Summer is always a great time to garden in outdoor spaces or turn your balcony into a green oasis. This year, I even took part in a few webinars on urban gardening and found out tons of useful information.

A common source of food waste derives from lack of ideas about how to cook the ingredients we already have. We buy food and after a few days it starts to rot, or we simply don’t enjoy it as much as imagined before.

Autumn is just around the corner, and the change of colours makes me crave almost daily for my favourite fruits: tomatoes. This recipe is intended to rescue not very fresh tomatoes and transform them into a tasty pasta sauce. A fresh home-made pasta recipe is proposed but feel free to use as well regular bought pasta…Especially that forgotten portion still lying in the fridge!
