Tomato Basil Pasta

1 bunch spring onions/scallions - sliced
10 tomatoes, nice and ripe - diced
Bunch of basil, at least a good handful of leaves - chopped
Fettucini or pasta of choice, gnocchi is great too
Butter (not oil or margarine, real butter)
Rock Salt and Ground Black Pepper to taste
Grated cheese

Saute spring onions in butter till softened, add diced tomatoes and simmer until tomato softens & breaks down, at least 15mins simmering. If your tomatoes arent very juicy and the sauce is drying up too much you can add some chicken stock or water to it. Add the basil and stir through, simmer another 5mins, season to taste and serve over pasta, sprinkle with grated cheese .

Two eggs, 1/2 tsp salt and as much flour as you can add. I knead them then roll them as thin as I can and cut into noodles. Then you just cook them in avout a quart of broth for about 30 min. Or till thick. You can also make them a main dish by adding meat cut into small pieces. We love them!!!

MerryBee's Like Mamma Made It Macaroni

Cook 8 oz macaroni and drain....al dente, not done
Preheat oven to 350 degrees & lightly grease a 2 Qt casserole dish.

Grate 12 oz...3 cups of cheddar cheese. This will be divided and added in three parts.

In a large bowl, mix:
2 Tblsp dry nonfat milk powder
2 Tblsp flour
2 Tblsp butter

Gradually add:
1 1/4 cups boiling water, beating constantly

Add: 1 1/2 cup of the cheese, beating until smooth and creamy.

Stir in macaroni

Gently add:
1 more cup of cheese
1/4 tsp salt

Transfer to a lightly greased 2 quart baking dish.
Cover with foil, and bake 25 minutes @ 350 degrees.

Remove foil, and sprinkle with:
1/2 cup remaining cheese.
Bake a minute or two until cheese melts. You can add last cup of cheese after baking macaroni for 20 minutes, if you like it browner.

Serves 8:

Singapore Noodles

Prep time 15mins
Cooking time 10mins

200g/ 1/2lb chicken sliced into about 1/2" thick and inch long pieces
2 tablespoons of curry powder (or less to suit taste, you can omit it totally and instead use just the chinese sauces mentioned below)
2 eggs (beaten)
1 red capsicum/bell pepper
1/4 - 1/2 cabbage sliced about 1/4" slices (we like lots of cabbage in ours)
bunch of spring onions sliced (I keep the softer leaf sections separate and add last, I put the sliced bulb parts in with the onion)
1 onion sliced
200g/ 1/2lb shrimp/prawns (Optional)
2 packets fine egg noodles (like the roman 2 minute instant noodles in thickness)
1 tablespoon lemon juice
salt to season
olive oil
sesame oil 1 teaspoon at least, more if you like the taste
soy sauce
*plum sauce 2 tble sp, oyster sauce 2 tble sp, sate sauce 2tbl sp - optional extra to add to stir fry mix just before putting lid on leaving it to simmer, really gives a yummy flavour. You could use just one of them, 2 or all three. You can use more than 2 tablespoon too, just a matter of personal taste, I just put a dollop in, I dont measure)

Place a pot of water on the stove to boil for the noodles.
Mix chicken slices and curry powder (I pop it all into a freezer or zip lock bag and mix it well ensuring chicken is coated) Heat oil in large pan or wok, stir fry the chicken for a few minutes until almost done then pour the beaten egg in and keep stirring till well mixed. Pull the chicken out of the pan, add a little more olive oil if necessary and then saute onions and spring onion bulbs, add in capsicum/bell pepper, cabbage & shrimp/prawns. Stir fry for a 3-4mintues then add a dash of soy sauce and pop the lid on turning the heat down some so that it simmers lightly and the veges finish cooking without frying anymore.
Cook noodles, they usually only take 3-5mins, drain and then add to stir fry and mix well.

This recipe freezes successfully and makes up a good amount. You can make less by simply using one bag of noodles. You can add other veges too like zuchinni etc chef

Here is a photo of the batch I made for dinner last night

White Bean (Cannelloni) & Spinach Pasta Sauce

1 package gnocchi (17.5 oz) (I used shell pasta as I dont like gnocchi)

1 can diced tomatoes with Italian seasonings (15 oz) ** (I used fresh chopped tomatoes and added italian herb mix and dried basil)

1 can cannellini beans (white beans), rinsed and drained

1 medium onion, diced

a few cloves of garlic, minced (I used 4)

1/2 c. part skim mozzarella cheese, grated

1/4 c. parmesan cheese, grated

2-3 c. baby spinach **(I sliced up lots of fresh chard/spinach for mine)

butter and olive oil to saute

** I added chicken stock powder too

salt and pepper to taste



1. Heat up about 1 tbsp olive oil in a skillet. Add the gnocchi, tossing often. Cook until gnocchi are browned and puffed (about 8 minutes). Remove gnocchi and reserve in a separate bowl.

2.Saute onion & garlic slowly on low heat until it becomes translucent. Add beans and tomatoes. Bring to a simmer, season with herbs, salt and pepper to taste. Simmer on low-med heat till tomatoes are cooked and sauce has reduced down (*I added extra tomato juice to mine as I needed extra liquid)

3. Stir in gnocchi and spinach. (**I stirred spinach through and put lid on till it wilted then served over pasta, I didnt melt the cheese over the top like they say I served it with it.) Top everything with mozzarella and parmesan. Cover and cook until cheese is melted.

4. I made my sauce and then served it over shell pasta. I have also frozen batches of sauce for later use.

Here is a photo of my pot of sauce cooking chef2

Make a batch for yourself Sewn, freeze what you dont need so you have meals in credit for yourself, make him something else. It doesnt make too much sauce so you wouldnt be stuck with it for years, a cup a serve I reckon there is maybe 4 cups to a batch
