Pasta Puttanesca

Quick and easy dish. That”s what I need for supper. I liked that there is no cheese. But I don’t know about my hubby. He is the cheese lover, but eating this dish he didn’t mentioned cheese. So I don”t know he was satisfied with the meal or just tired repeating that he needs cheese 🙂 Any way – the dish is good and classic.

Sausage stew

Very simple but still effective stew. Especially good when you have to feed your family with only five sausages.

Pasta with corn

This dish is a winner for my kids! It’s very very quick and super simple. Even kids can prepare it. But I save it only for the time when I’m very tired or don’t want to stay in a kitchen for a long time. This dish is a little bit sweet because of the corn, maybe that’s why kids like it. But I have to warn you – make it only if you really like corn. My kids like pasta and corn so much that they even don’t notice that there is onion too 🙂

White beans and dried tomato salads

Once I made these salads and it was something new. Maybe it tasted not so usual to us, but it was really good. And now I made these salads for four times and they still disappear very quickly. So I save the recipe here and recommend to try them you too.

Crab sticks salad with tomato

In my family I guess only I eat these crab sticks. So while my kids were still sleeping and my hubby was already working, I tried some recipes with them. This recipe is very quick and easy. Especially tasty with homegrown tomatoes 😉 I enjoyed them on toasted pumpkin bread (that’s why my bread is so yellow). Hope you will like them too!

Spaghetti with chicken

One more quick and delicious dinner. I do no know why this recipe is not in this blog yet. We found it long time ago and we tried it many times.
