An easy but impressive pasta dish that’s great for a weekend lunch with friends. It’s a Gennaro Contaldo recipe for the Good Food Channel website that was part of the Spring photoshoot I cooked for last month. I got a bit stressed about not being able to source giant pasta shells, so in the end my […]

Pasta Please February Round Up

I hosted a round of Pasta Please for Jac from Tinned Tomatoes in February and asked everyone to contribute with their ideas for recipes using spaghetti. It’s such a staple in our house, but if i’m honest I don’t branch out further than using a handful of recipes, so it was great to get some inspiration from […]

I’ve created this quick and easy vegetarian family supper to celebrate the release of Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs 2 on Blu-Ray and DVD on 17th February. I wish it would rain meatballs… it would make a very pleasant change to all this chuffing rain that is making us all so damp and miserable. My […]

Mini baked spaghetti omelettes with tomato dip

Mini baked spaghetti omelettes

These bite size spaghetti omelettes are perfect for serving up at Christmas parties with a little dip on the side for dunking, or even for a children’s tea. They’re also a great way of using up leftover pasta. I’ve flavoured mine with chopped sundried tomatoes, but you can add whatever you’ve got to hand, ham, […]

I wanted to share some of the recipes and photographs from the latest photoshoot I styled for The Good Food Channel website. Summer may not seem like the ideal time for pasta bakes, but these recipes have a touch of blue skies about them and are super easy to knock up for children in need […]

This pot of loveliness is pork and beef meatballs nestled into pasta in a roasted vegetable sauce with chunks of torn mozzarella and a crispy herb topping. If you’ve got a crowd coming for lunch over the Easter holidays, then this would be the perfect dish to plonk on a board in the middle of the […]

Spinach, leek and cheese pasta bake

Spinach, leek and cheese pasta bake

I found this recipe in October’s issue of BBC Good Food magazine – it’s the perfect one pot dish for a chilly autumn evening after the kids have got home from a session at the swimming pool. I can’t seem to find the recipe on their website, but as I modified it to suit our […]

Macaroni cheese and broccoli souffle

Macaroni cheese

I love a good macaroni cheese, and every time I make it I try to put a different spin on it. This time it’s a fluffy version inspired by Delia >>see her recipe here I’ve added grain mustard to perk up my sauce, broccoli to break up the carbs and used parmesan (veggie version) instead […]

Creme fraiche, lemon and pea linguine with soya meatballs

creme fraiche, lemon and pea linguine with soya meatballs

This is super quick to make, it’s very creamy but using half fat creme fraiche means you don’t have to feel too guilty about it. I used Sainsbury’s fake meatballs from their wonderful frozen meat free range. They’re really moist compared to some i’ve tried and you simply bake them from frozen for 20 minutes […]
