I still wasn’t quite sure where I was going with it, so I just totally blagged it, hence the name
The other evening mr i asked for something plain because he was feeling a bit grotty and didn’t feel like anything too fancy, I had a piece of turbot in the freezer so I baked it in the oven for him and served it with peas and jersey royals.
I decided to take the opportunity and have pasta, I wanted to use up some of the giant penne I’d bought for the al forno dish I made a while ago, I had some prosciutto, mozzarella and frozen spinach that I could use it in, but even as I started I still wasn’t quite sure where I was going with it, so I just totally blagged it, hence the name
I softened the spinach in a pan with some oil, added some cherry tomatoes.
chucked in some Parmesan dipper from the oil and vinegar shop, then remember I had some pasta sauce in the freezer which I hastily defrosted in the microwave and added that to it, once it had cooked out a little I put the cooked penne and some of it’s water in, gave it a good mix up
and then added the mozzarella
I served it up with the prosciutto on top, I crisped that up in the oven and some Parmesan ..
and despite thinking it was going to be a bit naff, I surprised myself, it was bloody gorgeous.
I did a garlic ciabatta
and was really glad I’d made it.
