My meals are always simple and easy. I always try to prepare things before I go to work or during the week end. Even pasta can be cooked a day ahead. So I come home and assemble everything together in few minutes. Most of the time they are one pot meals. But I always try to give my family a well balanced diet.

You can always use the left overs from the Sunday roast to a meal like this. As it a creamy and a tasty dish kids will love this too. Try this and let me know too. I have written the descriptions with the picture for easy understanding. Always get this as an idea and create your own. Thats why I didn’t write the measurements.  I like more veggies than pasta. you can do it the other way with more pasta and less veggies.

Bon Appétit!

Wash and slice several mushrooms, shred roast chicken (Left overs from a roast can used here), White part of the leeks. Prepare them on a plate . You can always do this before and leave in fridge to take when you want.

I am using some fresh spinach. You can use kale or asian greens.

 

03-P1040962-001
Finely slice some onion (I used 1/2 of a large onion) and several cloves of garlic. I find that garlic gives a nice aroma to this recipe.

I used two stock cubes for extra flavour, salt and pepper for the spices.

 

06-P1040966-001
Boil the pasta and leave to drain.

After I studied about baking and hospitality management.<br /> My son is very enthusiastic in video editing and wanted me to start recording my cooking.Thats the beginning of you tube channel “The Culinary Corner”<br /> I am a full time employee. I record all the videos by my self.<br /> As a child I started helping and cooking with my granny and I used to experiment and trying various cooking styles. That led me in this path very smoothly. I still try to experiment and adjust recipes to move with this busy and globalised world.</p>
