Pasta is a student staple – cheap and filling and good with almost anything. But how to keep your meals exciting and original? There’s much more to explore with pasta than the basic twirls and sauce, and knowing a few simple recipes can help you make the most of your store cupboard. Here are a few ideas of easy but delicious ways with pasta to get you started. Pasta Bake The classic. Ultimate comfort food with minimum effort, pasta bakes are a student favourite. Cook the pasta, drain, then whack in the oven with whatever takes your fancy: meat, fish, veg, cheese; creamy sauce, tomato sauce or pesto. Even whack in some leftover nachos for an extra crunch. Delightfully versatile, you don’t need a recipe book to keep the ideas flowing with this one. Spaghetti Bolognese Whether you’re a culinary champ or somewhat an amateur, Bolognese is a must-have recipe in anyone’s repertoire. Whilst stirring some readymade sauce into cooked mince is oh-so-simple, for a homemade touch fry onions, bacon (yes, bacon!), garlic and mushrooms in butter before adding the mince. Then whack in a can of chopped tomatoes and some tomato puree or ketchup, throw in whatever herbs you have in the cupboard, season and simmer for half an hour. Mamma mia.
