Duck Ragu with Pappardelle

Duck Ragu with Pappardelle

I was doing the groceries at Harris Farm Markets a couple of weeks ago and I don’t know about you, but when I shop there I tend to walk out with way more items than intended. Not only do I never take enough bags in, my credit card also cops a slight beating as I...
Pasta with Sausage, Mushroom & Sun-dried Tomato Pesto

Pasta with Sausage, Mushroom & Sun-dried Tomato Pesto

I am a total pasta lover. For me, it is the epitome of comfort on a plate. It is a weekly staple in our house and almost always on a Monday night. This is for two reasons. After a celebratory weekend I feel the need for carbohydrates (even though Monday is always...
Spaghetti Arrabiata

Spaghetti Arrabiata

I have been cooking Spaghetti Arrabiata for about 15 years and we still have it about once a month.  It is a staunch family fave that never changes.  It is like your old fluffy slippers, your cuddly bear with the torn ear or your  grey old dressing...
Pasta Carbonara

Pasta Carbonara

Carbonara is an Italian pasta dish that I have always wanted to master and while it has the most simple of ingredients, the method of getting it right is quite tricky. The traditional method uses eggs to create a rich sauce without the addition of cream, which is...
Linguine with Sausage, Fennel & Roast Tomatoes

Linguine with Sausage, Fennel & Roast Tomatoes

Coming up with new and exciting pasta dishes can present a bit of a challenge in my house as every member of the family has their favourite and they don’t like to deviate. On this occasion I decided not to ask their opinions and went about creating a beautiful,...
Rich Mushroom Ragu with Pappardelle

Rich Mushroom Ragu with Pappardelle

I am sitting at my computer, looking at this image, drooling and wondering how I am going to get through writing this recipe without hitting the fridge for some kind of sustenance to eliminate the watery mouth feeling I have from a severe case of wanting. This was so...
Beef Cheek & Porcini Ragu with Pappardelle

Beef Cheek & Porcini Ragu with Pappardelle

I invested in a pressure cooker (or multi cooker) about 12 months ago and I love it. I gave my old slow cooker away as I found that I preferred the speed of a pressure cooker and the fact that I can brown, cook and simmer in the one pot. I can still use it like a slow...
Linguine with Roasted Summer Veg

Linguine with Roasted Summer Veg

I love a simple pasta and especially when the bulk of the ingredients come from my own garden. My summer veg are in abundance right now so it is a no brainer that I incorporate them in to as many recipes as I can and I often find that roasting them brings out an...
Linguine with Roasted Summer Veg

Chorizo, Pork & Mushroom Ragu with Fettuccine

  Delicious, spicy chorizo takes centre stage in this super easy Ragu.  Cooked low and slow this rich, meaty sauce was the perfect accompaniment to long, slippery strands of fettuccine and a generous smattering of sharp tangy parmesan.  Oh yeah.   Prep time:...
Beef, Beer & Bacon Bolognese

Beef, Beer & Bacon Bolognese

You may have noticed I love tweaking old faves with different flavours and this was no exception.  Bolognese has always been a staple in our house, particularly in the colder months as there is nothing quite as enticing as the scent of garlic, onions, herbs and mince...
