Yes, I’ve hit the Gino D’Acampo pasta book again, this one with yellow peppers and lots of herbs is rather nice, although I changed it a bit by swapping the thyme with oregano, as that’s what I had and adding pancetta. Unfortunately I managed to burn the pancetta, I will have to add it later next time and yes, there will be a next time.

Gnocchi al pomodoro is another Gino’s Pasta recipe and it was okay. It was just basically gnocchi in a tomato sauce topped with cheese, so perfectly nice but I would have preferred the top to be a bit crispy.
This, brown rice bibimbap from The Art of the Larder was absolutely gorgeous. I adapted the recipe a bit, I’m not a big fan of bean sprouts or mushrooms, so I replaced them with aubergine and red onion, I also skipped the fried egg and used pancetta for the optional meat. I think this is a great recipe for using whatever veg you’ve got / fancy, it does take a little while, all that frying of everything separately but it was very relaxing and quite simple.
