Large Handful of Basil (from Natoora)
100g Buffalo Mozzarella (from Natoora)

250g Fusilli
Handful of leftover roast chicken
Parmesan, grated
Rocket to garnish (from Natoora)

Method:
Step 1: Make sauce - fry onion and garlic until soft, add wine and vinegar and fry until evaporated. Add tomatoes, chilli flakes, Sugar, Salt and Pepper and simmer for 1 hour. Add torn basil leaves and mozzarella
Step 2: Meanwhile cook pasta according to instructions and drain. Add to sauce
Step 3: Stir through chicken and serve topped with Parmesan and rocket salad

No Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie

This No-Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie is going to be my go to dessert this summer. A zingy lime cream encased in a sweet biscuit crumb - much like a no bake cheesecake...but better!

Honey and Peanut Butter Flapjacks

These flapjacks are now my official weekday grab and go breakfast. I make a big batch on Sunday evening and I'm all set for the week. Oddly I don't really like peanut butter but it works well in this recipe. You can always substitute it for an extra 100g of ordinary butter if you wanted. A handful of raisins makes a nice addition too.
