Salami and Leek Pasta

If there is an ingredient better than pasta at being a midweek meal life saver I have no idea what it is. 10-12 minutes to cook and will work with practically any ingredient you have in your fridge or cupboard. Here we have a salami and leek pasta!

Individual Rigatoni Pasta Pie

Yes, I know it is not really a pie, but hey it is my rigatoni pasta pie… Rigatoni standing to attention with a balsamic tomato sauce, mozzarella and Parmesan and wilted spinach!

It would seem that pasta pies are typically designed for those with larger families because all of the recipes I could find were to feed an army. When I say an army I probably mean many small mouths as the appearance is definitely kid friendly, however as an adult I like a bit of fun food on occasion too!

Balsamic Mushroom Pasta

Mushrooms lend themselves so well to pasta dishes and this balsamic mushroom pasta is enriched with butter and Balsamic vinegar.

Few flavours go together like balsamic and mushrooms so this super simple mushroom pasta is a pretty safe bet on the flavour front, but it is just fantastic. It does not matter what is happening or how the day has gone it is one of those dishes that requires the cooking skill of a house brick to pull together and always tastes like a million dollars despite costing pennies.
