    These crispy and crunchy ravioli are so moreish and perfect for an easy-but-unique party nibble. Serve with warm pasta sauce for dipping, or any other variety of sauce you desire. The best part is that they're so crispy, yet baked instead of fried!

    This is such a flavourful, nutty, fresh tasting pasta salad. I always serve it at my parties. I think it's the combination of fresh spinach, the crispy bacon and the pine nuts that make it so good.

    This is a fantastic dish to make during the summer. Roasted courgette, asparagus, onion and portabello mushrooms are tossed with orzo pasta and Parmesan. Serve as a starter or a main course.
