Noodle wrapped in Omelette

Always I add eggs in to the omelette and thought of trying it in a different way. I found that my kids prefer this version of noodles than the other one. This is a bit spicy. If you do not like spicy foods try  with out chillies.

This mouth watering noodle dish helps to balances the amount you are eating as it is already portion controlled. When you make noodle only you feel like eating more. but this recipe is just to wrap the noodles in omelette.

This recipe will serve 4 people. I added 2 eggs for each person. The protein quantity in makes filling and you can adjust this with any vegetable as you wish.

Sausage pasta & Bean Casserole

Cooking on a week day night after work is a nightmare if you don’t think ahead. As mums we always like to provide most nutritious meal that we can give. One pot budget meals suits the pocket as well as the busy life style.  Most of dinners are one pot meals.

This really go well in a slow cooker as well as on the stove. I prefer to cook and freeze or cook in the morning and serve at night. This is a winter friendly meal that you can serve four people under $10.

Try adding what ever available in your fridge or the pantry. Instead of sausages you can add any other small cut meats or fish too. If you are not consuming meat still you can turn this to a beautiful vegetarian meal.

This will serve four people.

Stir Fried Vegetable with Noodles

If I say most of my week day meals are one pot meals that’s true. I always try to cook all in one to save my time and give my family some healthy meals every day. Making several things after work is difficult as well as taking a lot of time. When you add all together makes it more tastier too.

I always add lots of veggies in my cooking. It always gives an appealing look as well as the taste. I freeze the left overs for another day or for kids to use when they are hungry.

This recipe will serve 8 people……………………………………..

I used 500 g of noodles. Even you can use angel hair pasta. I used a can of chick peas, a cup of cabbage, 1 red capsicum, 1 leek, and a large carrot for vegetables. Make sure to cut them thinly.

Put a pot of water with salt in it and bring to boil and add the noodles and cook accordingly to the packet instructions. For the spices I used a teaspoon full cumin and coriander powders, salt and pepper and a 1/2 teaspoon full paprika powder.

Other than that I used one onion with few cloves of garlic finely sliced, several curry leaves, 2 table spoons tomato sauce with a 2 table spoon soy sauce and a table spoon full Chinese cooking wine. Add some oil in to a pan. When the oil is hot add all the onions garlic and curry leaves in to the hot oil and stir fry until the onions are translucent.

After add the vegetables and stir fry well.

Next add the spice powders and stir well.

Add the soy sauce, tomato sauce and the coking wine.

Creamy Chicken and vegetable Pasta

My meals are always simple and easy. I always try to prepare things before I go to work or during the week end. Even pasta can be cooked a day ahead. So I come home and assemble everything together in few minutes. Most of the time they are one pot meals. But I always try to give my family a well balanced diet.

You can always use the left overs from the Sunday roast to a meal like this. As it a creamy and a tasty dish kids will love this too. Try this and let me know too. I have written the descriptions with the picture for easy understanding. Always get this as an idea and create your own. Thats why I didn’t write the measurements.  I like more veggies than pasta. you can do it the other way with more pasta and less veggies.

Bon Appétit!
