Well this section was inspired by LightcliffeClaret who one day posted a recipe up on the Board and folk got hooked on the idea. A few more recipes followed so we decided to capture them for posterity and put them up here for you all to try.
You must have your own favourites too, so let us know what they are by posting them on the messageboard. We will then put them up here, and ask folk to try making them and ask for their feedback on ease of cooking and quality of taste.
Lightcliffe's Recipes #1 - Minted Lamb Casserole
Serves 3/4 - or 2 fat b******s
What you will need:
400g diced lamb
Preheat the oven to 170C.
Put the lamb and vegetables into a casserole dish.
Using the stock and gravy granules, make a gravy and add the mint sauce.
Cover and cook in the pre-heated oven for 1 and a half hours.
Uncover, stir and cook for a further 15 minutes before serving (with the lid off).
Serve with mashed potatoes (to soak up the gravy, mmm), and garden peas.
I've just had this, and it is gorgeous, enjoy!
Lightcliffe's Recipes #2-Rosey's Tagliatelle with Meatballs
You will need:
Low-fat cooking spray
For the meatballs:
For the sauce:
Heat the largest frying pan (I used a wok) with the low fat spray and brown the meatballs all over for 5 minutes. You may have to cook them in batches. It took me two bacthes of ten. Put them to one side on kitchen roll.
To make the sauce, wipe clean the pan with kitchen roll and add the sauce ingredients. Bring to the boil and then simmer for twenty minutes.
Cook the tagliatelle.
Add the meatballs to the sauce after it has simmered for twenty minutes and cook for a futher ten, stirring occasionally.
Serve the meatballs and sauce on top of the tagliatelle, and garnish with the rest of the basil.
