Very simple, basic pasta sauce that can easily be varied by adding vegetables, mushrooms, seafood or meat. So much tastier and better for you than stuff from the jars!
A tasty and extremely healthy tomato pasta sauce, ideal for getting your kids to eat vegetables! This is good to make in large batches and then freeze to have on hand when you need a simple, home-cooked meal for the family.
A delicious and satisfying Mediterranean-inspired blend of Swiss chard, olives, garlic and sun-dried tomatoes tossed with pasta.
This pasta salad reminds me of summer and it feeds a crowd! I regularly use up leftovers (chicken and veggies) in this salad.
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 is a traditional Ligurian dish that is usually made with potatoes, green beans and baby broad beans. Here, broccoli and courgettes boost the green vegetable content. The pesto sauce used to dress the pasta and vegetables is lighter than most, but still packs a wonderful flavoursome punch.
Spend a little time making this delicious, savoury pasta sauce, then freeze it in meal-sized portions so that you have fresh homemade sauce on hand at any time! Add 250g mince if you prefer a meatier sauce.
Had to go fat free for three weeks this was really great and can be added to to make lasagna, bolognaise etc.
Having been in catering for 40 years the biggest problems we all face is a filling tasty meal that is also healthy, this recipe can be used on its own over pasta with maybe a breaded escalope or as the base for Bolognese lasagna even spanish chicken. Due to the lack of any fat at all this does need a long slow cook. I tend to make a massive big pot of this and then freeze it into usuable size portions (rest of the now grown up family always grab a few from the freezer whenever they come round)
This salad is wonderful served warm or at room temperature.
After having this at a restaurant, I decided that I HAD to learn how to make it. Here is what I came up with.
A delicious and fresh tasting pasta sauce. The fresh basil added at the end is essential. This sauce can be left chunky (which I prefer) or blended in a food processor to a smooth sauce. Serve over pasta with plenty of Parmesan cheese.
I got this recipe from a cook while travelling in Africa, it is a lovely quick recipe and you can use whatever vegetables you have left in the fridge.
This is just a brilliant easy toimato sauce which can be adapted a zillion ways to serve with pasta. I grow my own tomatoes and usually make this with a mix of differents types. I had a glut this year and have loads of this in the freezer to remind me of summer.
A tasty and hearty vegetarian aubergine pasta sauce that the meat-eaters will love. I like to serve it with linguine but any pasta is fine. You could also turn this into a pasta bake by tossing with penne, then topping with grated mozzarella cheese and baking for about 15 to 20 minutes in a 180 C oven.
A lovely pasta salad chock-a-block with veg. This a great and easy pasta salad to make for the family or for guests. It's great with barbecued meats or as part of a vegetarian meal. I hope you enjoy it as much as my family does.
This is an incredibly tasty pasta sauce, which is a cinch to make. Tomatoes are roasted with olive oil, garlic, salt, pepper, chillies and balsamic vinegar.
This recipe makes about 500ml of pasta sauce. It's rich in flavour and a great way of making use of tomatoes when in-season. You can pass the sauce through a sieve at the end if you prefer a smoother sauce. Serve over pasta.
A super-delicious pasta sauce, which is simple to throw together. Bacon is simmered with red pepper in a rich tomato sauce. Serve with freshly cooked pasta and grated Parmesan, if desired.
A simple, yet totally scrummy cauliflower dish. Pasta is cooked with cauliflower in a creamy sauce. It's the perfect comfort food for the cold winter months.
