SPAGHETTI ALLA PUTTANESCA
Salty anchovies, fiery chillies, pungent garlic and piquant capers add big bold flavours to this gorgeous (but strictly adult) Italian tomato sauce.
Cream is not traditionally used in a carbonara sauce, but in this kid-friendly version it adds a delicious silky finish. Follow the recipe for perfect results.
HOT & COLD SUMMER SPAGHETTI
A chilled sauce of tomato, garlic, feta, fresh herbs, olive oil and chicken is poured over hot spaghetti to create an explosion of vibrant Mediterranean flavour.
ONE-POT CHORIZO & TOMATO PASTA
Packed with smokiness from the chorizo and a deep, rich tomato taste. See Papa Grandé’s Tips for suggestions on how to adjust this versatile family recipe.
LEMONY CHICKEN & BABY MARROW PASTA
Easy to make with its buttery, creamy sauce and a zing of lemon zest, this easy family dish has a delicate, fresh flavour.
