Easy Pasta Dishes Please!

For those that are new to this blog, I am attempting to turn from Domestic Disgrace to Domestic Goddess in a year. Part of my journey involves learning to cook. I am quite proud of my accomplishments so far, having learnt to cook a chicken dish without a gloopy sauce and sausage hotpot. It did become apparent last week that I have a distinct lack of necessary equipment, so I will be asking Father Christmas for a frying pan and casserole dish this year. I’m sure as I go on, I will discover more and more things to add to the list.

My children love pasta. I can actually pull off a mean bacon and petite pois pasta dish and have decided to share this one and only mastered recipe with you later in the week. Brace yourself, there will be no technical terms to be seen, but I would love to see what you think. Apart from this recipe, I am most unadventurous with pasta. I can cook spaghetti bolognese using a jar of good old Dolmio, but that’s it.

So hit me with you favourite pasta recipes. They don’t have to be new ones, any will do. Please take into account my lack of skill and understanding of technical terms though. If there is anything that might need explaining to a novice, please leave a note in the comments.

Feel free to grab the badge code, or mention in your post that you are linking up to Domestic Disgrace, and I will give your recipe a nice little Tweet!

I’m looking forward to expanding my pasta menu!

  1. Olives Mac and Cheese

    Please take note there really are no measurements here.
    Cooked macaroni, either small shells, elbow, or a mixture of both.
    sour cream
    shredded cheese, white or yellow cheddar. How sharp the cheese is your choice.
    left over veggies such as peas, grean beans I use broccoli.

    You do not have to bake this. It is a one pot meal.
    Once you have drained the macaroni put it back into the pot and put back on to the burner. Burner should be on low.
    Put in the veggie of your choice and mix.
    mix 50% milk and sour cream and cheese into the pot. Note: how much milk and sour cream you use depends on the amount of pasta and how creamy you want.
    stir until the cheese has melted.
    If you want it creamier then add more milk or sour cream.
    Once all is mixed salt and pepper to taste.
    If you have left over meat, dice or shred finely.
    If you like your food a bit spicey you can use;
    Pepper Jack cheese

  2. Making the sauce for a spaghetti bolognese is a great one to master, as you can then use the basics of the sauce to make cottage pie or lasagne :-) It’s also a good one to sneak veggies in if you have any fussy eaters! Good luck with your next challenge :-)
    PS I suggest you tell Father Christmas that tefal frying pans are pretty awesome! They’re a little more expensive but such good quality they last years longer than cheaper ones :-)
