Pork with Apples, Sage and Cider Recipe

Comforting Autumnal Apple Pie Recipe

I don’t often eat desserts at home, so they always feel like a treat. They are reserved for meals out, occasions, dinners at home shared with family and friends.

Baked ricotta stuffed conchiglioni recipe

This pasta bake, with ricotta filled conchiglioni (giant pasta shells) in spicy, tangy tomato sauce, is one of my favourite pasta recipes. It is simple to make, yet feels luxurious and special thanks to the creamy cheesy filling in each shell, which goes oh-so well with the spicy tomato sauce. Just a little bit of… Continue reading Baked ricotta stuffed conchiglioni recipe
