I’m one of those lucky parents whose child refuses any of those quick meals designed for convenience. In fact, he will not contemplate eating anything that comes out of a can or anything that is pierced five times and bunged in the microwave. Trust me, I’ve tried. So, that’s no baked beans, spaghetti hoops or anything goopy whatsoever. So, on those nights when we’re rushing from school pick up, to practice, back home for dinner and then out for swimming. I resorted to cooking in advance so that I could just reheat. But, of course, as any parent will tell you. This doesn’t actually save you time, you just end up doing it all on another day instead.
I am fortunate however, in that he is a bit of a pasta fiend. Given the choice between a happy meal and cheesy pasta, he will always choose the latter. And, of course, cooking pasta is idiot proof, super quick and pretty much ideal for supper on the evenings where we are run off of our feet. However, I have discovered a foolproof way to make 5 minute pasta convenience meals even easier. Using the latest range from Dell’Ugo – that cooks in 3 minutes!
The Pasta Plus range consists of five gorgeous fresh, filled pastas all with a delicious accompanying butter.
Beetroot & Goats Cheese Fiorelli + Mint Butter
Asparagus & Mozzarella Ravioli + Lemon Butter
Spinach & Ricotta Ravioli + Sage Butter
Butternut Squash Fiorelli + Herb & Garlic Butter
Mozzarella & Tomato Fiorelli + Basil Butter
The reason behind adding the butter is to create the perfect meal all in one without having to pick up any extra ingredients.
This innovative new range provides you with everything you need (in just one pack). To create restaurant style pasta dishes at home. It is a well known chef trick to enhance and complete the dish by melting butter over hot pasta, to add a silky, luxurious texture. And now you can get in on the action yourself. As the Dell’Ugo chefs have developed a delicious range of infused butters made using freshly churned Somerset milk.
