Oh my god dinner

I found this recipe after watching BBC breakfast on Saturday, after seeing Jack from http://agirlcalledjack.com talking about eating on £1 per day. They were also discussing the Live Below The Line UK challenge. It does make you think about how lucky those of us are who don't have to budget to such an extent. 

I've also put a couple of her recipes on this weeks meal plan to try them out, as the recipes do look delicious! 

I was really impressed with the flavour and textures in this pasta dish. Definitely something I would have again and to be honest I REALLY love brie. It's one of my favourite cheeses. 

The recipe I used is here , but I did make some changes to this recipe as my budget is not quite as low:
  • Spaghetti was gluten free
  • I used 250 g of spaghetti in the recipe and I didn't break the pasta before boiling
  • I used around 80 g of brie
  • We had some leftover chicken to used, so chopped the meat from one chicken leg and put this in towards the end of cooking.
  • We're also a huge fan of garlic in this house, so we did also use 2 garlic cloves.
  • I added a glug of olive oil to the pan with the spaghetti just before serving, when the spaghetti was off the heat.
