CHICKEN AND VEGETABLE PASTA PIE

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.

CLASSIC MINESTRONE

I’m deviating from Mum’s recipes this week because I made a pot of this minestrone soup for my family last Sunday and everyone said I should add the recipe to the collection.  I always make it the day before up to the marked area, then reheat it the next day and add the pasta.  If you add the pasta too early it can get a bit gluggy.

MEATLOAF IN A BASIN

Most meatloaves I know of are baked in a tin or hand molded into a loaf shape.  This is the first time I’ve seen a recipe that steams the loaf in a basin, but trust Mum to have cut out and kept something different.  The combination of potato, carrot and onions together with sausage meat and some spices in this recipe should make for a tasty loaf.
