Open ravioli

Cooking has become a little trickier since we started our kitchen work. Although we do still have a functioning cooker and sink (for now), we have packed away most of our kitchen items and just have one or two of the most frequently used things still out. It has been strange just eating things out of the freezer and buying as we go along, because we’re usually quite organised when it comes to planning meals! And I don’t think I realised just how much time we spend (and enjoy) cooking until we couldn’t really do it as much! This is a recipe I found when I Googled ‘what can I make with 100g feta?’ to be able to use it up. It’s quick to make and is healthy too, which is just what we need at the moment!

I was quite surprised when I looked through my blog posts earlier and discovered that I haven’t posted this recipe before – it is one of those ‘tried and tested’ ones that I’ve been making for years! In fact, my Mum used to make it when I was younger and it was one of the few things that I could actually cook when I left home to go to uni. You can use any pasta you like for this – macaroni works really well – but I used penne today. It was either that or our Simpsons pasta that Helen bought us – but you wouldn’t have recognised the Simpsons for the courgettes so we’re saving that for another day! Continue reading…
