Three Different Ways Using Pasta

  • The great thing about pasta is that you can tailor make your own cheese or or other delicious topping. Their are a host of cheeses that come in different flavours so you can be as creative as you wish. Parmesan always is a good choice and is used a lot in Italian cuisine.
  • Crumble some cheddar cheese biscuits on top of your pasta dish before baking it in the oven. Great crunchy dimension to add to a normal everyday pasta recipe!

A Pasta Or Noodle Salad Is So Tasty!

  • I watched a noodle salad being made on T. V. once and after watching it became a fan of simple noodle salads.
  • The one that I remember was made with thin noodles, soy sauce, honey, cashew nuts and chives. These salads became a hit with the business people who wanted a light but nutritious snack.
  • The addition of small shrimps or chicken made this a tasty treat.
  • Sesame seeds were also sprinkled over some of these salads.

Wonderful Garlic!

Most people love to eat this delicious pungent bulb..me included! By the way I was reading in my nutrition almanac that garlic has many health benefits and that it is a wonder food. That is always encouraging to hear...especially if you love to eat it. Lowering cholestrol and reducing blood pressure are one of it's many beneficial qualities. Here are some ways that I love to prepare it it in our menu.

  • Of course I love making a wonderful long loaf of garlic bread in the oven with a lovely crust. I first wrap it in silver foil after cutting and spreading each slice of french loaf with garlic butter. In the last five minutes I open up the foil to enable the crispiness of the crust to form.


  • Also enjoy the combination of garlic and oregano with tomato paste and chopped tomatoes , as one of the ingredients, for my pasta dishes. Goes well with spaghetti and tagliatelle too!


  • We buy Ina Paarman's garlic and feta creamy salad dressing and that gets ladled over everything, from avos to main dishes.
