Last minute main course
On to the main course. Our tip: let the oven do the work so you don’t have to spend all your time in the kitchen. Or go for a simple but effective paste; the dish that really makes everyone happy. Make the plates nice and minimalistic so that no one even notices that you have just prepared everything in one pan or oven.

- Also from the oven: chicken and cauliflower with mango chutney from the baking tray
- The easiest Pasta alla Vodka ever
