pasta      rock cod


Multi-grain angel hair pasta 8oz
1/3 cup fresh parsley chopped
5-6 cloves garlic minced…
2 tbsp. olive oil
8 oz. tomato sauce low salt or salt free home made.
1 lbs. ocean perch, rock cod or lion fish fillets (cut into strips so that you 21-25 count/lbs these should be about prawn size) (Leatherjacket works well but you do not get that prawn like taste.
ginger to taste.



Boil the water with ginger in a good sized pot. When it’s at a rolling boil add the pasta cook 4-6 mins. Drain the pasta and put pasta back in the pot.

In a big fry pan heat the olive oil and brown the garlic,
then add the tomato sauce, fish strips.

Once the fish is cooked pour the pan into the pot of pasta and stir gently so as not break up the fish.

Garnish with parsley

broad bean time


Super simple “peasant pasta” with our home grown broad beans, thyme and parsley.

Cook the pasta (try a pasta substitute) in boiling water as per the instructions and add broad beans and podded snow peas in last 3 minutes cooking. Drain but leave 1/2 cup of water.

Meanwhile, fry the multigrain breadcrumbs with thyme, chopped chillis, garlic and in a little olive oil till crisp. Set aside.

Fry up the sardines and garlic in a little olive oil, add lemon juice and add to the multigrain breadcrumbs.

You can add in some more garlic at this point if you love your garlic. Just grate over top and mix through

Mix in the pasta, loads of chopped parsley and serve.

I call it peasant pasta because it is inexpensive to make. A huge dish for a family is made for less than $5.00 if you can get your broad beans cheap. You can leave out the broad beans and substitute peas. I added some podded snow peas.



Try a Pasta Substitute.

Pasta substitutes which are gluten free and for diabetics.

The author loves all kinds of pasta, but in recent years I have had to modify my diet to account for a sensitivity to gluten.  As a result, I have developed some great ideas that are also helpful for diabetics looking for a pasta substitute!  I have compiled my top 5 for you.  Some substitutes are healthier for diabetics because they are higher in protein and/or fiber than pasta is.  (The higher protein and fiber content helps with regulating blood sugar).  Some of my suggestions are lower than pasta in carbohydrate and calories, allowing you to have a larger portion size!
