My Favourite Pasta Recipes

Pasta with Capsicum, Arugula and Sun-dried Tomato myfavouritepastime.comI had this pasta a few days ago for lunch and it was really delicious. You can also add some shredded chicken or other kinds of meat if you prefer. I wish you a very pleasant weekend. We have a long one here. I’m not planning to go anywhere. I’ll probably be binge watching shows on Netflix. Sounds like a great idea. Happy Cooking!

  1. This is such a bright and cheery dish, Liz! I would love to have it for lunch. The garlic must give it yummy flavor. I hope you had a great weekend and got to relax!

    1. Hi Shari
      I’ve been hibernating…too many things need my attention. Thanks for wishing me a great weekend. It was busy but nice. Have a lovely weekend, ahead!
      Liz

  2. Hi Liz – for some reason I haven’t been receiving notice of your new posts… so I ‘unfollowed’ you and then ‘followed’ you again… let’s see what happens! Hope all is well with you. I’m off tomorrow to stay with my grandchildren while my son and his wife go to Spain. I see my ortho. doctor today (regarding my broken ankle) and sure hope she tells me I can drive down to PA. I already have my bread machine and other things on my kitchen table in preparation for being away for more than two weeks… Again – I’ll only be gone that long IF I can drive down… and then drive to the Pocono house, where I haven’t been in a long, long time.

    1. Hi Cecile
      You seem to be having a great time. I haven’t been posting much of late so maybe that’s why you haven’t received notice of my posts? thanks for re-following.
      I assume by now you’re back from PA and had a great time with your grand kids. Were you able to drive? How was Pocono house? I’m trying to resume blogging and hope to start on a regular basis. Have a wonderful weekend.

      1. Nope – I’m still here… and, as I was typing my other reply I was thinking, “Didn’t I already tell Liz where I am etc.”? My memory isn’t great at the best of times and right now I’m a bit ‘brain-fried’…. no wonder people have kids when they’re young!!
        About the ankle – it’s doing very well. I think it’s the tendon that’s going to continue to give me trouble for a good while… which often happens.

        1. At least the ankle is doing well and I hope the tendon heals completely, with time. Healing is faster for kids but takes longer for older people like us. Even losing weight takes longer for us…I’ve been trying to lose weight in vain. I guess it’s just my bad eating habits. I have a binging streak every now and again. I can’t seem to shed it off. Have a wonderful weekend xoxo to the little ones!

        2. I blamed my weight gain on menopause, then blamed it on post-menopause… I was losing a bit since starting on my thyroid meds BUT I’ve been cooking like crazy, as I told you, here in PA and, sadly, I think I probably gained most of it back… ; o (

        3. Ha ha the good thing for me is I am neither loosing nor gaining. It just remains stagnant even though I want it to reduce. I must work harder, but summer is fast approaching and they’ll be lots of BBQ and food…goodness me!

        4. Ha ha, that’s true. I wish it would shift towards, loosing though. Are you back home? Have a great weekend, ahead!
          Liz

        5. Yup – back home! And I’m sooo far behind with my gardening after breaking my ankle and being away for about two weeks. But I worked hard yesterday dividing perennials and weeding in one of the gardens – so I’m getting there. Have a wonderful weekend my friend!! ; o )

        6. Thanks. I want to do a lot in my garden but it’s so hot right now, I’ve just put it on hold. I wish you all the best with gardening. Have a pleasant week!
          Liz

        7. I have no ‘VOOM’ – I had all day and am just heading out to garden at 1:45… I don’t know where all my ‘VOOM’ went… I think I left it at the Poconos!! ; o (

    1. Thank you my dear and so sorry for the ever late response. I’m just so busy with the kids, work and other stuff. I can’t seem to get back into blogging. Have a wonderful weekend!
      Liz

  3. Lately I’ve been struggling with lunches. Not sure why, possibly my mind can’t come up with something quick, easy and appetizing. I must say the bright colours of this dish are making my mouth water and I haven’t even had breakfast yet! I’m with you on our long weekend, binge watch something of interest. Netflix is great isn’t it? It has cooled off somewhat here and we are being promised rain by Wednesday. What little bit we have had so far has really done nothing for the soil. Oh well, we should be thankful for what we do get. Enjoy the rest of the long weekend. HAve a great week ahead Liz! I may try your deelish looking pasta for lunch today! Thank you!

    1. Hi Sandy,
      Oh yes I’ve been binge watching shows since Friday. I don’t have anything much to do this weekend which is great for a change. My weekends are ever so busy. Right now I’m just listening to music and planning some late lunch with a huge glass of smoothie. There is lots of sunshine here, no sign of rain. I hope you do get ample rain for the soil. Have a wonderful week. Thank you too!
      Liz
