Some of the simplest and cheapest dishes one can make are pasta dishes. One reason for this is because pasta is so amazingly versatile. One can throw it together with all manner of things, probably because alone it doesn’t have a particularly strong taste, or a particularly individual texture. It merely provides a good body of carbohydrates for a sauce, which makes it an ideal food for here. Yet there have been very few pasta recipes posted on this blog, and I’m not quite sure why. As such, over the coming weeks I’ll seek to rectify that – after all everyone has at least some form of pasta in their cupboards, and one can pick up a 500g pack of spaghetti for a mere 41p.
