Pinterest has supplied me with a couple of cracking recipes. It’s like looking through an online magazine and I love to be able to see what something looks like before I cook it, it’s part of the inspiration process. This one was a doozy though, I couldn’t believe me eyes. A one pot pasta dish? No separate sauce to make? Bring it to a boil and leave it? No way.
While Pami, my wife and the brains behind this blog, is in California it has been left to me to fend for myself in the kitchen. This calls for quick, simple meals-for-one that can be made after work and won’t send me heading for the takeout menus.
Before any of you get any misconceptions, let me just make this clear: I am not obsessed with Jamie Oliver. However, while he may make too many dirty dishes, he does have some good ideas when it comes to quick food. I have both the 30 Minute Meals and 15 Minute Meals cookbooks and they are fantastic – even though they always take longer than they claim. Of all the recipes I have tried from each, I have only had one failure – although that was pretty much inedible so take from that what you will.
