Aah, load shedding. Well no use moaning about the situation, rather time to make sure you have enough candles and a couple of excellent recipes you can rustle up on a gas-burner. My go-to blackout supper is the classic Italian pasta sauce Boscaiola. All you do is clean and slice 500g button mushrooms. Soften a chopped onion in a little olive oil, then add 2 cloves crushed garlic and the mushrooms. At this point some recipes call for cooked bacon and cream https://bit.ly/1G9jhUO, while others go with chopped tinned tomatoes https://bit.ly/1rMozen – it’s your call. Serve with whatever cooked filled or plain pasta you like, topped with some fresh flat-leaf parsley (if you can see to chop herbs in the dark, otherwise just scissor them in alla Nigella.). What do you usually serve the family when the lights go out?
