A great twist on a traditional comfort food.
This quick main dish can be served hot or cool. The pasta is topped with feta cheese, which has a fresh, salty flavour that goes well with pancetta, the Italian bacon, chickpeas and tomato in the sauce. For best results, use a tubular or thick pasta shape that will complement the chunky sauce.
This quick supper dish with a creamy sauce is so delicious that everyone will be surprised to learn that the sauce is made from only one ingredient. Colour and texture are provided by broccoli and cauliflower. Offer bread to complement the vegetables and a simple tomato salad to contrast with the creamy sauce.
When you are hungry and in a hurry this simple pasta dish can be on the table in next to no time. You will even be able to put together a salad accompaniment and still be sitting down to eat within 20 minutes. Take care when melting the cheese to ensure that it does not get too hot.
Introduce vegetables to old favourites for up-to-the-minute healthy family meals. This well-loved pasta dish is delicious with mushrooms, peas and peppers added. Using a small amount of powerful Roquefort cheese ensures that the sauce is creamy and full flavoured, but not too high in fat.
This is the perfect choice when you fancy a change from meat, and it will appeal to the whole family. For a well-balanced meal, start with a root vegetable soup, and serve the loaf with a mixed salad and crusty bread.
Broccoli and cauliflower add extra nutrients to a family favourite, while a fat-free sauce keeps it light.
A deliciously rich and comforting macaroni cheese.
Kids love it and it's easy to make. Also good if you add some chopped ham!
Three cheeses layered with pasta and tomato passata sauce. This recipe is so easy and so good!
This is a delicious and simple vegetarian pasta dish. Use your favourite blue cheese -- I always use Danish blue as I'm a lover of strong flavours. Use spinach fettucine if you like!
Delicious and creamy, this dish is prepared with fresh and simple ingredients.
This recipe uses less milk and no thickener whatsoever! Very cheesy, too! You can either serve it from the pot, or top with buttered breadcrumbs and put in a 180 / Gas 4 oven to brown for half an hour, but we like ours fine without.
Using shop-bought gnocchi makes this comforting, rustic dish ready in less time than it takes to heat up a ready-made meal. If you're feeling up to it, try making homemade gnocchi, which is more time consuming, but not at all difficult.
This pasta bake is a very rich and cheesy meal. It works well with cannelloni tubes or large pasta shells.
Scrumptious lasagne with basil pesto, spinach and plenty of bubbly cheese.
I like it because it has tomatoes and English mustard which spice up the regular macaroni and cheese.
A recipe we have been making in this family for years - still a favourite.
A quick and easy adaptation of a non-vegetarian recipe. And it's still flavoursome! If you can't get chopped tinned tomatoes with garlic and onion - look for a chunky pasta sauce for a substitute OR add your own fresh onion & garlic.
Portobello mushrooms and Gorgonzola cheese add depth to this simple pasta bake. Use your favourite pasta shapes for variety.
