Red spaghetti… and a grumpy old woman’s take on the rest of my Chelsea Flower Show 2012 piccies

Making this red sauce really couldn't be simpler plus it's healthy and delicious!

Part food post, part flower show As I’d already posted some of the food-oriented images from our trip to the Chelsea Flower Show, I originally set out to focus this post on a staple recipe that has sustained both my husband and I during these last few turbulent weeks.

A spicy vegetarian pasta with cavolo nero (kale). Who knew healthier eating could be so gratifying?

I've surprised myself with the number of meat free meals I've actually made and this spicy vegetarian pasta is one I'm particularly proud of.

A dish I’m really, really proud of I’ve just made it past my first week of healthier eating (apart from Sunday’s foie gras) and, so far, I’ve managed to stick to my healthier exercise plan too.

It’s Friday again (yay!) which means… conghiglioni vongole today

Clams in the Wrong Shell

It had to be done… You can find conghiglioni pasta shells in most supermarkets these days but I never really wanted to cook with them until after I posted my story about amuse bouches. It’s kind of hard to miss them because 1) they are bigger than most pasta shells and 2) they’re shaped like a … Continue reading
