Spring is here and so is April, Easter breaks around the corner. With kids being at home its a great time to cook up some delicious , healthy and quick pasta recipes for the whole family. I love cooking pasta because it is a great way to bring smile around on full tummies and its a great way to combine lots of greens with meat or leave out the meat totally and get a very healthy meal on the table.Its also a thrifty meal idea to use up things from your larder and fridge that would otherwise face sure death.Pasta comes to the rescue always!
This is the first ever food challenge and linky that I shall be hosting so am nervous and hopeful that everyone participates with great enthusiasm :) Thanks to Jacqueline who blogs at Tinned Tomatoes for letting me host this lovely food challenge for April’14.
The theme for this months entry is – OLIVE OIL . I have just infused a bottle of olive oil with crushed garlic ,chilli flakes and fresh italian herbs! Am very excited to create something tasty with this oil and use some of large packet of Pappardelle Pasta I purchased yesterday!
Sounds exciting? Ready to join in the challenge?
