After our first attempt at making Jamie Oliver’s 30 minute meals with Stuffed cypriot chicken, we were really excited to try making another 30 minute meal again.
So the next day, we watched another episode of the show, and decided to make Broccoli Orecchiette Pasta with Zucchini & Bocconcini Salad, and Prosciutto & Melon Salad.
Again, we took 1 hour to make it this time. It really shouldn’t take an hour, because the 2 salads can be made in 10 minutes. Most of the time went to figuring out how to work Dee’s food processor, going back to video/cook book, and preparation. If you have all ingredients and kitchen tools ready, I think this can really be done in 30 minutes.
The meal was really yummy, and again everything tasted together really well. I loved everything, but my favorite was the prosciutto & melon salad, there was a good balace between the sweet melon and the saltiness of the prosciutto. It was the refreshing part of the meal. I will be making this salad more often because it was so easy to do.
