This flavourful crowd-pleaser is a Mediterranean classic by Jessica Dady that deserves a spot on every dining room table. Rich, fresh, healthy, and quick to make, it’s the perfect go-to family dinner for those busy weeknights.
What’s more, this stress-free dish can be served up again and again with a different twist every time. You can try sprinkling your choice of cheese, chilli flakes, or even toasted nuts over the top, and this recipe is sure to find its way into your weekly food shop. If you fancy yourself a bit of a budding chef, you could even challenge yourself to prepare a side of tapas – try some of these from BBC Good Food.
If you really want to go the extra mile, you could make your own pasta from scratch – it’s not as hard as it sounds! You can even give it a go with nothing but eggs, flour, and trusty rolling pin. Fresh pasta will change the way you look at pasta dishes, and it’s a skill well worth learning!
And what’s more satisfying than cooking and eating your own fresh, homemade meal? The knowledge that it’s packed full of health benefits! Tomatoes are a real superfood, full of potassium and Vitamin C, whilst prawns are a great low-calorie source of protein. Surely you’ve heard that you should try to replace your red meat with a seafood dish twice a week?
However you decide to enjoy this hearty dish, our advice is that you crack open a bottle of vino, sit back with it on a sunny summer evening, and picture yourself on a terrace in Venice. Pure bliss.
