Hey Hey Lovelies…hope you didn’t miss me much. This AWOL Blogger had been busy travelling back home to South Africa for my better-halfs work commitments but I got to go along this time….afterall it is HOME and who wouldn’t want to go along hey.
I had an awesome, even though hectically busy, few weeks in South Africa , and as We jetted back out to Bahrain , this beautiful sight had greeted us farewell for 2015. I like to refer to it as “My Home Soil” … a kaleidoscope of colours??.
So then back to our “Home Away from Home” Bahrain and back to somewhat of a normality, with travels on the agenda yet again, and with a limited pantry supply, this quick and easy meal could have served as a Vegetarian main meal OR like I had done, served it as a Side Dish. This meal goes perfectly with any main meal, from Grilled meats to Seafood.

NOTES BY FOODEVA MARSAY
* Any type of Pasta may be used and
* since it’s “Alfredo” use as much or Little Parmesan Cheese for a creamier end result.
* OR like me I left the cheese out completely as I made use of thick cream.
* sweetcorn or any other vegetables you prefer may also be used.
* If a regular Cooking/Whipping Cream is used, Then simply add 1 Tablespoon of Corn Starch to thicken sauce.
