Easy Family Supper
~ Baked Garlic Prawn & Spaghetti Gratin ~
A One Pot Meal!
A fabulous and easy family supper that only uses one pot – well, one baking tray actually! This is one of the recipes that I promised to share with you from my meal plan on Tuesday: Meal Planning Tuesday – The Family Meal Plan whilst I Live on £1 a Day! This is a little pungent, but I think most people like garlic prawns and pasta, don’t they? I sometimes add some cooked mussels to this dish, but any seafood would be good……such as small scallops and calamari, just adjust the cooking times if necessary. And by the same token, please do adjust the garlic to taste, add more for an anti-social evening of garlic prawn bliss or less if you have a job interview the next day! I am known as a bit of a garlic fiend, I love it, and so always add plenty.
This is such an easy meal and a GREAT way to get the kiddie winkies to eat fish and seafood……you can also “veg” this up a bit and add mushrooms or even peas and broccoli. It is a LITTLE naughty with the butter, but if you are REALLY worried about the butter, which is a wonderful natural ingredient and is fine to eat now and then, I am sure rapeseed oil or olive oil would be just as nice – but I DO love it with good British butter. You can use other pasta shapes, and penne is a good alternative to spaghetti….as is a nice egg tagliatelle too. This is a pretty short post for today, as I have LOTS of great photos to upload for another post, later today or tomorrow, and, I have also got to write my Live Below the Line on £1 a Day report for the end of the week……so it’s all busy on the blogging front!
Don’t forget I have THREE wonderful Giveaway Contests running right now……I am thrilled to be able to host them, as they all cover subjects/ food that is close to my heart…….fresh fish and BRITISH fish at that, BRITISH berries as well as supporting Breast Cancer Care and the Jubilee……..so, do pop by and enter them, there has to be a winner, and it could be YOU! See you later, Karen.
