A truly easy weeknight dinner, this rice dish is like a simple paella or jambalaya - add broad beans or sweetcorn for extra colour. I halved the amount of chorizo and added a large roasted chicken breast with the peas to cut down on the saltiness
Oven-baked leek & bacon risotto - Made this for tea tonight. Normally I can't be bothered to hover over a risotto even though I love them but baking it is awesomely easy and this particular one is delicious!
Italian cusine never goes out of fashion. This recipe for Tuscan slow-cooked shin of beef with chianti is a brilliant example of how to do things simply but perfectly. This is a great one to make when you need to feed a crowd.
