Pasta is often referred to as “comfort food”. Food that somehow reminds you of childhood, good times and lifts your spirits. I don’t know if I would say that about this Pasta Arrabbiata with Salsiccia here. This dish does have quite a bit of “kick” from the chili. I’m not sure I would have appreciated this as a kid ;P Quite the opposite of today… give me a plate of this spicy pasta and I’m more than happy!
Gnocchi are great to prepare a delicious dinner quickly, easy, and cheap. These little potato packages are available pre-made and cooled in supermarkets. Add some veggies and a sauce and you got yourself a delicious meal. These gnocchi with broccoli, mushrooms, and browned butter are a simple dish that is ready in no time and will fill you up nicely. As it should be ;P
I guess you ended up here because you were looking for something delicious that can be served quickly. Right?! ;) Well… you clicked the right link! Gnocchi are always a good idea for a quick and easy weeknight dinner. They are available (ready-to-use) in most supermarkets and usually only need to be heated briefly – either in a pot with boiling water or directly in a frying pan. I prefer the preparation in a frying pan. Makes everything even easier. These creamy Gnocchi with Chorizo, Sun-dried Tomatoes, and Spinach, for example, are a simple “one-pan-dish” that’s ready in less than 30 minutes.
Dinner does not have to be complicated. We love a quick and easy dinner… for example, made with gnocchi. For that reason, we normally have a package of pre-made gnocchi from the store in the fridge. You can do a lot with these potato dumplings and in most cases, the preparation is done in no time! Same for this delicious Easy Chorizo Gnocchi Pan here. Spain meets Italy and everyone is happy about it ;)
Working with leftover food is an essential part of food preparation when you want to save some money and maybe do something good for the environment. Just throwing stuff away the next day because you do not want to eat the same thing twice is stupid (sorry if I say that so bluntly). You can always change things up and make something new with what you had the day before. The best example here – this One-Pot Orzo with leftover Roasted Chicken. An easy recipe that is ready in no time and absolutely delicious!
I like me a good salad. Especially in summer when it’s warm outside. The time of year when you want to spend as little time as possible in the (warm) kitchen ;) Isn’t it much better to spend the time outside on the terrace or in the garden? You can prepare your dinner outside as well… on a grill, for example. Who would have thought it ;P For this simple Italian Pasta Salad you have to plan a little kitchen time though because – unless you can cook some pasta on your grill. Some of these big boys can do that, right? ;)
Hi, my name is Marc. I'm a graphic designer.
I love my job, but in between I love to bake and try new things in the kitchen. A lot of my friends and colleagues encourage me to bake - for a very simple reason: they get the leftovers - and it seems they like it most of the time ;)
