Tip for today: Plan your menus for the week or even for a month. You will save time going shopping every week for groceries and money as well! Then you only need to buy your fresh fruit and vegies as you need them.
Have an easy life and enjoy it!

Oh I love sunday pasta!
Where I come from Sunday is fresh pasta day. I remember my Grandma making the bolognaise and the tagliatelli, and she would make meat pies as well. Today I buy my fresh pasta already made! Here I have an easy pasta for one.
1 pack Latina Fresh Pasta - ravioli, agnolotti, gnocci, tortellini or what ever you fancy.
Add pasta to salted boiling water and cook until " al dente" (5 to 8 minutes)
Drain pasta and return to pan.
Add a cup [ or to your liking] of a good pasta/pesto sauce.
Season with sea salt and pepper and serve with a sprinkle of parmesan.
If you feel adventurous serve a side salad with tomato, lettuce, cucumber and a garlic toast.
Tip= to make garlic toast get a slice of bread and toast slightly. Peel a clove of fresh Garlic and rub liberally onto the toast. Spread with butter or a drop of olive oil and garlic then pop it under the grill for a few seconds.
I made this as a vegetarian dish, if you want to make it traditional serve it with a good bolognaise sauce. I will post a good recipe next week, and one for meat pies as well. Enjoy! Easy, simple, and gourmet.
