Ribbons of pasta coated in bacon, eggs and cream make a warming supper dish, with less than half the fat of other versions of this popular Italian dish.
Ambrosial, delicious and mouthwatering! You can add chilli sauce to give that sauce a kick. Also, if you haven't gotten fresh tomatoes, you may use tinned chopped tomatoes.
I am not suggesting for a minute that spaghetti carbonara can be a diet food. However, if you are a fan of this creamy, comforting pasta dish and balk at the calories, here's a method that shaves a few off by omitting butter and cream. It's still yummy though!
This is a speedy dish with simple but gorgeous flavours.
Super easy carbonara, 10 mins cooking time, yummy dish. To make this recipe less fattening you can use light single cream and low fat ham instead of bacon. Serves two people, increase the pasta amount for additional people
This recipe is a perfect “pick me up” when you need something warm and comforting, it’s as far from “fine dining” as you can get, it’s wet, sloppy, requires lots of bread for mopping and is the perfect cure for a bad mood. There’s no way to dress it up, it’s simple, rustic and soooooo delicious.
We wanted a quick snack in the evening, plus i had some bread from the day before and some tomatoes that I wanted to get rid of. This is the best bruschetta I have ever made...so did my husband say.
This is such an easy tomato sauce to make and it freezes well too. Everyone that has tasted this has been totally in love with it and say it's better than any shop bought stuff. It's lovely with spaghetti or any kind of pasta. Added to your Bolognese sauce is gorgeous. You won't regret trying this and there are lots of different things to add. It's a cheap midweek meal and gorgeous.
A simple, rich and hearty Italian pasta. Fettucine is tossed with chicken and mushrooms in a creamy tomato sauce. Enjoy as a starter or main course.
A pizza dough that won't take hours of kneading and proofing. Top with your favourite toppings, then bake. Simple and delicious.
A wonderful Easter treat, which originates from Italy. Wheat berries are cooked until tender, then baked in a shortcrust pastry case with ricotta, crystallised fruit, sugar, eggs, lemon zest and orange zest. It's deliciously moist, creamy and dense.
There's nothing better than a simple pasta dish! The classic combination of tomato, basil and cheese just always works, and is a terrific midweek supper, ready in just 20 minutes. Enjoy!
I often make this spaghetti aglio, olio e peperoncino when the cupboards are practically bare I've had no time to shop. It's simple and delicious. You can also use basil instead of parsley, if desired.
A risotto with melted Parmesan cheese and a good dose of white wine. So simple, yet so elegant and delicious! Perfect as a first course for a dinner party. To make a nice presentation, I filled round plain pastry cutters with the risotto and removed the cutters then top each risotto with a sage leaf.
My own take on a classic Italian dish.
This is a truly delicious pizza. It's made by topping fresh pizza dough with caramelised onions, Gorgonzola, apples and walnuts. Enjoy as is or with a side salad.
A fantastic summery salad, which is perfect anytime of the year. Tomatoes, spring onions and basil are tossed with a simple, yet delicious vinaigrette.
A deliciously rich and creamy cheese sauce, which is a cinch to make. Butter is simmered with cream, Parmesan, Pecorino Romano, egg yolk and seasonings. Serve with fresh pasta of your choice.
This quick and easy vegetarian pasta dish tastes fantastic. Pasta is tossed with garlic butter, basil and artichokes. Simple and utterly delicious.
A simple and delicious dish, which is super-easy to make. Linguine is served with a delicious sauce made from garlic, tomatoes, parsley and clams. Serve with grated Parmesan cheese and crusty bread, if desired.
