Perfect Pasta Dishes
This easy, cheesy Broccoli Pasta Bake is a great no-fuss dinner idea. Flavourful roasted broccoli and red onion, tossed with pasta in a quick cream cheese and cheddar sauce with a deliciously crunchy almond and cheese topping.
Pasta tossed with tender chicken and peas in a silky lemon cream sauce. Rich and creamy with a delectable citrus zing, this pasta sauce is one of my all time favourites. Quick and easy to prepare, Creamy Lemon Chicken Pasta is an all-round winner.
Creamy Sausage and Kale Pasta is a dish that is made to impress. Savoury sausage, Cavolo Nero and rigatoni tossed in a deliciously silky tomato and white wine sauce you will want to lick off the plate.
Quick and easy yet decadent and date-night worthy, Smoked Salmon and Prawn Linguine has a deliciously creamy lemon and white wine sauce plus a bite of peppery rocket.
Whether you call it Aubergine or Eggplant, there is no denying how rich and delicious this vegetable ragu is! Slow cooked for maximum flavour, Aubergine Ragu is the perfect pairing for pasta.
Simple Tomato Pasta Sauce takes a little time but minimal effort. Three basic pantry ingredients make the most delicious and silky sauce.
