Thanks for stopping by, have a great day🤗

As promised upped and resteemed in both accounts! I love delicious but easy dishes on busy weekdays!😋😋😋✌following younow!

Happy to hear @momskitchen! (Sorry 4 the late reply!😫) same goes here!

Welcome back! Great to have you amongst us again. Your dish looks amazing. Good luck.

Thank you so much @foodforsoul for the warm welcome 😙 Its fun to be back! 💪🤗 thanks for the support! Good luck to you too- your dish (as always ) looks amazing and delicious!! Never tried tiramisu made like that!

How’s your little one settling in?

10x 4 asking @foodforsoul😁 (and sorry for the late reply...)
Hes adorable!!! I forgot how tiny they are as newborns😄! Nights are a bit challenging at the moment .. but its definitely worth it!🤗

You don’t have to apologise I know exactly how time flies when you have a little one around ;)

Hello @cooknbake, nice to see you back on your feet. Question about the 1/2 cup of water. Does it function as a paste for the ingredients? So that it sticks to the pasta or what does it do to the pasta?

Hi @harlot:) Yup, trying to get back to routine as fast as I can! Thank you :) The sauce can be a bit thick when mixing it together with the pasta. Adding the water while mixing together gives it a nicer and smoother consistency. Hope you get a chance to try it out! Ill be happy to know how it turned out if you do :))

Oh that is what it do. Thank you for clarifying :) Maybe replacing the water with Olive Oil is also a good idea? Sorry I am just worried that the water will flush out the taste (I am pretty new to this one).

Olive oil would be great as well! 🤗

Looking good ma cherie, yuuuum!

Woukd be perfect with zoodles too 🤤🤤🤤🤤

Good luck!

Awesome dish! It looks so fresh and tasty. The almonds and rocket with basil make a great pesto for the pasta! It is so nice to hear that your children liked it too because it is healthy!

Hi @chefsteve! Yup, It was very tasty and a very light and healthy sauce to go with the patsa:) I usually go with the non vegan version of pesto, with the parmesan and pine nuts but this version I loved even more! And yes, having the kids love it was great!! 🕺💃

I always like it when I try something new and then enjoy it. Glad this was your experience as well and that your kids gave it a thumbs up.

I love the simplicity of your dish and the use of just a few ingredients to create a wholesome and flavorful pasta dish. This is a good example of 'less is more'.

Me too @offoodandart! I love trying out new things and end up loving them and happily adding them to my daily recipes. I especially focus on sharing the simple cooking recipes that arent a big fuss so that also people who arent big cooking fans would be able to try them out and enjoy them as well! So with just a few ingredients... poof! Youve got your meal set😄😄Less is definitely more here! 😁

I totally get it. Plus, a few ingredients doesn't mean less delicious food. Sometimes a few means you highlight the flavor of each of the ingredients rather than mask or disguise them with lots of other stuff.

And we don't always have lots of time to spare in the kitchen. Life gets busy!
