Classic Spaghetti & Meatballs
Everyone need’s a classic spaghetti & meatballs recipe to add to their weekly dinners. This comfort food is pretty much everyone’s favourite. The meatballs are a simple but flavourful mixture of ground meat (80% meat, 20% fat) and aromatics, browned in a skillet, cooked in a tomato sauce and served on spaghetti. Just perfect!

Chilli Paneer Spaghetti
Chilli paneer on its own is so delicious, so why not pair it up with Spaghetti to make a yummy Chilli Paneer Spaghetti. Paneer is a type of firm cheese (cottage cheese) that takes on the flavour of the gravy/sauce very well and that’s why it works really well for this dish.

Vegan food doesn’t mean boring food. This Vegan Spaghetti Bolognese is packed full of flavour and gives the dish some meatiness from the mushrooms. So quick to make and so yummy!
Left over pasta makes for the best pasta sandwich. This is one of the quickest lunch ideas and is great with a lot of different toppings.

Greek Pasta Bake (Pastitsio)
A Greek Pasta Bake also known as Pastitsio is the perfect marriage of flavours. My recipe consists of a layering of perfectly cooked pasta seasoned with herbs, lamb mince in a delicious tomato sauce, béchamel sauce and melted cheese. This dish is a great crowd pleaser and can be made in advance and refrigerated to bake the following day or for the weekend.
Chicken Tikka Masala Spaghetti
Chicken Tikka Masala means a lot of yummy flavours, from spicy to slightly tangy, and combining it with some spaghetti gives you the best Indian-fusion called Chicken Tikka Masala Spaghetti. The chicken tikka recipe I have used below is a cheats recipe that I like to use when I have no time to marinate the chicken and when I am too lazy to get the barbecue going.
Avocado & Basil Linguine
In the last few years, we Kenyans have really started liking Avocado and eating it with almost every food we make. So this Avocado & Basil Linguine is a must! It’s so simple to make and although it may look boring, it is delicious! The basil leaves along with the avocado give the spaghetti a rich green colour and the cherry tomatoes just complete this dish.
