(Note ~ this above pasta in the bottom pic only has a few leaves of fresh basil through it, to do this just add it to the eggs and flour in the processor. I will feature a recipe later this week using this flavoured pasta along with some other flavouring ideas).

Today I finished shooting my feature for Delicious Magazine's August issue (we shoot 3 months in advance, which is the norm for most editorials) anyway I was going through my fridge and cleaning out all the bits and pieces left over from the shoot ~ herbs, veggies etc etc.., last night on Masterchef Australia (yes, I've become hooked on it again ~ that's the problem when you look at the first episode!) one of the guest chefs made an amazing looking pasta dish which had been stuck in my head all morning, so I decided it was pasta for dinner and confirmed it so upon spying I had all the ingredients left over in the fridge for my favourite, quick and easy, super-duper, uber-flavoursome home made pasta dish; Spaghetti with Lemon, Garlic, Chilli and Mint.

I hoped to get a few more recipes shot but alas the days are shorter here now and my light disappears, so I'll try to get them shot over the coming days...

Until then, this is what I'm eating tonight with the better half and I thought you guys might like to do the same... :) x
