting and rich and delicious. But it often makes me feel a bit sick if I have the actual creamy version. This vegan version contains no dairy at all, and still has that creamy texture and intense mushroom flavour you’re looking for. It can also be ready oh so quickly.
