“This is a super easy, healthy and delicious option for a no-fuss dinner. Soba noodles are a nice change to the usual pasta or rice, and work perfectly with the tangy and crunchy salad. Salmon is an excellent source of omega 3, which is an essential fatty acid (meaning we need to get it through our diet) that contributes to heart health, and brain development and function.”

2. Delicious Pesto Pasta
If you want a dish that goes from pan to plate in a flash then you can’t go past pasta. Minimum cooking and maximum flavour in every dish. First off, always salt your cooking water since this makes it boil faster. Second, choose a quick sauce that has few ingredients but plenty of flavour. The beauty of pesto is it can be made in your blender or food processor. While your pasta is on the boil simply add the ingredients to your blender and whiz until you have a coarse paste. Plus it’s easy to add more ingredients for a nutrition and flavour boost. Try adding olives, feta, zucchini or peas to your next tasty pasta dinner. Find a basic pesto recipe here.
Pick up a new blender online at Mydeal for powerful blades that make pesto in a flash. Or check out MyDeal home and garden if you need any other pasta cooking equipment from colanders to slotted spoons.
