Wow, my 250th post already! To celebrate, here is a recipe for an awesome dish of comfort food: Fettuccine, chicken and fresh spinach covered with a glossy, creamy, and (very) garlicky alfredo sauce. Continue reading “Fettuccine Alfredo with Chicken and Spinach”
This was the pièce de résistance from the Ad Hoc At Home cookout that Koen and I had in December: Beef Stroganoff.
Inspired by a recipe I found over at Tastes Lovely, I made a fabulous oven-bake with pan-fried broccoli, chicken, farfalle pasta and a delicious homemade creamy alfredo sauce. Continue reading “Broccoli & Chicken Pasta Alfredo Oven-bake”

Squash is pretty versatile. Oven roasting, a mash, a hearty soup or as part of a risotto? Been there, done that. Using squash as a basis for a pasta sauce? A definite must try!!

This recipe from the Plenty More cookbook is based on a dish from Danielle Postma, a South African chef who worked with Ottolenghi in the UK.
