Your Weekly Feed Link Up #2



Happy Mothers Day!  We hope that you have had a great weekend and if you are a Mum were well looked after today. We are back for our second week of “Your Weekly Feed”.  Firstly, thank you so much for all your support & feedback over this new venture and to everyone who linked up a recipe. There is so much yumminess being shared around I definitely have put a few on the meal plan to try out, it’s wonderful for broadening the repertoire!  (You can take a look at last weeks here).

If you are new to this page Kim from the Land of Zonkt and I are hosting a weekly link up for every day meals and we hope that this page becomes a great resource for meal inspiration. (If you would like to link up a recipe and we really hope you do, scroll down for the details, if you are not a blogger but have a recipe to share please feel free to email it).

Last week chicken seemed to be particularly popular, how good do these Baked Citrus Drumsticks look from My Brown Paper Packages?


This Spicy Mexican Chicken Tortilla Pie from The nOATbook looks amazing! I’m keen to try it out.


Did anything take your fancy from last week?

My contribution to “Your Weekly Feed” this week is a Lamb & Zucchini Penne Pasta which is a cheap, cheerful, quick, easy but very tasty mid week meal.


Recipe is adapted from one in the March 2015 “Recipes +” Magazine

Allspice Lamb & Zucchini Pasta


  • 300 g packet penne pasta (or pasta of your choice I used a gluten free one)
  • 2 zucchini's grated (in Thermomix Speed 5 / 6 seconds)
  • 400 g lamb mince
  • 2 Tbsp Olive oil
  • 1 tsp allspice
  • 1 clove garlic (crushed)
  • 1 fresh long red chilli, finely sliced or 1/2 red capsicum
  • 1/2 C grated parmesan (Speed 7 / 10 seconds)
  • Lemon wedges to serve


  1. Cook pasta as per packet instructions and drain. Using your hands squeeze any excess liquid from the zucchini and set aside.
  2. Heat the oil in a large frying pan, add the mince and cook for about 5 minutes until it's browned and break up any lumps. Add the garlic & allspice and stir through.
  3. Add the zucchini (capsicum if using) and cooked pasta into the frypan and continue cooking for about 3 - 5 minutes. If using chilli add it and the parmesan and stir through.
  4. Season with salt & pepper, plate up and top with some more parmesan and lemon wedges.
  5. Dinner done!

See?  Too easy!

    Thanks for featuring my Tortilla Pie. This week’s contribution is quite similar, we must be into Mexican flavours at the moment. I don’t tend to think of lamb when I cook pasta, but it would be perfect in the colder winter months.
