1 tbsp sundried tomato paste
2 cups chicken stock or vegetable stock
1/2 cup cream
Olive oil
black pepper, white pepper, green
pepper, pink pepper, allspice

in a pot, heat oil and toss in sliced carrot, leek and potato.cook for 2 mins, add spices as desired, and the tomato paste. Cook for another 5 mins, then add chicken broth.

Bring to a simmer, then let cook 15 to 20 min till potatoes are done.

Take off the heat, add the cream and give a few good bllllrs (that is a technical term) with a blender to puree some of it.

So, arequestdd, this is Araäs Broccoli Mushroomy Pasta Goodness.

THis i basically a eal in two parts: there is the pasta goodness of day one, and the pasta bake goodness of day two. Feeds two people twice, or four once.

so, to start the day 1, you need:

1 crown of broccoli
200g of mushrooms (I used chestnut)
3 tbsp butter
shredded cheese
black pepper

In a pan, melt butter. Toss in the sliced msuhrooms and cook until almost done - then, in goes the copped-into-suitable-pieces brococli. cook until mushroos ae done, then add the cream, pouring slowly, until it is nice and thick. add black pepper.

Cook a suitable amount of pasta - I suck at figuring out ho wmuch that is! - and drain. this should be done by the time the sauce is done tickening, so you can take the soauce and pour it into the pasta.

Mix well.

add a few handfulls of shredded cheese - I used red cheddar.

nrom away.


that was phase one. phase two, is leftovers the next day - assuming you have any!

take a casserole dish of sutiable size and fill with the leftovers. Cover with cheee -ä in this case, a handful of red cheddar, and about haf of a smallblock of Ile of Man white cheddar with black peppercorns.

oven in 200C until browned on top and heated through. 25ish minutes shhould do.

Again, commence with the nrom.

1 lbs of ground beef
2 lbs of ground lamb
2 eggs
1 cup of sou cream
1 cup of bread crumbs

Being burgers, these WERE rathee easy t omake. Chop onion and garlic, Mush everything up, make sure it stays sticky, form into patties, grill, enjoy.

However, I also made a variaton: stuffed with goats' cheese, these worked even better. FForm a ball, depress, stuff, reball, flatten.
