Creamy Chilli Pumpkin Pasta with Chestnut & Sourdough Crumb

This is a comforting, indulgent hug in a bowl, full of the flavours of autumn with a warming kick from the chilli. This recipe is great for using up your leftover halloween pumpkin, but would work equally with any other of the season’s squash (like Crown Prince, Butternut or Delicata). The addition of the chestnut and toasted sourdough topping adds another dimension.

Recipe: Sustainably-Caught Mackerel, Broccoli, Fennel & Chilli Linguini

In an effort to eat more sustainable seafood, I’ve been looking at what’s on the market and came across Fish4Ever.

If you’re a last-minute meal planner like me, these are perfect to have tucked away in the cupboard – ready to dig out for a quick and tasty midweek dinner like this.

If you fancy baking something a bit more seasonal – using local Welsh produce – give this delicious Caramelised Leek Tart with Walnut Pastry and Perl Las cheese a go instead.

Recipe: Chickpea & Aubergine Traybake with Cheesy Croutons

This fuss-free traybake only uses a teaspoon of sun-dried tomato pesto with some cheap dried herbs and tins to add tons of flavour to a tray of healthy roasted veggies. It also uses up a couple of slices of stale sourdough to make some crunchy croutons – you could use whatever bread you have going spare.
