Pappardelle with Mushrooms, Basil & Chilli

This quick vegetarian dish is so tasty and uses creme fraiche instead cream so it is that bit lower in fat and so better for you and your family. It is important that you saute the mushrooms enough to release the flavours which will make the dish extremely tasty. You can also add finely diced […]

Tagliatelle, Smoked Bacon, Kale and Mushroom

If you are looking for a fast healthy dinner or lunch them this is the recipe for you. It uses no cream or butter at all instead I used Rapeseed Oil. Aldi and Lidl do smoked pancetta pieces or SuperValu do bacon Lardons, they are all the same price. I prefered SuperValu’s.

Pasta Bolognese

Always a family favourite this is far nicer than anything from a jar, it is also way cheaper and far better for you and your family. Remove or add veg to suit your tastes, I used carrots, peppers and mushrooms. Smoked rashers are great in it as well. I choose to make handmade pasta for […]

Lobster Ravioli Saffron Cream

In my opinion you can’t beat handmade pasta and ravioli is one of my favourites esp when filled with something as nice as lobster. This dish may seem daunting but believe me, it really isn’t difficult at all. You can order fresh lobster from your fishmongers but there really is no need to put yourself […]

Tagliatelle, Shaved Asparagus and Poached Egg

This simple dish is very easy and quick to make and makes a great lunch. It isn’t at all heavy, in fact it makes a refreshing, tasty meal. I used fresh egg pasta, you can use dried but try to get a good quality one if you do. Due to there being no sauce in […]

Prawn Linguine

Linguine with Prawns, Chilli & Garlic

Linguine is like spaghetti only slightly flatter so not as rounded. It goes great with seafood especially crab and prawns. This is a really easy dish to make and doesn’t take much time at all so makes a great lunch or even a dinner for those days when you are too busy to make something […]

Meatballs

Italian Meatballs

A real family favourite and inexpensive to make, great for making in bulk and freezing esp when one of the stores has a good quality mince on offer. You can change the meat to minced pork or lamb. Half pork and half beef mince is also great. You can really make the mince go further […]

Crab Linguine

If you fancy a little bit of luxury then this is the dish for you, you can pick crab meat up cheap in Lidl and Aldi, though it isn’t as good as what you will get from your local fish monger. If you can’t find linguine, spaghetti or similar will do. I will post a […]

Pasta

Pasta Dough, Basic Recipe

If you haven’t tried to make your own pasta, then you really should give it a go, all the kneading can be hard work but is easy to get right and is well worth the effort as nothing else comes close to a good homemade pasta, I have never had any packet pasta, fresh or dried that […]
