This pasta. This pasta is everything. Soft, gently cooked, flakes of salmon tossed with al dente orecchiette that scoops up the peas and herbs. Plus, the fennel and lemon are the perfect thing to compliment salmon. This pasta is light and flavoursome. Fresh spring flavours in a bowl.
This pasta is creamy without being heavy and filled with garlicky caramelised brussel sprouts. The crunchy toasted hazelnuts add texture and nutty flavour that works really well with those sprouts.
I have to share this with you because I’m obsessed with red lentil pasta at the moment. It’s super filling, has great flavour and is a dream with this simple sauce. Even if you’re not gluten free it makes a nice change and is an easy way for adding more protein t vegetarian pasta dishes. It’s just an all round win.
Comfort food. But full of goodness too. This creamy cheesey mac n cheese is full of cauliflower, both in the cauliflower based ‘bechamel’ and in the crispy roasted bits peeking out the top. it’s a good one.
This lasagne is packed full of vegetables, I’ve literally stuffed in as many as I could. The ragu is made of vegetables, most of the pasta layers are actually vegetables. The bechamel sauce is actually vegetables. All the vegetables. You can feel really high and mighty about this one.
I’m having a love affair with pasta at the moment. Pasta with rich comforting sauces. Sauces full of things that are good for you. Like this one, it’s got tonnes of flavour, is full of vegetables and the sauce can be used in lots of different ways.
Yeah, you read that right. That word is definitely not Italian is it? But sugo is. Gochujang is a a spicy fermented bean paste from Korea. And it’s pungent sweet and spicy notes give a totally new and really interesting twist to traditional spaghetti and meatballs. I know it sounds like weird fusion cooking but it’s full of flavour and defines ‘winter warmer’.
A simple and satisfying dinner that can be changed up to suit whatever you’re craving. The sauce is punchy and delicious. Full of flavour from roasting the veg and the texture means it coats the pasta beautifully.
