This is a lovely recipe!
Everyone likes a pasta bake, but it’s so unsatisfying boiling pasta, opening a jar, stirring and baking.
This recipe tastes delicious, but involves you putting in a little bit more effort. You still feel as though you’re having a pasta filled, cheese topped naughty dinner, but you feel you’ve gone some way to deserving it!

If you were to compare the image alongside Jamie’s recipe to mine, you would not think they were the same dish. I did plate it differently, as well as far less elegantly, but the flavours were there!
I have to say that the standout thing on the plate is the basil, olive, butter, tomato and wine sauce. It is absolutely delicious. I will use it again with other chicken dishes.
This is a really good recipe, and actually works well adapted for lunches on top of some couscous, as it soaks up all the buttery/winey sauce.
Oh, and I added a poached egg to the asparagus because they needed using up!

There’s nothing better than sticking a bird in to roast of a weekend, but when the warmer weather arrives and there are only two of you, sometimes the traditional roast, glorious as it is, doesn’t seem necessary.
Jamie’s recipe for roast chicken with cous cous is for four people, but it works absolutely perfectly for two with a delicious lunch for work the next day. It’s really simple, one pan cooking, and the flavours are great. It’s healthy, too.
The start of the New Year always brings out the best intentions, one of which for most of us it to eat well.
This dish from JO is fresh, healthy and ridiculously easy to make.
You kind find the receipt here, and while mine doesn’t look like Jamie’s, it was a lovely little dish to knock up at home after a day at work.
This is a really good recipe to have in your locker a week before payday when money might be a bit tight. A handful of relatively cheap ingredients (potatoes, eggs and onion) and you’ve got a tortilla the size of an average pizza.
I served this with a simple Spanish salad with some chorizo and goats cheese, the saltiness of the cheese and chorizo cuts through the density of the tortilla.
This recipe is a great base, and would work really will with some peppers or chorizo going straight into the tortilla.

Talk about simple, maximum flavour and affordable. This is one of those recipes that you see in a cook book and think ‘could I do that’. The answer is a resounding yes. So many of your five a day are crammed into the sauce which cooks down in less than 15 minutes and the pork fillet, well, that’s less than a fiver for 500g, which in turn is more than enough to feed four hungry people along with the rice.
This is similar in many respects to Jamie’s beef sirloin with ratatouille, but kinder on the wallet and not really any more difficult.
I can’t recommend Jamie’s 15 Minute Meals highly enough.
Jamie Oliver’s 15 Minute Meals has a recipe for lamb lollipops with rice, sauce and papadums, but I adapted the recipe slightly to suit the lamb I had available.
I think that’s part of the idea of 15 Minute Meals, that you don’t have to stick to the recipe, but you can adapt to your surroundings and get an idea of the skills and techniques you can use to achieve a balanced, healthy and affordable dinner in a short time period.
I didn’t have lamb cutlets, so used two lamb steaks and served them up sliced like a beef sirloin.
