Experimental Entertainment

Let me get this straight. I am not usually an experimental cook. I like recipes. I am quite happy to play aroung with recipes, but I don't do freestyle... until today!  I've been watching Nigel Slater's tv programme, and to start with I couldn't believe how he didn't plan any of his meals! But suddenly, while watching one episode, I wanted to try it. I could barely believe I actually wanted to do it! But I decided I would have a go, and maybe experiment every Friday with what I had left from my weekly shop. I'm doing it two days this week, as that's just the way things have worked! So, please give a very warm welcome to my first freestyle dish!

Apologies for the half eaten meatball, but I forgot to take a photo before I started eating!
It's based around some pasta sauce I had leftover from the pasta bake I made last week, which you can read about here. (I don't usually buy my sauces!). The meatballs are made from one sausage I had in the freezer. I added tomato puree and some Worcestershire sauce to the tomato sauce, which made it lovely and rich. I could get used to this experimenting lark...


I'd love to hear your thoughts!
