    A creamy mix of chorizo, sun-dried tomato pesto and pasta - a delicious midweek meal. I sometimes like to add some chilli for some heat. You can add dried chilli flakes or chopped fresh chilli to taste.

    This is a rustic Spanish, spicy, mince based baked penne pasta dish which is perfect for a no-frills family supper. It has come about through trial and error in an attempt to replicate a dish that I ate in a Spanish farmhouse some 15 years ago. In our family it is simply called THE Pasta Dish. The sauce makes 5 portions and so it becomes economical and quick after you've cooked the batch of sauce.

    This is a lighter version of pasta carbonara. For people who want the flavour but not the bacon, smoked salmon is the perfect substitute!

    Perfect comfort food! This recipe serves 3-4 people depending on appetite. As the gammon is salty, I find that this requires no salt to be added, but may depending on taste buds.

    This is an Italian recipe, very nice for the summer months! It has cucumber in it, which I don't like, but my husband does, so I just add cucumber to his individual portion!

    Chicken with pasta, sun-dried tomatoes and roasted red peppers. A unique pasta dish that goes great with bruschetta and a glass of wine.

    I made this the other night - it's nothing too special, I just really fancied some comfort food and a pasta bake is the ultimate comfort food for me. I made a simple cheese sauce and although I'm not a huge broccoli fan, I do love it in pasta bakes (what doesn't taste good when it's coated in cheese sauce anyway?) We also had some bacon in the fridge, and of course I always like to use onions and garlic with pasta so voila, this dish was born! And it is scrummy...

    This lovely pasta dish is very quick to cook, perfect for a meatfree midweek meal. It tastes great hot as well as cold as a pasta salad. To save time, you can use pre-washed spinach.
