Reading and Recipes

Wednesday, October 08, 2008


Yes, two posts in one day... trying to make up for the lack of writing over the last few....

(so shoot me, I've been cooking!)

This one definately makes the list of things I will eat again. A thrown together dish from the freezer and the fridge and seriously yummy (I could probably have eaten my serving and DPs, and the extra portion for him to take for lunch tomorrow; but that would make me a pig... so I didn't and left space for cake :-) )

Chilli Linguine

this much makes 2 good portions and a lunch sized one spare.

4 sundried tomatoes - soak for a good 30mins before using
4 Tbsp chopped cooked tomatoes
1 tsp chilli paste
one small onion, finely chopped
10 ish frozen artichoke heart quarters (these ones came from M&S)
2 cups frozen green beans
3 portions wholegrain linguine (for us this is c. 150g, but your mileage may vary)
2 Tbsp olive oil

Fry off onion, then add tomatoes and chilli paste and cook through, stirring often until slightly reduced. Stand to one side.

Cook pasta according to instructions. When 3/4 done put frozen green beans and artichoke quarters in the pan too.

Once cooked drain, add olive oil and stir well. Then add sauce and stir to coat. Serve :-)

Can add cheezly or whatever grated over the top. Or a couple of tsp hemp or sesame seeds. A sprinkle of nori flakes is yummy (and if you are going to do that, then add 1tsp good miso to the sauce post cooking, but before you stir it into the pasta and vegetables).
