It's been some time.. I shared a recipe! Been rushing around like a bee..wished I have more helping hands and time to settle down to share more clean recipes with you guys! Gone were the days where I could spend almost a day researching on many new ideas and all, cooking and baking. Now I would giggle if I can spare an hour for it, perhaps its time to draw a line between personal and work life.
But as busy as it gets, I'm starting to feel the excitement of all upcoming plans, for the first time in my life till date, I might have to step out of my comfort zone, away from this little red dot for a full 3 months..not sure if I'm looking forward or kind of afraid of it, but anyways, its not confirmed yet! Gotta keep in mind, change is the only constant.
Anyway, I'm hoping to take some time to revamp my blog style so it can be easier for you guys to search for recipes, like to include some thumbnails by the side bar..do hang on to this old one for a while more! I'll try my best to make it easier to navigate.
Back to the pasta! I love the idea of incorporating greens in my meals, I can't imagine a meal without!
By this time I can imagine some of you thinking it must be a hassle to do this dish, but trust me, I just..chopped everything up and cooked. Ain't got no time for exact measurements!
What I really love about these recipes is they are so easy to prepare and you don't have to be a great cook to do it. I'm not a cook/ an expert to start with, so if I can, you can too ;)
I have tried (not many) but a few recipes, cream based, aglio olio but I have never tried honey! After this attempt, I believe I will be using quite a bit of honey hehe because they're such natural sweeteners and it compliments so well with the parsley and garlic!
Oh, if you're wondering what wholemeal pasta I'm using:
I'm not sure about you, but to me, this just tasted like normal pasta, I can't even tell the difference if you cooked it with normal plain pasta (other than the colour). I've heard many who said wholemeal tastes blend..maybe you guys can try this? If I had more time I would definitely try making my own pasta, for now, this should do the trick.
This whole packet of 500g costs only about $2.95? Super worth it!
