Looks real tasty, whatever Huevos Rancheros with Carne Asada is

I can see poached egg and beef, what else is in there?
Huevos is the Spanish word for eggs, and huevos rancheros is a Mexican breakfast made with eggs, cooked salsa and corn tortillas. Carne asada is grilled meat- I marinated skirt steak in jalapeños, coriander, garlic, citrus juice, worcester, cumin etc... then seared it on my grill pan.

I won't need to eat for a week now.

Seriously, I don't know why I don't buy skirt steak more often. It's so cheap and so flavorful.

For two chicken breasts I used
1/3 tsp curry powder
1/3 tsp chilli powder
1/3 tsp tandoori seasoning
1/3 tsp garam masala
drizzle of oil
For purely visual impact I added a few drops of red food colouring.
Sometimes tandoori seasoning can be very red, same with chilli powder.
The tandoori seasoning I used is more of an orange colour and the chilli powder is a earthy red colour so I used the food colouring to boost the colour. Serves no other purpose though. It will taste just as good but be a yellowish colour. You could also add paprika to boost the colour.

I grilled them on top grill setting until charred/cooked both sides.
Looks really nice and thanks for the recipe, I feel like trying it. And it's a nice healthy one too, with chicken breast, salad, flatbread (I wouldn't be able to eat the fries though unfortunately!)

I think it is a good idea to boost the colour of the chicken. My dad has always said 'one eats with one's eyes' as the look of food is equally as important as the taste. I really believe that.

Really easy! The trofie pasta was in the fresh section in Sainsburys - was on special offer for £1.

300g trofie pasta / small shaped pasta
150g fine green beans
150g sliced new potatoes
tub of fresh pesto / or home made!
4tbsps freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano / Parmesan + extra to garnish
Fresh picked basil leaves (optional)

Bring a saucepan of water to the boil

You can cook everything in the one pot but you need to work out when it'll all be ready together. As a guide, I cook my potatoes for 8 minutes, my green beans for 6 minutes and the fresh pasta was 6 minutes also but if you get dried trofie, it can take as long as 18 minutes to cook so you just need to do a bit of maths.

After it's all cooked, drain in a colander, throw it back in the saucepan with the 4 tbsps cheese, pesto and basil leaves.

Serve garnished with more cheese.
