Big pasta shells or cannelloni make a great easy dinner, especially when served with crusty bread and a green salad.
This pasta dish takes its inspiration from the classic bacon, lettuce and tomato (BLT) sandwich. It's healthy and comforting and only takes minutes.
This chicken and bacon pasta bake is a very cheap and filling meal that is very easy to make. Ideal for during the week for the busy family.
Freshly sliced leeks are sauteed in the juices of fried streaky bacon. A roux and some feta are added to form a delicious sauce. Serve with your favourite pasta.
