I realised yesterday whilst trawling through the recipes on the site that there are little/few recipes containing pasta. I wouldn’t mind, but it is something we eat most weeks and my children love it so I have no excuses. I know last week I also shared a recipe for salmon but it is on special offer in the store at the moment and is so much nicer when eaten fresh. Besides I had fish on my mind and there’s no changing when you’ve been thinking of a recipe for a couple of days.
This is my healthy take on a regular, creamy pasta sauce as there are only nourishingly great ingredients packed in here. The sauce instead of being made with double cream is made up of natural yogurt and milk along with my babies favourite cheese – Tipperary Blue. Oscar has the most unusual love for ‘smelly cheeses’. It happened one day while he was sitting on my knee, he reached out and took one of my crackers with Roquefort and before I could even grab it from it, he had shoved it in his mouth. I really didn’t expect a reaction of pleasure because Roquefort is quite pungent and strong especially for little tastebuds, but nope, Oscar didn’t think that. He loved it! Like really loved it. Now we have to hide the cheese in the fridge because the moment he see’s it, thats it, goodbye cheese!
The prawns are particularly nice in this dish, however for Oscars little bowl I cut them up for him and mixed through the pasta. It just puts my own mind at ease. If you don’t want to use prawns then by all means you can leave them out. I bought freshly cooked organic prawns in our local supermarket but you can also buy the frozen ones too which can be cooked as per the pack instructions prior to using.
I love the colour of this dish and it feels so fancy when it’s put on the table (even though it is super quick and easy to make). There was a lot of wow’s and ouuus from the kids and no left-overs! So much for tomorrows lunch!
I hope you all love it and i’m really looking forward to seeing your creations!!!
Happy happy Friday (yeah it’s the weekend!)
