Hello and happy Wednesday! We are halfway through the working week, and today I took my first ever customer calls in my new job, it was both petrifying and exciting at the same time, but it went fairly all right, and I like to think I was of a little help ^ ^
How are you doing? And will you be celebrating Easter or just the coming of Spring in general? A couple of my friends and myself included seems to have been doing some Spring cleaning recently, it just seems like it is some biological instinct that kicks in.
But after work today I was beat! So I rattled up an easy-peasy dinner and then I made myself some home made marzipan, cause marzipan is something they eat a lot of at this time of year in Norway, but it isn't AS easy to get a hold of here in Glasgow. The recipe for that will pop up here in the near future, so stay tuned! For now though, let's make a pasta dish!
1 cup uncooked wholewheat pasta
1 tbsp oil
1 medium onion, chopped
1 fat garlic clove, finely chopped
4 quorn chicken-style fillets, or 2 chicken breasts, diced
A dash liquid smoke (optional)
Salt and pepper
2 roasted peppers, chopped (optional)
A good splash of white balsamic vinegar or white wine vinegar
Half a bunch of parsley, chopped (about 1/2 cup)
- Start by cooking the pasta according to the instructions, in some lightly salted water.
- Now, in a frying pan, heat up the oil and brown the quorn/chicken along with the onion and garlic. If using meat, make sure before serving that it is cooked through.
- Once browned, add salt, pepper, and liquid smoke, as well as the roasted pepper (if using), balsamic- or white wine vinegar, and parsley, mix through.
- Once the pasta is cooked, drain and chuck it into the pan with the other ingredients. Heat through and serve!
Enjoy, and have a lovely rest of the week! x
