Speedy Storecupboard Pasta

I’m not a big fan of thick, tomatoey pasta sauces and much prefer something light and not at all gloopy. This is a dish I return to time and again, often adjusting it depending on whatever I’ve got in the fridge or the cupboard, but it generally always includes rocket or spinach leaves, tomatoes, pine nuts and garlic – beyond that, knock yerself out experimenting! 219 more words

I love this salad! Mostly because it’s so versatile (see substitutions) but also because it’s a delicious crowd pleaser and can be made ahead. It’s the perfect side dish or can serve as a main if you add protein. 253 more words

We don’t have it often, though when we do, it’s Ugg Boots on, spicy salami, oregano and basil and plenty of cheese. 527 more words
