- Give me some nice Pasta recipes please
2nd proper carbonara, dead easy.
Home made pesto.
Knob of butter and grated parmesan.
Most tomato based sauces are good if you cook them for long enough, bung in the ingredientes and let simmer for a couple of hours. If you try and make them in a hurry they're crap.
Hungry now 🙂Posted 8 years agoalpine girlMember
Fry up sliced courgettes then add some crushed garlic for a bit at the end. In a glass mix up grated parmasen, olive oil and lemon juice (lots of all) with fresh garlic if possible, S&P. Mix the sauce into the cooked pasta then serve with the courgettes and garlic on top. Great for after biking as only takes as long as you need for the pasta.
Or fried courgette, onion, and garlic in a tomato sauce with mozzerella added just before it's finished so it starts to melt.
Fry garlic up then for a couple of minutes add smoked salmon and chopped rocket and a fair bit of S&P.Posted 8 years agoDaRC_LSubscriber
For 2 people:
2 packets of filled pasta, cook as per instructions
1 tub of cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
1 packet of Basil, chopped
1/2 packet of pine nuts, toasted (put in a frying pan on a low heat for about 5 minutes shaking, to turn, a couple of times to stop them burning)
Olive oil, Salt and Pepper to taste
Toss them all together once the pasta is cooked.Posted 8 years agomastiles_fanylionMember
Stoner – with you there. None of this creamy carbonara rubbish.
Another of my faves is Ikea meatballs with a tin of chopped tomatoes bunged over and cooked with herbs, onions, garlic, chili flakes and a splash of Worcester sauce.
Serve (as with all pasta) with REAL parmesan. Not pre-grated stuff out of a box.Posted 8 years agoalgarvebairnMember
Penne with Peas and Pancetta:
Fry some pancetta, garlic, chopped chilli (optional) and shallot for a bit then pour in a glass of wine. Let it reduce by half then add some dried oregano. Cook out for a bit then put in the pasta.

spagetti with meatballs
1lb minced pork
8 rashers of streaky bacon (smoked is ok if you fancy it)
1tsp ground fennel seeds
1tsp fresh ground pepper
as many chillis as you like
1/2 tsp of sugar
pinch of salt
you can blend all this in a food processor and you can replace the minced pork with belly and shoulder if you like
roll into small balls and then fry in batches, set aside once done in an oven proof dish
to make the sauce
3 cloves of garlic
1 small onion
1 tin of passata
1 tin of chopped tomatoes
1 glass of red wine
tsp of Oregano
pepper and salt to taste
fry the onion until translucent, add the garlic and fry for another 30 seconds, add wine, cook for another min, add everything else, simmer for a couple of minutes
poor this over the meatballs
put in oven for 30 mins on a high heat so that the top starts to catch a bit and everything is bubbling nicely
while this is doing cook spagetti
combine in bowls (recommend you put the pasta in first), get some parmasan and a bottle of Masi Amarone, enjoyPosted 8 years agonicko74Member
Spag bol: 2 tins tomatos, one small onion, 250g mince, one pepper.Posted 8 years ago
Chorizo pasta: preferably cooking chorizo, but either sort will do as long as it's not the sliced type. Fry gently with some garlic, add a tomato or some cherry tomatos, a pepper. Voila.
Nigel Slate has a good creamy spicy sausage one, too
Also, I found an interesting recipe recently: double cream, fresh prawns, chili sauce.midlifecrashesSubscriber
Spicy chorizo style whole sausage(lidl is good), sliced into 1/3" rounds, pop them in to poach in a glass of white wine or two. Meanwhile gently fry a medium onion or a few shallots, medium chopped. Add a tin of tomatoes or passata, a cup of fresh or frozen peas and the sausage with the wine. Salt and black pepper. Serve with Conchiglie or Fusilli.Posted 8 years agochakapingSubscriber
OK, I don't normally let this one out, but because you said please…
Orecchiette pasta (100g per person)
Quite a lot of olive oil (not too bitter)
1 small/med clove garlic, finely chopped
Good amount of pecorino cheese, grated roughly or cut into slivers
1 cup frozen peas (or fresh in season if you grown your own)
1 cup frozen broad beans (ditto)
Small handful of chopped mint
Few twists black pepper
Cook pasta in one pan, veg in another – strain both and combine with other ingredients in the big pan
Add more oil or cheese to taste once served
One of my fave meals. Very refreshing and different – and really easy. Goes lovely with a dry reisling or semillon.Posted 8 years agodusty trailsSubscriber
Yeah I'm with Jimmy! "Whore's" spaghetti although i prefere it with penne.
Smoked Salmon, sauteed shallots, pickled green peppercorns, a little rosemary, parmesan & creme. TOTALLY Fantastic
Sautee shallots in a little butter & olive oil
Add rosemary & peppercorns
Then last add shredded smoked salmon
Stir into Penne or similar & serve with more parmesan!! & a nice red!!
