One of the things I want to do in 2016 is to make greater use of our cookbooks. We have about a dozen lined up in the kitchen and whilst I love looking through them I very rarely try out the recipes, which is silly!
So two weeks ago, I rooted through the books for inspiration for tea and ended up picking ‘Carbonara, Marinara, Napolitana: A Cook’s Book of Pasta’. Which by the way is on Amazon for 21p!
After a quick flick through I decided to do fusilli with ham and broccoli.
Then fry up some ham steaks, cut into strips and add some spring onions.
Then I added in mushrooms, garlic, broccoli, parsley and double cream. The double cream does stop this meal from being super healthy but it does make it very, very tasty!
I really enjoyed using our recipe books and was looking forward to trying out more recipes….and then the next day my waters broke and I haven’t cooked a meal since! Think it may be a while untilll the next Cathy’s Kitchen post!
