But, as we are in the kitchen at lunch time, we thought we would make our own pasta. This pasta primavera was very tasty, and you wouldn't believe it is so low in calories - as it's very creamy. We estimate the dish at around 350 calories. We'll use THIS RECIPE and be adding some asparagus too. As I've mentioned before, if you aren't making your own pasta, then use whatever dried pasta you prefer. If you don't mind paying a little extra, look for the 'bronze pasta' as the sauce sticks to it better.
When following our method of weight loss, you get to eat more at weekends and can enjoy a full calorie allowance. On days (like this) when we know
we'll be eating out and socialising more we like to try and increase our calorie allowance by going for a good walk. In between the rain showers this morning we hope to get out. An hour's walk will give you at least one free (British size) pint.
SUNDAY - we hope to create a chicken with fondant potato dish similar to the one we enjoyed at a good restaurant. The picture's a bit dark, as it was taken on my mobile. We've got a feeling the chicken was poached, although the skin was crispy, so we're busy fiddling around with some ingredients. Hopefully it will look similar.
