Lemon & pea risotto with chicken

Lemon & pea risotto with chicken

Lemon and peas are delicious together and, in this risotto, you can see why.
Risotto is a popular Italian rice dish that can be served as a starter, main course or side dish. Arborio rice is a short grain rice and gives this dish its typical creamy, soft texture. Stock is gradually stirred into the rice so that it can cook slowly, but it should not be cooked until it is completely soft. This simple combination is divine and can be enjoyed as a main meal or light meal without the chicken.

Pasta with eggs & green beans

If you do not like green eggs and ham… why not try green beans and eggs.
Carbonara is a delicious and very popular pasta sauce, with egg as the main ingredient and often lots of cream and bacon added. I enjoy this simpler version, which is lighter and so quick and easy to put together. You could even serve it as a starter. Asparagus spears are delicious with eggs, but thin green beans or any other green veggies will be as good in this dish.

Chicken lasagne with butternut & broccoli

Chicken lasagne with butternut & broccoli

This recipe was a happy accident made with a bit of this and a bit of that from the fridge. I hope your family enjoys it as much as mine did. You can prepare this lasagne with store-bought lasagne sheets or make your own fresh pasta. Making fresh pasta is not difficult and quite a lot of fun for the whole family to assist with. And the flavour and texture is just sooo good!

Basic mince mixture

Homemade convenience food at its best – a tasty, yet simple mince mixture. Everyone knows a bolognaise mixture on pasta, but have you tried mince on a baked potato or roasted sweet potato? This recipe is so easy to prepare and you can be quite creative with all the different ways to turn the mince into a new meal every time.

Roasted tomato soup

I get very excited when I think about this thick and flavourful soup. The roasted tomato flavours are more intense and interesting than an ordinary boiled soup and so easy to make. It’s ideal for a midweek meal or a comforting family weekend meal.
