Find out how to turm this store cupboard staple into delicious midweek meals for all the family.
My recipe for bolognese is rich in flavour and uses beef mince only. But it also comes with a subtle yet tasty twist: the inclusion of chilli and chocolate. Guaranteed to get the family asking what you’ve done differently!
Macaroni Cheese with Soft Boiled Eggs. That great family classic, with a little twist. The twist being soft-boiled eggs sitting on the top. Eggs and macaroni are delicious together. You need to make a Bechamel sauce for this recipe (you can see me make that elsewhere on the site).
This has got to be the easiest pasta dish in the world. Most people have an onion, a packet of pasta, a piece of bacon, some tomato paste and – the secret ingredient – Knorr Touch of Taste.
This recipe is inspired by the way Italians cook their seafood – flavoured with olive oil, garlic, a touch of chilli and dry white wine. Simple but very good.
I build up my version of this classic dish by adding the ingredients in stages. It begins with dissolving Knorr Stock Pots into the pasta cooking water to give extra flavour to the spaghetti.
Ever since I was a boy, spaghetti and meatballs has been one of my favourite dinners. It’s based on a classic Italian pomodoro (tomato sauce), which you can see me make on this site. Make the meatballs a few hours in advance to give time for the garlic to infuse and for the meatballs to set.
So, what can you do with a bolognese sauce? Very simple, a lasagne. And, by making your bolognese sauce, Bechamel and tomato sauce in advance, this cuts down the cooking and preparation time.
For a lighter pasta sauce, try this version made with spinach leaves, pine nuts and Knorr Chicken Stock.
Pasta, veg and cheese are a classic combination and this dish makes for a filling and warming meal that’s really quick to cook up.
