Anelletti pasta cakeIn Italy this would be 'Timballo di Anelletti' or' Anelletti alla Palermitana' and is often translated as a pasta pie however as the final cooking process uses a cake tin then I've chosen to call it Anelletti pasta cake instead. As with any traditional Italian pasta dish there are of course many variations, you can add small cubes of diced and fried aubergine into the mix, or even chopped boiled eggs and small chunks of ham. The main focus here though is to make a nice thick rich ragu and by all means use all beef if you have no pork or even some veal instead if you'd like. If you can make you're own rich tomato sauce then all the better if not then please make sure you buy a quality tomato sauce or passatta.
Hot and tangy aubergineHot with the chilli and tangy from the tamarind, this is a great quick and easy way to serve up 1 aubergine, perfect for two as part of an Indian feast. As the aubergine brown in the oil it really picks up the flavour of the fennel and nigella seeds, feel free to only use one spice if that's all you have and if you can't find any tamarind paste then you can always substitute with lemon or lime juice
Shami Kebabs – Lamb Kebabs with cinnamonThese are adapted from a beautiful book called 'Tasting India' by Christine Manfield. Traditionally the mixture is kneaded, slapped and pounded against the sides of a bowl to soften and therefore tenderize it before shaping into patties, the food processor here does all that work for such a small amount of paste.
