PASTA RISOTTO WITH PEAS AND PANCETTA

I have never cooked with orzo pasta before but I have to say this worked really well - it is just like risotto but a lot quicker and easier as you aren't constantly stirring and adding stock

I adapted Not Quite Nigella's recipe, adding a bit more festive cheer. A couple of times I had pasta with potato in it served with a side of rice
Nigella's Kedgeree Risotto

Nigella's Kedgeree Risotto

I also wanted to use some of it in a quick pasta dish the next day. The recipe for the kedgeree risotto was originally published in "Feast" but Nigella has very kindly shared it on her website here
Orzo Risotto

This recipe is based on the Nigella Lawson recipe in her Nigellissima book (featured on the TV series)
Pancetta and pea risotto

Pancetta and pea risotto

I saw this recipe on the newly slim Nigellas cookery programme Nigellisima. It cooks much quicker than a normal risotto as orzo pasta is used instead of risotto rice

My sister and I made these together and served them with lamb steaks and Nigella's rapid roastini. I love a mushroom risotto and mushrooms with pasta especially, but a nice big stuffed portobello mushroom makes a really nice side dish for a great variety of meals

 A second batch of pinwheels made to accompany Nigella Orzo Pasta Risotto. Clearly pasta doesn't make you fasta as my race time was well short of a PB but I am still carrying a whiplash injury from a car crash last year

Another big hit this week was Nigella's Broccoli and Stilton Soup. Pea & Pancetta Pasta Risotto. Pasta bake is a great comfort food and Simon Hopkinson's Baked Pappardelle with Pancetta and Porcini is always a winner
Sort of summery meatballs - or how a slow cooker saved my life

Sort of summery meatballs - or how a slow cooker saved my life

They took a bit of chopping up because they are kind of 'hollow', so when you slice you get a little green circle, and it needs to be quite small to go in the meatballs, but I treated them a little like herbs and used a mezza luna (one of those semi circular knives with a handles at each end that Nigella uses)
