Pasta Bolognaise with baked beans

Pasta Bolognaise is good as a winter dish as it is comfort food.

This video is from Kitchen Sanctuary. This recipe uses the Baked beans, pasta and canned tomato sauce from inside the Woolworths Basics box which you can buy online for $80. You still need red wine, mince and onion to make the Bolognaise sauce. The wine you can buy from BWS and the mince you can buy from your local butcher.

You can add the baked beans to the end if you like.


Penne pasta with tomato and bacon

I love a simple pasta dish for dinner. Now you can use the penne pasta that you got in your Woolworths box or you can buy penne pasta for $2 at Woolworths and Coles. You can use the canned tomato sauce from the box if you like. You’ll also need some bacon.

Now you cook the pasta according to the directions on the packet.

Pasta bolognaise

I love having this dish during the colder months. Especially now that we are in Coronavirus lockdown it’s important to have a freezer filled with precooked sauces and other things. For the healthcare workers this is extremely vital after a long hard day at work looking after people.

This version has about 300-500 calories and is easily made at home after a long day at work. You can freeze the bolognaise sauce if you make a big batch of it. You can use any pasta you like.

Do make this simple meal when you can

Stay safe everyone


Vapiano by Akira

Vapiano is an Italian restaurant in Melbourne and its in Flinders Lane. Here they are a big place and are near the corner of Queen and Flinders Lane. But you can also enter via Collins st.

I have been there waaay too many times. And every time I am given a card which you use everytime when you order a meal. When you order a meal they scan your card and then you go downstairs or upstairs (Collins st side) to pay. The staff there are very friendly.

Back in 2010 things were a lot different. RMIT Newintstudents didn’t like their pizza or pasta much and there wasn’t a fanatico club then. Now the pasta is a lot better and their truffle pizza was too salty. Nowadays we are both members of the fanatico club so we either receive meals for free or at a discount.

With their pizzas you order it and then they swipe your card and then you are given a buzzer. When it is ready then they buzz you. It is the thin crust pizza. I have had their vegetarian pizza before and it was yum.

They also have a good range of Italian wines for you to choose from.

Here I have enjoyed their pastas and they even do takeaway ones. Their bread is pretty good. Its souradough and its soft on the inside and crusty on the outside. Their oils are also great. These are the good extra virgin oil. Their pastas always fill me up. But their linguini always gets stuck together.

You can add toppings to your pasta or pizza for an extra $1- $5 each. Sauce is free.

Do come on by for your pizza and pasta fix after your race or training
