One of the main things that stops me being a vegetarian is that I would miss fish too much! Red meat I can do without, though it is nice for a treat once in a while, and chicken and turkey are just nice for a bit of variety, but fish...I definitely couldn't live without! I need my brain food!
Not so long a go a friend of mine introduced me to this dish - I don't know his exact recipe, and didn't have him around to ask so I thought I would experiment, luckily for me it was a success!
The pasta is hearty, cheese is creamy, brocolli is fresh, and mackerel salty which makes it the perfectly balanced dish!
What's more, the combination of cheap ingredients and the omega 3 (a.k.a. brain food) makes it brilliant for students!
Pricing (for one portion) - based on Asda's own brand unless otherwise specified:
Mackerel (half a tin) 37p, Pasta 5p (can't belive how cheap pasta is these days? CLICK HERE), Cream cheese 20p, Brocolli 18p, Salt & Pepper 1p...
Total = 81p!
This recipe definitely deserves to make it into my best budget recipes.
If you've not come across mackerel before, or are looking for new ways to cook it, I highly recommend this recipe!
