Speedy Pork Noodles

Speedy Pork Noodles

Sometimes all you feel like is a bowl of noodles. This is my go too speedy noodle dish and I adore it simple because as the title says they’re speedy but also delicious. I personally love udon noodles especially in a ramen but of course you can always substitute the udon noodles for rice especially if you prefer a gluten free option. I saw this original recipe on Marions Kitchen and had to make it with some tweaks along the way.

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.

Roasted Garlic & Broccoli Orecchiette

Roasted Garlic & Broccoli Orecchiette

The region my husbands is from is called Bari in Italy and it is known for their ear shaped pasta called orecchiette, where nonna's sit in the lane ways selling their handmade version to the locals. This pasta is commonly made with sausage and broccoli, but the garlic lover Arab in me got thinking... what if I could make some sort of creamy garlicy broccoli  sauce to fold those gorgeous little ears in and I totally did. I roasted a whole garlic bulb and blanched a couple of broccoli's before blending them together in a somewhat pesto inspired...
