Smoked Bacon and Creamy Pea Pasta
A real winner with the kids! The recipe was adapted from one by Jamie Oliver in 'Ministry of Food' - a bargain buy in the sales.
Another unintended purchase on my recent shopping trip was Jo Pratts 'In the Mood for Food' -has anyone else got this one? Having had a quick flick through there seem to be some lovely recipes in it and I'm going to try out a few of the lunch ideas this week.
