Using up Salsa di Noci

Using up Salsa di Noci

Very simple lunch today. I still had some of the walnut sauce left from the Salsa di Noci , so I lightly cooked a whole pile of vegetables and tipped them on a plate. Then I loosened the sauce with a bit more lemon juice and a blob of yogurt and spooned it over the...

Melanzane parmigiana, 67p a serving

I made this for DD2 recently and it came out pretty well, although rather salty. The basic recipe is another one from The Silver Spoon Edit 17Jun15 – I made this again and left out all seasoning and it was still quite salty enough, so I would recommend that you...

Dresses, lasagna and resolutions
