Dinner for One – Mushroom & Thyme Pasta Category: Recipes

On the rare occasion I have to make dinner for one, I’ll often opt for a cheeky little creamy mushroom pasta type dinner as Anthony isn’t a fan of the humble mushroom.

Tonight we were supposed be enjoying sausages from Hollies Farm Shop in Northwich (a new discovery when we bought a new car from the area a week or so ago).

However, Anthony had to have a tooth out this afternoon so wasn’t up for anything but soup and with sausages on the intended menu, that certainly means he really couldn’t eat anything.

Back to the mushrooms though. Every time I make something like this it is just thrown together at the drop of a hat, no recipe in sight. Tonight’s was quite delicious & I thought it about time I share (& post!).


Mushroom & Thyme Pasta for One

  • 6 Chestnut mushrooms
  • 1/2 small white onion, chopped
  • Sprig of fresh thyme
  • 2 Tablespoons low fat creme fraiche
  • Pasta

Chickpea and Spinach Curry with Homemade Naans Category: Recipes

Prompted by a comment on Jules blog about her Bombay Chicken Masala I went searching for the Chickpea Curry in Sarah Raven’s Garden Cookbook. The recipe actually calls for Kale but I didn’t fancy that yesterday so swapped with some Spinach. It was creamy and full of flavour and something I cant wait to cook again.
