Tuna Pasta

Tuna Pasta

Cooking Time: 1hour

Servings: 6 people 

Another meatless Monday dish that really doesn't have to be made on a Monday at all. I had a big tin of tuna in the pantry with a bunch of random other pantry staples I wanted to use up like spaghetti, panko breadcrumbs and some herbs in the fridge that had seen better days. So I decided to wing this pasta and see how it turned out, and it turned out amazing alright.

Banana Chocolate Swirl Bread

Banana Chocolate Swirl Bread

I had a lot of Easter chocolates and had to really get savvy with using them up and getting them out of my site otherwise I would have really eaten them all. So I thought I would make a loaf of my banana bread and add a swirl of melted chocolate through it and see how it would turn out... Well the recipe made the blog so it is definitely a winner.

Loaded Za'atar Fries

Loaded Za'atar Fries

Za’atar is one of those spices that speaks to my childhood like no other. za'atar is generally a combination of dried oregano, thyme, and/or marjoram, with sumac and toasted sesame seeds. It is a perfect balance in acid, tangy, and earthy flavours. This spice is commonly added to dough that has been rolled out with EVOO and cooked in a wood fire oven served for breakfast with labne, tomatoes and cucumber. I recreated my version of this in my cookbook “1 dough 10 recipes” with a cracked egg in the centre.

If its one pasta shape that I love it is these large pasta shells, purely because it is basically like a mini bowl that has all this sauce scooped right into it… This pasta is so quick and easy to make but also has an amazing punch in flavour.
