Monday Meal Ideas: The comfort of pasta and noodles

Looks like we have another blast of cold weather about to hit us here – last week it was MISERABLE with freezing winds and below zero temps for days and thankfully the forecast is saying that tomorrow we will have some rain! Oh how we need it! The idea of a day of solid, drenching rain sounds like absolute heaven…let’s hope it arrives!

With the cold weather comes cravings for warm pastas and soups packed with noodles. Last week I made my chicken and veggie soup which was delicious and very popular over the weekend as so many people made it. I have saved the step by step guide over on my Instagram stories highlights under soup if you ever need it.

Here are some of my favourite pasta & noodle recipes for your inspiration this week. From bubbling lasagnes to quick in the pan flash pastas and soups.

How’s your week ahead looking? I am going to FLAT out with the annual village ball that is on Saturday night that Lucy and I are organising. It’s this time in the process that I start to FREAK out that it’s going to be a disaster and how will it work etc etc…but I will remain calm and look at it like a dinner party at home, just on a bigger scale and hopefully it will all work out! It always does…disasters too.

Hope you guys have a great week ahead. Let’s hope for some rain, calm and focused minds and success in whatever it is you have been working hard on. Have a good one friends x

    Another fabulous round of Monday meal ideas! Thanks Beth. Even though it’s not Monday, I’m going to roll out a pasta dish tonight. It just seems the right kind of thing to be eating fireside at this time of year. I usually chuck in some bacon, onion, garlic (perfect to help ward off the winter lurgies!), some baked pumpkin (as I’ve usually got some pumpkin hanging about) all with a dash of cream…and maybe a splash of white wine, if there’s a bottle open…or I feel the need to open one đŸ˜‰
    Enjoy the rest of your week lovely lady!
    xx
