My favourite aunt introduced me to this deliciously rich and fragrant dish. In the past few years I've made some changes and this is the recipe my family likes best. It's a great chilli con carne alternative and it freezes well. Try it on a jacket potato!
Once you make this Italian pasta dish, it will become a firm favourite. Spaghetti is topped with homemade meatballs in a tomato sauce. Enjoy with a liberal sprinkling of Parmesan, if desired.
This chilli con carne recipe is great served with rice or over jacket potatoes, accompanied by crusty bread, guacamole, soured cream, lime wedges and a big green salad. This recipe is best enjoyed a day or two after it is cooked as the flavours develop and the texture becomes richer. You can leave it in the fridge after cooling and then heat before serving. The recipe can also be frozen.
This is a variation of the ever-popular spaghetti bolognese and is sure to become just as well-loved. The little meatballs have aubergine added for a modern twist, and the sauce contains all the essential flavours of a classic Italian dish. Both can be made ahead, then simply reheated when you are ready to cook the pasta.
REMEMBER! You can add but cannot take away....
A lovely combination of mince, macaroni and a luscious cheese sauce, this is pure comfort food! It's tasty and cheap to make too!
This is a deliciously different Italian pasta dish. Lasagne sheets are layered with beef ragu and cheese sauce, then baked to perfection. Enjoy with warm garlic bread, if desired.
This is truly an amazing chilli con carne. The recipe gets its trademark by the addition of coffee and dark beer. Don't be afraid to try this! Freeze in batches with great success.
A dish I have been cooking for years that is easy to adapt to different tastes. Kids and adults alike all seem to love it.
This spaghetti Bolognese is the most comforting meal you will ever eat. It is more garlicky than many Bolognese sauces but it is simple and delicious. Once you have tasted this, you will never want to eat sauce from a jar ever again!
