Italian Sausage Soup

I have sort of a love hate relationship with soups that have pasta in it. To me, once you add pasta to a soup it becomes more of a stew because the starch would thicken the broth and suck up all the liquid. I like more liquids than chunks of ingredients. But this soup, I […]

Spaghetti Bolognese

Now this was what the fuss was all about, making that marinara sauce from scratch and all. Spaghetti bolognese is probably the most eaten pasta in my house….I guess initially the kids and hubster tolerated it because they love my garlic bread (garlic bread is a must with bolognese), but of course I try to […]

Base Tomato Sauce (Improved)

I have posted a base marinara sauce recipe before but over the years I tweaked it a bit here and there to make the best version possible, in my opinion, to suit my family’s taste. To be honest, we like to eat spaghetti bolognese a lot…and previously I was not able to get that meat […]

Baked Pasta with Spinach

  Initially I had not intended to ever blog about this dish….ever! Cos for one, it’s not the most attractive looking dish, and secondly it’s all just put together from scraps here and there that I found in the fridge and was trying to come up with some other baked dishes to do rather than […]

Alla Norma Bake – Repost

Yesterday marks the end of Chinese New Year, so it’s almost back to the normal flow of meals. Starting with something less Asian. 🙂 I think pasta bake dishes are one of those forgiving dishes or more like, you can just bake anything with it and it will turn out edible. It is very homey, […]

Baked Pasta

Okay, today I’m feeling a bit better and more enthusiastic about writing again. Yesterday was Mother’s Day and hubster brought us all out for a Western dinner. But I’m reminded of my own mother and the sort of Western dishes she would make for us. My mom doesn’t cook Western very much, but I remember […]

Tuscan Bean Soup

Bean soup….hmmm, I don’t really get the concept of bean soup because for us here in Malaysia, that’s more of a hot dessert thing. But I’m game to try anything Italian because I find sometimes the name sounds fancier and harder than it really is. The weather is a bit wonky these days. It gets […]

Eat More Vege – Parsley and Rocket Pesto

I have never made pesto before and I must confess that I’m not a real fan of the basil ones. Rocket is my favourite salad and I thought I could do somewhat of a pesto version with that instead. There has been cases where pine nuts have been known to give that metallic after-taste lately […]

Eat More Vege – Ratatouille

What would vege week be if I didn’t make that well-beloved vege stew? One of my favourite vege is aubergine…..big, fat, round aubergines. Prep correctly, the aubergine tastes good in anything. I have even seen Jamie Oliver (below) make an aubergine chocolate dessert (not sure if I find that appetising but it was drowning in […]

Hot Italian Sausage…..mix & Spaghetti and Meatballs

***WARNING; This post contains images of raw meat. If you’re squimish, turn away now. Did I mention how much I love Southern food? Well, I do…although technically, I have never tasted like real, authentic Southern food (eg; southern fried chicken, collard greens, shrimp and grits, cornbread, anything Cajun or Creole), but just reading about it or […]
