Yes, you heard correctly!
I cooked us dinner last night!
I used a recipe inspired by something that I found online: a Cheese and Broccoli Pasta Bake. My mum, of course supervised me in the kitchen because I’m a little bit inexperienced. But I really want to learn to start cooking! So I suppose the best place to learn is in the kitchen!
I followed the directions as much as possible but made some alterations here and there. Making the cream sauce was quite a job as it was difficult to keep it from going lumpy! I managed to nail it in the end with the aid of a little perseverance!
Thankfully it all paid off and the sauce was thick and creamy with minimal lumps – ready to combine in a dish with the pasta for the oven!
I seasoned one of the dishes with mixed herbs and left the other plain for my mum who doesn’t like the taste of them too much.
The finished product:
Served with potatoes, carrots and chicken wrapped in bacon. I made a tasty dinner!
Overall I really enjoyed being in the kitchen and making this dish. It was rewarding to watching all the ingredients come together and make a hearty dinner! I definitely want to get in the kitchen cooking more often!
