I usually make Chocolate Mousse in one large bowl and then serve it up with berries, but this recipe makes 10 individual desserts. Great for a large dinner party, especially as it can be made the day before.
In this recipe cooked pasta with a cheese and mustard sauce is pressed into a pie dish and baked to form a crust. The filling of chicken, leek, carrot and zucchini is added and then topped with more of the pasta mix. A quite different sort of chicken and vegetable pie.
Lamb is such a versatile meat. You can roast it, casserole it, grill and bbq it, whatever you have the time or the taste for. The page of lamb recipes that Mum kept from July 1997 showcases this versatility. This recipe give a basic lamb chop a real lift and makes a change from just eating it with tomato sauce.
I’m usually not a fan of cheesecake style desserts that use gelatine as a setting agent, but in this case I think the chocolate and cherries add good strong flavours and should make it taste really good. I also like the idea of using Gaiety biscuits for the base.
