Roasted Red Pepper and Tomato Orzo Pasta with Feta

Sometimes there's nothing better than a big bowl of pasta after a long day. As a student, however, eating pasta and tomato sauce day after day can get a little bit dull. Orzo pasta is great for making a more interesting, but comfortingly familiar, dinner. Its a little bit like risotto rice ( orzo means … Continue reading Roasted Red Pepper and Tomato Orzo Pasta with Feta

Simple Lentil Bolognese

I've been really enjoying cooking my lentil bolognese this week, bolognese sauce in general reminds me of home and has become a much needed comfort food for me recently.  Lentils also have a really meaty texture and take on plenty of flavour when cooked, making them the perfect candidate for a bolognese in place of … Continue reading Simple Lentil Bolognese

Patatas Bravas

Last summer I went to Barcelona with a group of my closest friends and I really enjoyed my time there, especially the food!

Although bruschetta is usually made using raw tomatoes, I've roasted them with red onions, garlic and olive oil to complement the paprika in the squash. … Continue reading Smokey Butternut Squash Bruschetta
