Rose Pasta with Roasted Vegetables

Posted on

A recipe can be found here. I really liked the pasta and sauce, but next time I think I would serve it with a salad rather than roasted vegetables.

In this recipe, sweet potato noodles are served with spinach, mushroom, carrot and onion. I thought it was quite tasty.

Chickpeas and Pasta

I started off with this recipe, but declined to add capers or olives. I replaced the lemon zest with lemon juice, and used ordinary tomatoes instead of cherry tomatoes. As I was unable to find orecchiette, I used a different pasta. I also added some black cumin seeds along with the tomatoes. I used a lot less oil than the recipe called for. It was very tasty.

Baked Pasta with Tomato Sauce and Cheese

Posted on

As an adult, I sometimes find myself craving pasta and cheese. But I prefer a slightly more complex taste than when I was a child, and therefore like to add tomato. To make this I fried minced garlic and then added a tin of diced tomatoes, along with marjoram, salt and thyme. I cooked the pasta while the sauce was simmering. After the pasta was cooked, I mixed it in with the sauce and mixed in some grated Turkish cheese. I put it in a baking pan, topped with a bit more grated cheese, and baked it for 20 minutes. I topped it with fresh basil leaves (I actually used Thai basil, as that was what I had) and served it with a salad.

This is the kind of cooking I do when I’m not in the mood to cook.

Mushroom and Sour Cream Pasta

Posted on

A friend who cooked a meal at my house left me with most of an open container of sour cream. To avoid wasting it, I prepared pasta with mushrooms in a sour cream sauce. While the pasta was cooking, I cooked mushrooms and garlic gradually with a bit of oil, then I added some marjoram, thyme, salt and pepper. I added the sour cream to the mushrooms and let it simmer on low to thicken, before adding the pasta and mixing it well. I topped it with chopped parsley.

This classic pasta dish consists of little more than garlic, tomato and chilli pepper, but is nonetheless delicious.


Chinese Mushroom Noodle Soup

Using vegetarian oyster sauce, vegetable stock, and egg-free noodles makes this dish vegan. For mushrooms I chose Shiitake mushrooms and black fungus.
