Not much better than a one-pot pasta recipe that hits all of our favourite things on one go. Golden grilled chicken, salty bacon and garlicky cream sauce. It uses the one-pot method, meaning that your pasta is cooked right in with the sauce making sure the noodles soak up all that creamy garlicky goodness, and you only have 1 pan to wash up! You're welcome!

Look, I know that so many people think that minimal ingredients mean boring cooking and no flavour. If you're one of those people then

Is there anything more comforting than a pasta bake? Well, maybe, if we used cheese stuffed pasta in a rich and creamy tomato sauce and then baked the whole thing over with even more golden bubbling cheese. Maybe that would be more comforting! This baked tortellini is kinda like a hearty lasagna, but for people who only have 30 minutes and really can't be bothered layering anything! It's about simple pasta, people. Nothing else!

Okay. For my mushroom haters, look away now. For my mushroom lovers, we need to talk! I know you think, what makes this creamy mushroom pasta so special? Well, it's creamy, but uses single cream so you don't get that typical cream sauce heaviness. And it only uses one type of mushrooms saving you from spending the fortune that is the "wild mixed mushrooms". The key thing to note here is to take your time in letting those mushrooms go really golden. That's where all the flavour comes in!

Date night, but make it at home! This prawn pasta is a little fancy. That's what happens to anything you put prawns on! But still so easy. Straight forward enough to make at home, but fancy enough to crack open a bottle of good wine and maybe dress up a little. It is date night after all! This is a tomato-based pasta sauce but if you really want to make it indulgent feel free to add a little splash of cream to the sauce.
