Dinner For Two Anyone?

Cooking for two requires a different mindset than cooking for larger numbers. Roasting whole joints of meat or cooking up big side dishes to share are 'off the menu'. As a result of this often much more planning is required, that is not a bad thing, I do it all for you.

Don't worry, if you are cooking for more going in the other direction and scaling up recipes is much easier!

My recipes are all designed with cooking for two in mind. Even those with larger serving sizes will be great for either freezing or repurposing as leftovers.


Pepper and Sausage Pasta

Simple pasta recipes are always a great kitchen fall back for those busy days, this roasted pepper and sausage pasta is one of those recipes. Waiting for the sausage to roast in the oven with the peppers is the most difficult part of this recipe.

How to Make Italian Sausages

Making Italian Sausages at home is not a difficult task, even stuffing them and forming sausage links falls well within the reach of all home cooks. All it takes is a sense of adventure and no real skill, it is also a massive giggle if you are childish like me!

Ham and Asparagus Pasta

Pasta is always great for the quick win and in this recipe it is coated in an asparagus puree and then served with blanched asparagus spears. It is then served with some great quality wafer thin parma ham. A perfect, simple summer 30-minute meal!
