Magic Kale and Tomato Spaghetti (4)

This is super quick to cook and called ” magic” spaghetti because you cook the pasta and sauce all together in a frying pan. The trick is to measure your water carefully and use a large shallow pan with a lid wide enough to fit the pasta lying down. You might need to add a bit more water as you go but start with the amount suggested and only add more if absolutely necessary.. It’s from ” A Modern Way to Cook” by Anna Jones.

Orecchiette with Cauliflower and Pine Nuts (2)

Yesterday’s dinner was this most delicious cauliflower pasta recipe ( adapted for 2) from ” New Kitchen Basics” by Claire Thomson. Although by no means a vegetarian cookbook there are so many recipes for vegetarians in this book that i am cooking from it several times a week at the moment. You can use any short pasta such as conchiglie, rigatoni or fusilli but the orecchiette holds the sauce well. You can also use the cauliflower mix as a topping for bruschetta.
