Okay, so I recently saw a video on YouTube on how to make Italian only using $10. I thought it looked actually pretty decent so I gave it a go! ( I have linked the video at the bottom of the blog post).
Now what was included in the video, it can be adjusted depending on where you live. For example, I don’t live in America I live in Britain so the names of the products or the brand changed. But here is the recipe, just adjust it for yourself!
480g jar of Lasagna creamy, white sauce
480g jar of Tomato pasta sauce
400-500g of Turkey mince
226g of shredded mozzarella.
Salt and Pepper
Start by boiling your pasta in a big pan. Then in a frying pan, start cooking your mince, sprinkle your seasoning.
Once your pasta has been fully cooked, empty into a big mixing bowl. Add the fully cooked mince and the two jars of sauce and mix it all together.
Using a spoon, spoon it all into a big glass dish and sprinkle the mozzarella on top. Whack it into the oven at 170C or 350F for 15-20 mins.
Dish up and enjoy with salad and some garlic bread!!
So not that long ago, me and my friends, (following the rules set by the government), we had a Japanese themed day. We had Japanese snacks, drinks and sometimes music too. But we also enjoyed making different popular foods from their culture and the regions in Japan.
Among the many of the yummy delights we made was a Soba Noodle Salad. It was really easy and quick to make. Soba noodles are made from buckwheat and can be served hot or cold, we decided to serve our delicious salad cold. Excellent thing about soba noodles is that they are Vegan & Vegetarian friendly therefore are a nice alternative to Ramen noodles. They are also a good source of magnesium and fibre.
So, I will stop ranting on and give you the recipe for the:
You start with making the dressing. Combine the vegetable oil, sesame oil, and the crushed peppers into a small saucepan. Then, over a medium heat, whisk and infuse this mix together.
Add the honey and soy sauce. Whisk together until the honey is dissolved. Set aside to cool. Now prepare the vegetables!
If you have already prepared the vegetables before you started cooking, well done on being organised haha! If not do not worry, you have time to do it now while the sauce is cooling down.
Once you have prepared the veg, you need to boil the soba noodles in a big pan for 4 – 5 minutes, then rinse them under cold water to remove starch and it stops them overcooking
Once the noodles are cooled and no longer dripping, add the vegetables you prepared earlier and then mix in the beautiful sauce. I would recommend serving immediately so that your vegetables do not go soggy as a result from the sauce.
And that’s it! Very easy to make and so refreshing too. Perfect for a nice summers lunch with the family, or even just for yourself. I know personally I could have eaten the entire lot!
