I ended up buying a few Tortilla wraps the other day … I didn’t however plan on using them tonight. Still quick and simple meals are the name of the game at times. Especially when you’ve got two little people to take care of.
A very simple mix. Chop some turkey strips / courgette strips / tomato and add a splash of tomato sauce. Very simple … very quick and just add in some smokey paprika.
Of course certain little people aren’t too big on pepper. So those get cooked on the side again with a splash of tomato sauce and some smokey paprika so they keep a consistent enough flavour.
Left over rice can get nuked in the microwave and makes a lovely filler.
The Tortillas are quick and easy only needing 40 seconds in the microwave.
and hey presto … just add some cream and grated cheese.
It’s a really quick and simple Turkey Fajitas meal and you could spice it up more with some red onion … cumin … or anything really.
So this isn’t a carbonara as such (note the lack of egg) but to me it is sort of :D
This is a nice quick dish and the Ingredients for it are pretty basic
- Onions (I used shallots once again .. softer flavour)
- Pancetta (Bacon / cured ham of some sort you could chop up a couple of rashers if you wanted)
- Mushrooms (I’d have generally used button mushroom but I used some Shiitake Mushrooms here as there’s a nicer flavour from them
- Pasta (ideally you’d use tagliatelle in this case I used fusilli)
- Chop the onion and throw it on the pan with a bit of olive oil (I chopped the onion in half and sliced it rather than chopping up really small)
- Throw the Pancetta onto the pan as well and cook a bit (I usually end up removing excess fatty bits cus I’m like that)
- Chop the mushrooms up again I kept it fairly big and throw on the pan cook for a few minutes
- Stick on your pasta (depending on cooking times)
- Throw the cream in and wait for it to thicken up a bit
- Drain your pasta and mix the sauce into it in the sauce pan
- If you’ve got parmesan cheese now would be a good time to use it
And enjoy .. :)
This turned out rather nicely 9/10 from me .. the Fusilli may not have been the best choice in the world but it was still a really nice dish about 15 – 20 minutes from start to finish.
