Blue cheese and brocolli, possibly with some walnuts/pine kernels.
Helps to add some creme fraesche (can't remember the spelling).

Basil Pesto with chicken/steak/shrimp/whatever

You will need:

Pesto (pre-made, unless you have a burr mixer and all the other ingredients for it)
Mushrooms
Tomato
Cream based sauce
Cooking wine
Parm/romano cheese
Canola oil
Whatever meats you want to add
Basil
Farfalle pasta

Cook the canola oil until the stretch marks appear, then cook your meat about 2/3 of the way through. Add your veggies, stir for a while and toss together. Add about an ounce of the cooking wine, 3 ounces of cream and 3 of pesto, sprinkle in cheese as well. Maybe eyeball it in case those proportions are off. Once the sauce starts to fisheye, add your pasta, and toss for 10-15 seconds.

Serve, sprinkle a bit more cheese, and enjoy.

Courgette, tomatoes, black olives, lentils, mushrooms and chilli (not too much chilli mind) all fried up in a dabble of oil. Add spaghetti and stir up with lots of pesto and some tomato purée. Sorted. Also good cold, so you could cook in bulk. Can be brilliant lunch box food.

EDIT: Add in lentils with the pasta actually. Easier and better.

Also, HAVE PEPPER. And spinach too. Add these two. They're fucking wonderful and I don't know how I forgot them. Pepper is wonderful to help add in some crunch.

Heat up black olives and kidney beans (if you look, a can and a jar of each could cost you 50p, and that's more than enough). Heating up the olives can help get the brine off them if you buy them in brine. (Which you should do, darn cheaper.) Have pasta tubes. For a sauce, use cheap passata and purée in somewhat equal amounts for a nice consistency. Spice with cinnamon, turmeric and chilli powder.

Oh, I'm actually vegan. I buy green pesto without the cheese which is marketed towards vegans. Even though I used to absolutely adore cheese, I actually prefer it. Even if I went back to being veggie and was given the option, I'd choose the vegan green pesto. I actually think it's nicer. If you find any, try nabbing some.

Get this:



And put on penne or fusili (or any noodle of your choice). Not exactly a dish per se, but that's the best pasta sauce you'll ever have. Specifically the vodka sauce.

**** it, can we have a food thread? I could even write up a recipe for my red wine bean and potato stew with vegetable cous cous. It's the fanciest meal I've ever invented and is pretty damn nifty.

Right, you guys might be able to help me with this: Mum used to do all kinds of weird stuff to make plain tomato passata taste nice. But I don't have her home-made spice-paste thing, so whenever I make basic pasta+passata, the sauce has that kinda bitter taste.

How do I cut that bitterness? Dad recommended frying in onions, but that adds hassle.

I don't know where that 'bitterness' comes from. That's odd.

I'd recommend using oregano and cinnamon. Cinnamon is surprisingly handy for lots of things, including curries. If you get the proportions right, cinnamon, tumeric and chilli can be pretty cool. But oregano too. I forgot to mention oregano in my second recipe.

You really can't go wrong with a little cinnamon, chilli powder and oregano though. For probably £2 you could get some chilli powder, oregano and cinnamon and that'd do the job and last you for ages. (Just stick with supermarket brands.) Chilli powder gives a nice extra bite.

Oregano is brilliant with any heated cheeses too. Add a sprinkle onto pizza for example.

And aye, been vegan for over a year.

EDIT: If you're ever really feel the financial bite, basics passata, kidney beans and pasta (with whatever spices you wanna get away with) is ridiculously fucking cheap. We're talking around 30p a meal.

EDIT again: Cheap pasta can also be given more taste and a better consistency when you literally make a sauce using both that and tomato purée. It's a cheaper way of getting a good, cheap pasta sauce.

No matter what you do, you can't go wrong with olive oil, parmesan cheese and green pesto.

I don't really follow recipes when I cook as I usually just mix whatever seems like a good idea at the moment, but my last pasta was something like this;

Chop up chicken breast, marinate with salt, pepper, chili and garlic, then fry
Spaghetti, mix in green pesto when done
Sprinkle parmesan cheese on top
Some salad with tomatoes and olives and feta cheese and whatever

And it was delicious.
When some stranger on the internet says it is so, it must be so.

Shrimp scampi, nigga. Get the pre-cooked shrimp, so you don't have to worry if you **** it up. Sautee that in a frying pan with some peppers, onions, a little garlic, a little butter or olive oil, use a low heat so you have time to do the rest of it. Boil yo noodlez until they're al dente or however you like them, then toss them in with the shrimp and shit and sautee the whole thing. The noodles will theoretically develop a sort of brown scald where they're touching the pan, which means they're ready to go. Stir that shit up with a little lemon juice, if you feel like it, melt some cheese on top of it with some basil, whatever. BAM. Easy shrimp scampi. It's surprisingly hard to get wrong.
#29
Boil chicken breasts for 40 minutes, boil noodles of your chose for 15, I recomend those tube penne ragoti or w/e, then throw the noods in a glass pan, idk, 15x8 or some shit, then pour alfredo all over those noodles, then throw in the chicken breast, cover it all in mozzarella cheese, bake at 350 for 10 minutes.

Eat the **** outta it.

Add Parmesan or crispy biscuit pieces for breading if it feels right.


Edit:

here's something my friends and I do.

LACHOS

cook lasagna noodles for 10 minutes, cut up into squares, fill bowl with pasta sauce, dip noodles in sauce as you like, like nachos.

I like to use a tomato sauce where I add ginger, basil, parsley flakes, chili powder, Mrs. Dash, and squeeze the juice out of a couple of orange slices. Makes for some pretty tasty farfalle.

So, proper cheese sauce, which is actually easier than most people think, and tastes so much better.

Melt butter and add chopped onion into a pan, cook until transluscent. Add a spoon of flour, mix well, keep over heat, but mix so that it doesn't stick, this is to cook the flour. Add milk. A splash at first, it will go all hard, just keep mixing, it's all in the wrist action (tee hee hee). Add milk a little at a time, add more milk when the milk has been cooked through. When you get a velvety textured sauce (a roux), add cheese of your choice, to your amounts etc, make sure cheese is melted, and bam, you have a REAL cheese sauce. Add to Pasta. Or add stuff to the cheese sauce, vegetables, meat, whatever you want really.
