Recipe: Tomato & Pork Pasta (with cheese)



My Hubby loves this! He misses cheese while we're trying to lose weight (cheese to my Hubby is like chocolate to me!) so having a sprinkling of cheese on this before it goes in the oven feels like a real treat!

This serves 4 at 11 pro points each, you could make it go further with salad and garlic bread.

What's in it:

10 x Sprays low cal cooking spray
250g Fresh Pasta
225g Lean Pork Mince
150g Back Bacon (fat trimmed off)
1 440g Tinned Tomatoes
2 Onions (diced)
2 Red Peppers (diced)
2 Courgettes (diced)
1 clove Garlic
1 tsp Oregano
1 tsp Basil
1 Vegetable Stock Cube, made up to 1 pint
2 tbs ketchup
80g Cheddar Cheese (grated)

How to put it together:

  • Fry the bacon and the diced veg in the cooking spray, then add the mince and continue to fry.
  • Add the tomatoes, garlic & herbs, and stock. Stir through, and simmer until thick. Stir in the ketchup.
  • Cook the pasta according to the packet, drain and add to the sauce. Stir through and transfer to an oven proof dish. Top with cheese and bake on a medium heat until the cheese is melted and golden.
  • Serve with a green salad, or garlic bread (don't forget to add the points!)

Very simple, very tasty, the kids love it too. Ideal for making early and heating up when you're ready for it!

Romance

Now, we don't really do Romance, Yorkie and I. We're not the sort of couple that goes to posh restraunts, buy hearts and flowers on a whim etc, but last night we had a really sweet night. We didn't really do much that was classically romantic, it was the mood, the feeling in the air, if you know what I mean....?

I cooked us steaks for tea, which is always a winner for Yorkie (his second fav after anything pork) and had the candles lit in the front room. Not that I was going for a romantic atmosphere, I just like to have candles lit on cold dark nights.

We snuggled up on the settee together, watching nothing much on telly, all warm and cozy under a blanket, with the cat curled up o us. We'd been talking a little bit about the wedding and stuff, and about what my doc had said to me about what to do before we start a family. Yorkie's eyes went all soft and sweet, he was hugging me close and saying all the right kind of sweet thinks that I love to hear.

It was one of thos…

Tom wanted a go at cooking this week. And beef kofta curry was his choice! Big helping hand from mum but he worked had and we had fun singing in the kitchen while we cooked. This "teaching life skills" is alright you know

Tom's 1st Jujitsu Grading

It's that time of year again! Jack and Tom have been preparing for their grading since September. Jack is used to the whole process now, but for Tom it was the first time. This time we were taking Jack's friend Rory with us - he goes to a different school but does jujitsu with the same club.

Tom was trying for his first belt which is white. Rory was going for orange, and Jack was going for blue.

As usual parents can't stay to watch, so after dropping the three of them off I went for a wander to get some steps in for my own fitness (and a coffee and mince pie) with Freddie. In the freezing cold and bitter wind of Morecambe in December! Lucky old Hubby and Georgie stayed at home in the warm! Freddie didn't rate it at all - if he wasn't still 100% a boobie baby I wouldn't have dragged him out in it and left him home in the warm too.

When I got back to the school and queued up to get in and watch the belts be awarded I wound up chatting with another mum. We got on…
