Hello #LoyalRoyals

Craving a big bowl of steaming pasta for supper? Here are our most popular pasta recipes, ready to warm you up from the inside out.

No stress if you don’t have all the ingredients in your kitchen right now. Use this collection as inspiration, a starting point which gets you into the kitchen. Move away from the screen and the hustle to a place where you can experiment and explore. Cooking, like travel, is all about the journey 🙂

In the words of Anthony Bourdain:

“I’m a big believer in winging it. I’m a big believer that you’re never going to find perfect city travel experience or the perfect meal without a constant willingness to experience a bad one. Letting the happy accident happen is what a lot of vacation itineraries miss, I think, and I’m always trying to push people to allow those things to happen rather than stick to some rigid itinerary.”

Let your kitchen adventure begin!

Burst Cherry Tomato Pasta

This recipe is super easy to make. Roast all the ingredients in a sheet pan, boil some pasta and you’re minutes away from a delicious dinner. We’ve favoured the vegan-friendly Pesto Princess Basil & Lemon Pesto for this dish but you can use any pesto sauce you have to hand. Here is the recipe.

Green Goddess Pasta

Could this be the ultimate plant-based pesto pasta dish? We think so. We love the creaminess of the blitzed avocado, the lightness of the spiralized zucchini and spaghetti mix, and the golden nuggets of spiced tofu. Recipe over here.

Basil & Chilli Pesto Pasta

A rough weekly meal plan helps my budget, body, mind and soul! That’s not to say I’m very good at it, but I’m on a quest to improve this year. Better planning, fresher, fewer ingredients and simple dishes I actually look forward to cooking when I get home after a day at the Palace! Enter our five-ingredient Basil & Chilli Pesto Pasta! Give it a try.

Creamy Hummus Pasta

Bet you hadn’t thought of having #hummusfordinner?

Her Royal Hummus is a superstar when it comes to picnics, snacks and meze platters but why not try this recipe for a simple pasta dish with a creamy sauce made from a tub of our hummus?

Spinach & Ricotta Cannelloni

We need moments which ground us, and I found my happy place making this dish of cannelloni. It’s easy (there’s no white sauce – thanks to Sam of Drizzle and Dip for her inspiration) and totally therapeutic. Winter comfort food? Tick. Here is the recipe.
