Mexican Lasagne

Mexican Lasagne

      This lasagne has been part of our family’s food history for about the past 15 years and we’re still not tired of it! It’s one of my favourite easy dishes to make because all the preparation is done the night before. You can then come home the next day and all you […] Read more »

You can mix and match […] Read more »

It serves 2, but as you can see from the picture, we like large portions of mash, so you may well find that it feeds more in […] Read more »

Penne Marinara

      This is a great dish to make when you need to rely on what you already have in because it’s pretty much made up of store cupboard ingredients. Again, it’s probably not very authentic but I’m sure you’ll forgive me with flavours like these. The sweet red peppers make it a real […] Read more »
