I came up with the idea of this tagliatelle prawns in tomato and pepper sauce when I was wondering what to do with an abundance of tomatoes and peppers I had left over from various other dishes I’d been making.

Stir fry?

Nah that would seem the obvious choice. Salad? Eh, no, whilst I love salads, it’s colder here now and I want something warming and comforting.

Hmmm, some kind of sauce? OK yeah but not just a basic tomato sauce, maybe a bit sweeter than usual….hmmm, sauté everything and chuck it in a food processor, add some cumin…oh yes, that’s it!

I used dried tagliatelle for this tagliatelle prawns in tomato and pepper sauce recipe, as I didn’t have time to make my own pasta.

Usually I would as in my tagliatelle with home-made pesto. So if you’ve the time to make your own, you could use my method there.

Active Lifestyle

Lynne and I had a fantastic day out in The Lomonds on Saturday, despite me being sceptical about the weather as I mentioned previously.

We DID actually manage to see off the top of both East Lomond and West Lomond and had some fantastic views over the Fife countryside!!

Job search wise, the CV is fully updated as is my LinkedIn profile.

I’ve begun applying for other positions out-with my current employer. And as I’ve always been involved in Project Management / Account Management of some sort but have no formal specific qualifications in those areas, other than years of practical experience, I’ll be attending my Prince2 Project Management course in December. I’m really looking forward to that!!

Catch you Thursday…… 😉

      Hi Rachel, thank you so much!

      I’d love to hear any feedback when you get a chance to make this. 🙂

      Now to take a good look at your Apricot Salsa Chicken recipe…..mmmmmm!! 😀

  3. Love how you used all your leftover tomatoes/sauces – this sounds fantastic – specially with a little hint of spice from that chili!
    Looking forward to seeing those “fantastic views over the Fife countryside” – Good luck with the job search, Neil!

      Hi Shashi, I get Lynne to check on my spice levels, as she does with all my recipes, and if I had my way there would be more chili! But it might over-power the taste…..I suppose it’s a personal preference with how much you could add. 🙂

      Yep, those pictures of the Fife countryside are coming. I’ve just got to decide on which one’s, as I took so many, we were so lucky with the weather that day! 😀
